And what form of CBD is right for which occasion? It is our job to provide you with the key points on all our products to help you decipher what’s best for you.
What is CBD?
CBD is an abbreviation for Cannabidiol. CBD is one of many different molecules known as cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant and is non-psychoactive. Cannabinoids are active compounds produced by all cannabis plants. They account for most of the benefits of cannabis. Cannabinoids found in plants are technically called phytocannabinoids, while cannabinoids produced by the human body are called endocannabinoids. Cannabinoids interact with the body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS), which promotes homeostasis. CBD impacts the ECS indirectly by activating outside receptors and interacting with enzymes.
The human endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a system of neurotransmitters and cell membrane receptors. Neurotransmitters such as endocannabinoids are produced by the central nervous system and interacts with cannabinoids receptors on cell membranes to adjust physiological processes at a cellular level. There are two types of cannabinoid receptors in your body:
- CB1 receptors – found mostly in the brain and central nervous system (CNS)
- CB2 receptors – found throughout the rest of the body in organs, glands, and the immune system.
Why do people use CBD daily?
The reason CBD is integrated into many people’s daily lives is because it promotes homeostasis throughout the body, otherwise known as balance. Rather than acting as an outside contaminant, CBD indirectly stimulates the production of cannabinoids the body already synthesises.
What CBD products are right for you?
This entirely depends on your routine and how you prefer to take it. In our product range we have both topical and edible products. Let’s run through a few examples of how CBD can fit into your everyday routine.
