CBD stands for a natural substance from hemp called cannabidiol. This hemp compound is mainly extracted from the Cannabis Sativa plant. It is the second most abundant substance in cannabis. CBD has a number of advantages and positives over the better known cannabinoid THC. CBD is legal, non-psychotropic, non-intoxicating and no serious negative side effects are observed during its use.
In our body, CBD interacts with the endocannabinoid system. This is made up of a rich network of CB1 and CB2 endocannabinoid receptors that react and interact with CBD on a completely natural basis. CBD is highly similar to substances that the body produces itself to maintain homeostasis and functionality for mental and physical balance. CBD does not alter our behavior nor is it a cure, but it helps the body to function better.
