What to Know about CBD

What is CBD?

CBD, short for cannabidiol, is found in the cannabis plant. The essential oil is produced from the stalk, stems, leaves, and flowers of agricultural hemp plants.

Cannabinoids are part of a class of diverse chemical compounds that act on receptors in the human endocannabinoid system. Unlike THC, CBD and other cannabinoids are non-psychoactive.

How Does CBD Work?*

Ananda Professional Graphic: The Cannabinoid Receptors

Humans and all mammals have a natural receptor system, known as the endocannabinoid system (ECS), that acts as messengers throughout the entire body, giving the body specific directions on what to regulate in the body, such as appetite, depression, immune function, memory, pain and sleep.

If the body does not produce enough endocannabinoids or cannot regulate them properly, you are more susceptible to illnesses that affect one or more of the functions listed above. External sources of cannabinoids, like CBD, can help regulate your endocannabinoid system.

CBD binds to these receptors, which causes the body to produce more of them. This strengthens the communication between cells. Much of the therapeutic effect of CBD is carried out by our human endocannabinoid system. CBD simply promotes normal function.
