Cannabidiol,
Better Known As CBD

Essential Oils

Cannabidiol, or CBD, is a popular natural compound used to aid many conditions. This chemical is just one of over a hundred compounds in the hemp plant.

CBD is extracted from the flowers of hemp plants. Unlike Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the prominent psychoactive cannabinoid found in marijuana, it does not produce intoxication. 

 

Although CBD has been used for millennia, dating back to 2900 B.C., this powerful compound has recently gained substantial momentum in the medical community due to an increasing number of positive publications. 

 

What makes CBD so unique?

Interestingly, the human body contains a set of receptors called the endocannabinoid system, which helps to regulate sleep, appetite, pain, and immune response.

Specifically, the body produces endocannabinoids, a neurotransmitter that binds to cannabinoid receptors in the nervous system.

It’s as if the human body was made to pair up perfectly with cannabidiol.
