1. What is CBD?
Officially called Cannabidiol, it is one of over 100 cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant which, when absorbed, interacts with a network of receptor’s in our body called the endocannabinoid system. Scientific research shows us that it is one of the most important physiological systems involved in establishing and maintaining human health. It is present everywhere in the body both inside and out. It affects organs such as the heart, liver, pancreas, and stomach. It affects our skin. When the signaling is disrupted, many disorders and conditions can persist such as hypertension, diabetes, liver and skin problems, sleeplessness, and anxiety. CBD’s most beneficial property is that it serves as an extraordinary anti-inflammatory. We have been reading about the multitude of conditions and problems that it can aid. How does it impact so many different things? They are all connected by a common factor… inflammation.
