CBD is the recent superstar of the cannabis scene. It has been at the forefront of the sweeping wave of cannabis acceptance. Now people from all walks of life are enjoying the potential benefits of CBD, from professional female athletes to stay-at-home dads! The appeal of CBD lies in the fact that it has reported soothing and relaxing properties while remaining totally non-psychoactive.
CBD is a cannabinoid, a type of chemical found in the cannabis plant (the name is a clue). Most CBD is derived from Hemp.
Cannabinoids interact with the endocannabinoid system (ECS), a series of receptors found in the human body. When consumed CBD binds with these receptors, triggering its beneficial effects without any of the potential downsides associated with cannabis.
