What is CBD?


Cannabidiol (CBD) is a naturally occurring compound found in the flower of cannabis, a plant with a history as a medicine going back decades. CBD is now being tested and confirmed by scientists and doctors around the world as safe, non-addictive substance, CBD is one of more than a hundred “phytocannabinoids,” that are unique to the cannabis therapeutic profile.

CBD’s potential as a treatment for a range of conditions, including (but not limited to):

  • Autoimmune diseases (inflammation, rheumatoid arthritis)

  • Neurological conditions (Alzheimer’s, dementia, Parkinson’s, multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, Huntington’s chorea, stroke, traumatic brain injury)

HOW DOES CBD WORK?


CBD interacts with our bodies in a variety of ways. One of the main ways is by augmenting the effects of the compounds in our bodies called “endogenous cannabinoids” - so named because of their similarity to compounds found in the cannabis plant. These “endocannabinoids” are part of what scientists refer to as the “endocannabinoid system.”
