WHat is CBD?
Cannabidoil (CBD) is a naturally occurring endocannabinoid produced by cannabis plants. It is nonpsychoactive and nonintoxicating. It acts on the CB1 and CB2 receptors of the body’s endocannabinoid system. These receptors are found throughout the body (muscles, organs, glands, nerves, bones) and perform different tasks within each body system. However, the end goal of each of these tasks is the same: homeostasis, or bringing your body back into balance. CBD helps encourage homeostasis by keeping other chemicals from latching on to your CB1 and CB2 receptors.
