What is CBD?
Almost everyone has heard about CBD and many people take this powerful plant-based ingredient for its unique and potential physical and emotional health benefits. CBD is short for “Cannabidiol”, which is a powerful molecule found in the hemp plant. It is the second most abundant part of the plant, right after THC or Tetrahydrocannabinol.
Some experts call CBD the most important ingredient in the hemp plant, since it, according to much peer-reviewed research, may help people better manage and reduce unwanted symptoms associated with pain, inflammation, sleeplessness, depression and anxiety, and without causing feelings of being “high” or euphoric, which are effects produced by THC. In other words, people can feel better without the high.
Our bodies and brains appear to have a very special relationship with CBD. We produce naturally occurring chemicals within our internal biological systems which bind with cellular receptors to help bring balance and restoration to our mood, sleep, memory, appetite, and the immune system. Think of CBD as the key that unlocks our body’s ability to bring about equilibrium and greater stability to multiple systems.
Since everyone is different, some people have a healthy biological system while others are deficient. There are times when this system simply cannot produce enough natural chemicals to restore itself back to health. Taking CBD can optimize & restore our biological system so that it can return to its important work of balancing our biological systems.
CBD, then, is the most important and useful molecule from the hemp plant, because it feeds our natural internal biological systems, especially when it needs a boost. In doing so, CBD can provide many physical and emotional health benefits. It can be thought of as an all-natural key that opens our internal system to bring about wellness and balance.
