What is CBD?

The cannabis plant contains more than 100 different chemical compounds known as cannabinoids, which interact with the body's endocannabinoid system in ways that researchers are still working toward understanding. One of those cannabinoids is CBD, or cannabidiol. CBD is non-psychoactive, which means it won't get you high and can actually counteract the psychoactivity of THC.

How Does CBD Work?

Cannabidiol interacts with our bodies through the network of neurons called the endocannabinoid system. The endocannabinoid system runs throughout your body, touching all of the major systems. It’s filled with receptors that bind to the cannabidiol (CBD) you introduce to your bloodstream when you consume or apply CBD. Put simply, when it binds to the endocannabinoid system receptors, it stimulates all kinds of beneficial changes in the body.
