Your body is already programmed to process CBD and it already produces its own cannabinoids with a natural network of receptors called the Endocannabinoid System. The Endocannabinoid system helps us uphold our body’s natural balance, even when outside factors and lifestyle choices make that harder than ever. Phytocannabinoids from CBD instinctively fit into the receptors of the Endocannabinoid System due to the similar molecular shape and chemical composition of those naturally produced by the body and help it complete its physical process of keeping us in good balance and in good health.
CBD, or cannabidiol (can-ah-BID-ee-al), is one of more than 150 natural compounds, or cannabinoids (CAN-ah-bin-oydz), that can be found in the Cannabis plant (aka hemp). While the FDA hasn’t confirmed its benefits, there have been many clinical studies which indicate cannabinoids can help you uphold your body’s natural state of homeostasis, counter balance stress, restore healthier sleep cycles, and generally, help you flourish through the pressures of everyday life. Basically, cannabinoids help your body’s natural systems interact and operate in harmony.
