What is CBD?

In today’s society CBD has rapidly become a prominent player in the medical space. Whether at stores, dispensaries, or referral from a friend, CBD is everywhere and many are unaware of its function. So what exactly is CBD? CBD is short for Cannabidiol, which is a small subsequent ingredient that makes up marijuana with Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) which gets you “high”. CBD is non-psychoactive so it doesn't get you “high”. CBD is extracted from the hemp plant, where THC is extracted from the marijuana plant. 

CBD works from its direct effect on the endocannabinoid system (ECS) in the human body. The ECS is responsible for regulating one’s moods, hormones, metabolism, and sleep schedule. The ECS runs on a consistent supply of cannabinoids, some coming straight from your body (endocannabinoids), and some directly from plants (photocannabinoids). CBD is the most prominent cannabinoid and when applied or ingested to the the body it creates an extra boost for the ECS in relaxing and balancing the body.
