What is CBD?
Cannabidiol or CBD, is a promising phytocannabinoid found in agricultural hemp. It has been recognized for its benefits on human and animal health and is capable of affecting nearly every biological process. CBD is a non-psychotoxic (i.e. it does not result in feelings of euphoria) and has a remarkable safety profile.
The Goal is Balance
Since its discovery in 1992, researchers have been investigating the existence of a central regulatory system called the Endocannabinoid System (ECS). The ECS is made of cannabinoid receptors, self-made cannabis-like compounds and enzymes that create and inactivate them. The ECS is one of the most important physiologic systems involved in establishing and maintaining human health. Endocannabinoids and their receptors are found throughout the body. In each tissue, cannabinoids perform different tasks, but the goal is always the same: homeostasis, maintaining a stable internal environment despite fluctuations in the external environment.
Why is hemp-derived CBD oil important for the ECS?
Because CBD modulates endocannabinoid tone and may keep healthy people healthy.
