We know why you’re here. You’re curious about the increasingly popular buzzword: CBD. But what does it stand for? And what does it mean? CBD is an abbreviation for the word, Cannabidiol, a naturally occuring chemical compound found abundant in the hemp plant. CBD is among the non-psychoactive compounds, meaning that it doesn’t get you “high” or give you a buzz like its familiar cousin, delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).
CBD acts on the brain and the body with therapeutic effects that may provide relief to an array of unpleasant symptoms, working its magic by imitating compounds that our bodies produce naturally, called endocannabinoids. These endocannabinoids activate to maintain internal stability and optimal health, something we can all agree on striving for.
If you’ve ever experienced any kind of pain, you probably didn’t know that your pain was sourced from a deficiency in your Endocannabinoid System (ECS), the largest receptor system present in humans and animals alike. If you’re confused about why you’ve never heard of an essential system occurring in your own body, you’re not the only one! The ECS wasn’t discovered until the late 1900s, becoming one of the most major discoveries in cannabinoid science.
When our bodies are out of balance due to a shortage of our naturally produced endocannabinoids, CBD can act as a supplement to restore homeostasis. CBD can help deliver anti-inflammatory properties and relief to symptoms of anxiety and depression, pain, and stress; to name a few on the extensive list of conditions in need of a helping hand.
