All humans have an endocannabinoid system that regulates many physiological processes including our energy levels, mood, immune system, blood pressure, digestion, and how we experience pain, stress, cravings, etc.
brainbit: Endo = within; internal
Our own wondrous bodies actually produce their own endocannabinoids and therefore we also have a whole system of endocannabinoid receptors throughout our bodies for our endocannabinoids to bind to. endocannabinoids appear to play a big role in regulating inflammation processes and when released, appear to have an anti-inflammatory effect. However, anxiety, disease, lifestyle, and other daily stressors can impair the function of our endocannabinoid systems which ultimately reduces our quality of life.
Fortunately, our endocannabinoid system recognizes and benefit from plant-based cannabinoids (phytocannabinoids) which influence the same receptors. We can hack the system!

What is CBD?
CBD is short for Cannabidiol and is one of the predominant compounds found in the cannabis sativa plant. Hemp is a type of cannabis. CBD is a type of pytocannabinoid that was discovered in 1940 and has been used by many-a-human for a wide range of things. If you just interview a handful of people you know, odds are at least one will cite an example of how CBD has changed their (or someone they love’s) life for the better. CBD is not the same as THC and does not get you high.
While studies are ongoing, CBD is thought to indirectly interact with our endocannabinoid system. For example, studies indicate that CBD prevents the breakdown of naturally occurring endocannabinoids (within our body) to enhance their effectiveness. In this way, CBD modulates our endocannabinoid system which can improve a wide variety of physiological issues.
