What is CBD?
CBD is known as cannabidiol, which is a phytocannabinoid - a plant derived cannabinoid. There are 85 known cannabinoids and cannabidiol is just one of them.
Cannabinoids are small compounds that are found not only in cannabis plants (such as hemp or marijuana plants) but also in flax seeds, chocolate, black pepper, and even echinacea.
Cannabinoids affect receptors on every cell in our body (except brain stem), and these receptors are part of the Endocannabinoid System.
This system is responsible for creating proper communication between our body systems such as: neurological, digestive, cardiovascular, hormonal, lymphatic, muscular, etc. It also promotes balanced awareness in our tissues, cells, connective tissues, and intracellular matrix.
