Cannabidiol or CBD is a natural and non-intoxicating compound found in the cannabis plant. CBD in particular has been found to be an alternative therapeutic source for many people looking to move away from traditional pills and medicine. Cannabidiol like many other cannabinoids, can be extracted and infused into many everyday products like topicals, oils, gummies, and an assortment of other products!
Our human bodies have an abundant source of receptors that interact with compounds found in the cannabis plant. These compounds are called cannabinoids, like CBD. The system that brings all of this together is called the endocannabinoid system. This complex system of signaling receptors ensures our bodies maintain homeostasis aka balance. In Humans, cannabidiol helps in the natural production of our bodies endocannabinoids. This occurs because cannabinoids like CBD, excite our receptors, which in-turn increases receptor productivity. CBD has also been shown to interact and affect, other systems in our bodies like, the opioid, dopamine, and serotonin receptors.
