CBD is a powerful natural plant medicine that people are using daily to help bring their endocannabinoid system back in balance, which in turn, relieves related ailments and chronic conditions.
CBD (or Cannabidiol) belongs to a family of naturally occurring phytochemicals known as cannabinoids. Phytocannabinoids are those cannabinoids that are produced in plants, whereas endocannabinoids are those that are endogenous to the human body. At the molecular level, they are identical and yield the same effects.
Many ailments and chronic conditions are caused by deficiencies in the endocannabinoid system!
CBD works by binding to cannabinoid receptors in the body’s endocannabinoid system. These receptors have been found in virtually every cell and tissue type in the human body, and because many ailments and chronic conditions are caused by deficiencies in the endocannabinoid system, the human body is able to accept phytocannabinoids to supplement endocannabinoid deficiencies. Essentially, CBD brings balance back to your endocannabinoid system and relieves many related ailments and chronic conditions.
Your Endocannabinoid System (ECS) is the human body’s very own “internal” cannabis system.
Similar to many of our agricultural commodities, the Cannabis Sativa plant has been refined over thousands of years through artificial selection. Generations of human influence has optimized its efficacy on human health.
It should be noted that CBD is a non-toxic, non-euphoric substance. It does not have an intoxicating effect on humans like THC does. In fact, the World Health Organization has published multiple reports that claim CBD is safe to use and is non-habit forming.
