CBD DEFINED

CBD is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid scientifically referred to as cannabidiol. 

Cannabinoids are phytochemicals found in varieties of cannabis sativa including industrial hemp. There are over a hundred cannabinoids identified in hemp. 

Other phytochemicals include flavonoids, polyphenols and terpenes

The phytochemicals are found in glandular heads known as trichomes

Phytochemicals are natural chemicals produced by plants as a response to stress and their environment.

Why is CBD ingested?

Cannabinoids bind to receptors in the body that are apart of the endocannabinoid system.

Researchers have found that the endocannabinoid system contains CB1 receptors primarily located in throughout the nervous system, organs and connective tissue and CB2 receptors located throughout your immune system.

Researchers have further identified that your endocannabinoid system helps maintain your bodies homeostasis.

CBD, which binds to both CB1 and CB2 receptors throughout your body is known as a "homeostatic modulator".

Homeostasis is known biologically as your bodies' natural balancing of internal, physical and chemical reactions.
