Cannabidiol, CBD for short, is a compound that interacts with the body’s endocannabinoid system – the series of receptors that regulate pain, mood, the immune system, memory, appetite, stress, and other important functions.

CBD oil is extracted from the leaves and flowers of cannabis plants and, once it’s isolated from the rest of the plant, it can be incorporated into a plethora of other products, such as our CBD oil herbal drops and CBD balms. CBD hemp oil is used to relieve the symptoms of a range of ailments, ranging from anxiety and depression through to OCD, PTSD, epilepsy and chronic pain.

WHAT DOES CBD STAND FOR?

CBD is a chemical that is derived from the cannabis plant. The chemicals found in cannabis are known as cannabinoids, and when consumed they react with different parts of your brain and body. They are also known as an agonist, which is a chemical that joins to a receptor in your brain, which in turn produces a response. For instance, if the brain does not produce enough of a chemical it can lead to pain, mood disorders and other illnesses. Many medications taken for such chemical imbalances interact with the brain’s receptors letting it know whether to produce more or less of the needed neurotransmitter. CBD works by communicating with two different receptors found in the Endocannabinoid system; CB1 and CB2.

Endocannabinoid System (ECS)

The Endocannabinoid system is responsible purely for the functions that connect us to our immune system, organs and how our body reacts to the world surrounding us. CBD compounds have been found to work with the ECS system which encourages the healing of cells and repairing of tissues. In a nutshell it helps the signals be transmitted from one receptor to another.
