What is CBD?

Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of thousands of cannabinoids produced by the Cannabis sativa plant. But, unlike its infamous cannabinoid cousin, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), Cannabidiol won’t make you feel elated, intoxicated, or give you the munchies. Don’t let that stop you reading, though. CBD might not seem as cool at first glance, but this natural remedy has recently been making headlines for its powerful ability to help relieve the symptoms of insomnia, pain, anxiety, stress and inflammation. It’s even been rumoured to help with sexual dysfunction. We’re not here to feed the rumour mill though; we’re here to help you get up to date on what’s fact and what’s just fad, when it comes to CBD.

What is Cannabidiol?

CBD, discovered in the 1940’s, is a non-psychoactive phytocannabinoid, which occurs naturally in cannabis. When consumed, it triggers similar responses to the ones our bodies use to organically bring our endocannabinoid system (ECS) to homeostasis; the state of internal harmony.

Your ECS is always functioning, whether or not there’s cannabis in your system and its primary role is to keep your body in a state of homeostasis; regulating your mood, movement and sleep. When not functioning correctly, a disrupted ECS can lead to health concerns including diminished immune response, appetite and metabolism disharmony, memory loss, fertility and reproduction issues and stress, amongst many others.
