What is CBD Oil?
CBD Oil (cannabidiol) is the non-psychoactive phytocannabinoids found in hemp. Unlike other cannabinoids, CBD contains very little (<0.3%) THC, the main psychoactive component in the cannabis plant. Thus, CBD has no mind-altering impact and is legal in the US.
CBD works to strengthen the Endocannabinoid System (ECS) in our bodies. The ECS contains CB1 and CB2 receptors throughout the body; in the brain, organs, connective tissues, glands, and immune cells. It helps decrease inflammation and anxiety, regulate appetite and sleep patterns, and boosts our natural production of Endocannabinoids.
