Before we start we want to explain a little bit about what CBD is and how it works........

What is CBD

CBD, short for cannabidiol, is an active compound found in the cannabis sativa plant. It's a naturally occurring substance and can impart a feeling of relaxation and calm.

How does CBD work?

The human body has an active endocannabinoid system (ECS) with receptors. Its main receptors, CB1 and CB2, run throughout our bodies and studies have shown that they are instrumental to the body running smoothly. CB1 receptors are found particularly in the brain and co-ordinate emotions, mood, thinking and memories. CB2 receptors are common in the immune system and affect inflammation and pain.

Our body produces cannabinoids naturally for this system but sometimes doesn’t produce enough and CBD has been shown to be helpful in balancing this. CBD can provide the body with additional cannabinoids to assist the ECS with maintaining the body’s harmony.
