What Is CBD?

What is CBD? We get that question a lot. It’s surprising that more people aren’t privy to this highly beneficial cannabinoid found in hemp. When most people think of hemp they think “marijuana” and therefore think stoners sitting on a couch eating potato chips. CBD couldn’t be further from this visual.

So, what is CBD? The easy answer is that it is a component of the hemp plant that doesn’t get you high but has been recognized for its health benefits in humans and animals alike. Our bodies have something called the endocannabinoid system that acts as receptors for the compounds in the cannabis plant. CBD, when extracted correctly, has been shown to offer the body health benefits such as:

  • Pain Relief
  • Anti-Inflammatory
  • Antioxidant
  • Anti-Nausea
  • Anxiety Relief
  • Insomnia Relief
  • Improved Mood
  • Anti-Seizure
  • Among many others

Some common forms of CBD are oils, tinctures, vapes, salves, sprays and lozenges. This non-addictive, non-psychoactive, healing compound produces no known side effects and is a natural way to heal your body.
