What is CBD?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a non-psychoactive chemical compound extracted from hemp that works by imitating compounds our bodies naturally produce, called endocannabinoids, Anandamide (AEA). CBD is not a drug and has a long history of natural uses and its benefits have become even clearer through recent research. Its effects in the body are mediated through the Endocannabinoid system.
CBD was fundamental in the discovery of the Endocannabinoid system – a discovery only made in the last twenty years. Present in all humans and other mammals, the Endocannabinoid system can be thought of as the messenger of information flow between our immune system and the central nervous system. Integral to our physiologies, its function is to maintain balance. This balance, or more correctly; homeostasis, is a state whereby a stable internal environment is maintained regardless of any external change. This homeostasis maintains health at every level; from micro sub-cellular to macro organ scale, endocannabinoids play a significant role in our survival and adaptation in dynamic and potentially hostile environments.
Beyond this, the Endocannabinoid system is involved in even further physiological and neurological processes such as pain and analgesia, appetite, stress, mood and memory. It’s now becoming clear that the Endocannabinoid system operates as an interface with the nervous system and is, ultimately, a literal bridge between our bodies and our minds.
Effortless One-Stop Healing
DRIVEN BY NATURE, CRAFTED FOR YOU
CBD was shown to reduce anxiety in patients with social anxiety disorder.
CBD and CBG also have analgesic and anti-inflammatory effects, indicating that there is scope for developing drugs which do not have the psychoactive properties of THC.
Can Prevent COGNITIVE DISORDERS
Pre-clinical evidence largely shows that CBD can produce beneficial effects in Alzheimer's Disease, Parkinson's Disease and Multi Sclerosis patients.
