What are Cannabinoids?
Cannabinoids are a diverse group of chemical compounds naturally found in the human body (endo-cannabinoids) and also in cannabis plants (phyto-cannabinoids).
What is the Endocannabinoid System?
Discovered in the 20th Century, the endocannabinoid system is a network of cannabinoid receptors found throughout the body. It influences many processes like pain response, inflammation, mood, memory and digestion. CBD’s help the endocannabinoid system, cells and the body as a whole maintain balance.
How do Cannabinoids work?
Cannabinoids interact with receptors of the Endocannabinoid System (ECS) in the body to restore a normal state of healthy balance.
Is CBD psychoactive?
No, CBD present in all strains of hemp is not a psychoactive compound—CBD will not get you high (unless it contains THC). A good quality tested CBD product that is THC-free should not cause you to fail a drug test.
