What is CBD?

CBD - or Cannabidiol - is one of the compounds found in the cannabis sativa plant. These compounds, known as phytocannabinoids, have been found to help regulate bodily processes by affecting the body’s Endocannabinoid System.

The most commonly known phytocannabinoids are CBD and THC. The latter is the psychoactive compound that causes the ‘high’ associated with the marijuana plant. Like marijuana, hemp is also in the cannabis sativa family of plants, however it contains no more than 0.3% THC and therefore is non-psychoactive and does not cause a ‘high’ feeling. CBD from hemp is legal at the federal level.

CBD does not cause any ‘high’ but is known for supporting a variety of processes in the human body and mind.

How can I benefit from using CBD?

CBD is known for supporting a variety of bodily processes via the Endocannabinoid system. The ECS affects many normal functions of the human body, including mood, sleep, appetite, memory, reproduction and fertility.

In a study produced by Scott Shannon, researchers designed a large case series to study the effects of Cannabidiol on 72 patients with anxiety and sleep disorders. After seeing a decrease in anxiety in nearly 80% of the patients within one month, they concluded that ‘CBD may hold benefit for anxiety-related disorders.’ (Source)

There are countless other studies being undertaken, and it is believed that its benefits are so impactful because CBD is strengthening your body’s own natural system, to maintain homeostasis (that is, a state of internal stability and balance) and make adjustments based on what it is that your body needs at that moment.
