What is CBD??

If I had a dollar for every time I’ve heard this, I would be a very wealthy woman!! 🙂 

But before answering the nagging, WHAT IS CBD question. I think we need to dive first into the human body Endocannabinoid System and ask WHAT THE HECK IS THAT?...And then, it will make the WHAT IS CBD question much more easy to understand! 

So…..WHAT THE HECK is the Endocannabinoid System?? 

Our Endocannabinoid System comprises two types of receptors, CB1 and CB2, which are huge functions in our health and well being. This is why CBD works so great. 

Our Endocannabinoid System is like electrical outlets in our bodies. It controls our central nervous system, including our brains. When we “plug in” these outlets, which are the Cannabinoid receptors, it causes our own Cannabinoids in our system to activate. 

Our CB1 receptors are found in the brain, central nervous system and other tissues of the body. Our CB2 receptors are found in the peripheral organs and mostly cells associated with our immune system. 

The question I also hear a lot is, WILL CBD GET ME HIGH?...The answer is NO! 

CBD is NOT psychoactive like THC.
