What is CBD?
CBD or Cannabidiol is one of many chemicals produced by the Cannabis plant. These chemicals or CBDs are organized by their ability to act with our cannabinoid receptors in our endocannabinoid system. CBD is becoming so popular because it doesn't produce the same "high effects" that THC produces.
Why is CBD so popular and there are claims about "benefits"?
CBD has become HUGE overnight because a number of children with epilepsy have had success with using CBD. There have been a number of trials with CBD and it has been seen to help a bunch of things like depression, anxiety, addiction, inflammatory conditions, and more.
Receptors in our brains
The brain consists of millions of neurons firing. Neurons connect to others in a process called synapses. Brain receptors are sensitive to things even that is naturally produced in your body like serotonin or dopamine. When using CBD you're allowing these plant-based elements travel through your body and interact with the appropriate receptors and our endocannabinoid system.
