Cannabidiol (CBD)

Learn about the benefits and what the heck is CBD.



Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of 113 naturally occurring cannabinoids found in the hemp plant. It does not have the intoxicating effect that THC has, but rather calming and more medicinal effects. CBD has been known to help patients with symptoms such as inflammation, pain, anxiety, psychosis, muscle spasms, seizures, arthritis, diabetes, multiple sclerosis, schizophrenia, depression, epilepsy, PTSD, infections, cancer, and more. 

The body has what is called an endocannabinoid system. This endocannabinoid system helps keep the bodies biochemistry in check, and promotes homeostasis. Homeostasis is the state of steady internal conditions needed to the keep the body at an equilibrium state for optimal function. 

Homeostasis is important to keep inside the body. Aliments such as cancer throw off the body homeostasis. Supplementing with CBD can help bring the body back to normal. When the body is out of homeostasis, the endocannabinoid system is lacking cannabinoids. The body naturally produces cannabinoids, but when suffering from aliments the body does not produce enough to maintain homeostasis. Supplementing with cannabinoids such as CBD can help the body get back to normal by replenishing the lack of cannabinoids produced by the body.
