Also known as cannabidiol, CBD is a non-psychoactive compound found in hemp and has significant therapeutic properties.
CBD interacts with our network or neurons called the endocannabinoid system which runs throughout our bodies. There are two types of receptors:
CB1 receptors, which are present throughout our body but mainly our brain and deal with coordination, pain, emotion, mood, appetite and memory.
CB2 receptors, are common in the immune system and affect pain and inflammation.
These receptors will interact in different ways with our body when we take CBD. That is why CBD may do many things for us such as reducing pain and anxiety, increasing appetite, regulating sleep etc.
