What is CBD?
To understand how cannabidiol (CBD) works you must first understand the endocannabinoid system (ECS). Every mammal, bird, reptile and fish have an endocannabinoid system that is made up of a huge network of cannabinoid receptors.
The endocannabinoid system is one of a handful of receptor systems that touches almost every organ in the human body.
CBD is what is known as a phytocannabinoid, as it is derived from a plant (phyto). CBD and other phytocannabinoids can affect our bodies in very similar ways to endocannabinoids thus helping us achieve optimum wellbeing. Cannabidiol (CBD) is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid that is found in large concentrations in the trichomes (see pic) of the hemp plant and is one of over 90 bio-compounds known as cannabinoids.
