What is CBD?

So What is CBD?

Well for that we need to first know the following about Cannabis.  After nearly 100 years of prohibition, there is an awakening globally around Cannabis, the uses, and the benefits. Because of nearly a century old propaganda campaign, Cannabis has a stigma attached to it. Simple. Such that many people have little to no understanding of the power and potential benefits of this plant.

So let us look into this and see exactly what Cannabidiol (CBD) is.  Why are people flocking to it in record numbers?

CBD is one of over 100 Cannabinoids in Cannabis plants.  These cannabinoids produce mental and physical effects when consumed. CBD is non-psychoactive, is legal in most developed countries and is a major phytocannabinoid that accounts for up to 40% of the plants’ extract.


Let us just expand on this a little.  Mentioned above, CBD is Non-Psychoactive, therefore it has no mind-altering effects. Another compound called Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the psychoactive cannabinoid; it is THC that is illegal in many countries. Although this number is rapidly decreasing. Society is waking up to the benefits of this wonderful little plant.

Studies demonstrate that CBD interacts with a system in the body called the Endocannabinoid System (ECS) further supplementing your bodies naturally produced cannabinoid called Anandamide. CBD aids in the maintenance of homeostasis and can certainly contribute to a healthy and varied lifestyle.

There are too many positive properties associated with Cannabinoid products to keep track with. Most especially around CBD.  Therapeutic benefits research is underway, although it is very positive, it is sadly still in its infancy.
