Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of the most medicinal compounds in the cannabis plant. It’s been utilized as medicine for thousands of years, and recent studies have proven it’s unique ability to heal naturally by encouraging homeostasis.
Unlike the more famous THC molecule, (tetrahydrocannabinol), CBD is completely non-psychoactive (it cannot make you feel “high”). In fact, CBD will often cancel out the psychoactivity of THC.
CBD helps your body achieve natural healing or “homeostasis” by activating your internal “endocannabinoid system” (endo meaning “internal”). Your internal cannabinoid system is a core part of your body that runs on molecules nearly identical to CBD, THC, and other “cannabinoids.” Although this system has always been part of human anatomy, it was just discovered in the 1990’s by Israeli researcher Dr. Raphael Mouchalem.
Since then, international researchers have documented the healing power of the cannabis plant to feed this system with external cannabinoids and stimulate natural healing.
When we have a rich, well-nourished endocannabinoid system, we can regulate our emotions, control inflammation, and experience overall well-being! Unfortunately, stress, toxins, synthetic drugs and common everyday chemicals deplete this system and our natural ability to prevent illness is compromised.
Among a long list of benefits, CBD has been proven by studies for the following.
- Anxiety relief
- Mitigate insomnia
- Blood pressure regulation
- Blood sugar stabilization
