Cannabidiol, or CBD for short, is revolutionizing our approach to healing. CBD is a non-psychoactive compound found in the cannabis plant. Meaning, it does not get you high (that would be THC). Science continues to discover the potent healing properties of Cannabidiol (CBD), and has made some exciting discoveries.
Recently, medical researchers have discovered that we have in our body an endocannabinoid system. Cannabinoid receptors are found throughout the nervous system and major organs, and are designed specifically for receiving cannabinoids (the compounds found in the cannabis plant). Our bodies also produce endogenous cannabinoids. The endocannabinoid system functions as a regulatory system supporting homeostasis. When our endocannabanoid system becomes deficient, a wide range of disorders can emerge. This explains why CBD has been found to be helpful for such an array of conditions.
