CBD is cannabidiol, a compound found naturally in hemp plants. In the past few years CBD has become one of the most buzzed-about topics in the natural wellness space because it may support a sense of peace and well-being in humans. Don’t worry, it’s not intoxicating, so you can add CBD to your everyday routine without experiencing a high.
Some people take CBD because they need support for specific reasons while others want to enhance their overall well-being. To understand the benefits of CBD, you need to understand what it does in the body.
CBD is a type of compound called a cannabinoid. Cannabinoids are abundant in hemp and work with a series of receptors in your body known as the endocannabinoid system (ECS). Studies show the ECS is involved in a lot of important jobs. These jobs include regulating your anti-inflammatory response, immune system, appetite, mood, anxiety levels, sleep schedule and more. Basically, the ECS helps keep your body in homeostasis.
