Benefits of CBD – what is CBD?

CBD stands for Cannabidiol, a legal compound with less than 3% of the narcotic THC, that’s extracted from the plant Cannabis Sativa.  And this CBD oil can interact with the naturally occurring cannabis-like receptors in our bodies’ regulatory systems, without causing a psychoactive effect.  Receptors are mainly present in the brain — where they’re involved with cognition, memory, motor skills and pain — but also in the peripheral nervous system, liver, thyroid, uterus and more.  So although the exact way CBD affects our bodies is still unknown, scientists think it encourages the body to produce more of its own endocannabinoids, which may help reduce anxiety, pain and inflammation.

In recent times, CBD has helped to treat many different health conditions including:

  • anxiety and depression
  • sleep disorders
  • seizures in people with epilepsy
  • pain and inflammation
  • heart health
