Introduction to CBD and benefits of CBD
CBD, or cannabidiol, is one of the active compounds named cannabinoids that naturally occur in the cannabis plant. Scientists have isolated over 100 different types of cannabinoids from cannabis, and researchers have begun to discover some of the profound therapeutic benefits that these compounds can have on the human body. CBD, in particular, is non-psychoactive, meaning it does not cause the “high” effect that the cannabinoid THC is well-known for. Instead, it is being extracted from the hemp plant and studied for the profound regulatory and restorative potential that it carries.
CBD has potent antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-spasm, anti-convulsant, anti-psychotic, anti-tumoral, and neuroprotective properties. The way that CBD works in the body and why it has so much potential to aid in various ailments is due to its interaction with all of our bodies systems such as the immune, endocrine, and nervous system.
