What is CBD?

CBD is one of 113 different cannabinoids contained within hemp plants. CBD itself stands for cannabidiol. It is a phytocannabinoid that is found in hemp and helps support healthy functioning throughout your body.

What does CBD do?

CBD does many things for you and your body. The simplest explanation is, CBD enters your body and connects to your CB1 receptors. When this connection occurs a message is sent to the cell. This message simply tells the cell to maintain healthy functioning, this is why CBD is very good for things like physical and mental stress, anxiety, high blood pressure, etc. It simply counteracts unhealthy functions within the body.

How does CBD work?

CBD can be introduced into your system in multiple ways. When introduced it connects to one of two CB receptors, CB1 or CB2.
CB1 receptors are mostly found in the brain, lungs, kidney, liver, bones, heart, and the male and female reproductive organs. These receptors are more keyed to receive tetrahydrocannabinol, also known as THCdelta9.

CB2 receptors are found in the immune system as well as in the spleen, lung, liver, bone, and muscle.
These receptors make up what is called your ECS, or also known as the Endocannabinoid System. When a cannabinoid connects with either a CB1 or CB2 receptor, the neuron that receives the cannabinoid will fire off a message. This message will be sent to other cells and will encourage them to achieve homeostasis.
