What is CBD?
Cannabidiol, otherwise known as CBD, is a dietary supplement that has many unique uses. Hemp comes from the Cannabis sativa plant, usually a hemp plant. CBD is a Phytocannabinoid, which means that it is one of the active compounds found in cannabis plants. All cannabinoids have the ability to interact with the human body on so many levels.
What is the Endocannabinoid System?
We have a biological system called the Endocannabinoid system (ECS), which works to regulate many parts of our bodies main functions. However, you might think of the ECS like a messaging system. This message system can allow our body to go into a state of balance and equilibrium. The ECS works as a network of signaling molecules called Endocannabinoids. Therefore, this is very similar to the compounds found in cannabis (except that we produce them in our body). When we ingest hemp CBD, it stimulates the creation of Endocannabinoids, leading to a better ECS and a healthier body.
So, is CBD Safe?
Yes, CBD is safe to take, according to the World Health Organization. Hemp has been shown to be non-addictive and will not get you high. In addition, hemp CBD dose not have any risks for side effects. Therefore, many people love taking hemp CBD to improve their overall health to live a happier life.
