Cannabinoids are compounds that interact with a receptor network in cellular tissues to promote health in the body. The human body internally generates its own cannabinoids known as "endocannabinoids" (endo=internal, Greek).
Together, endocannabinoids and their receptor network are known as the "endocannabinoid system." It regulates many essential bodily systems such as immune function, sleep, appetite, stress response, and pain regulation.
The hemp plant also naturally produces in excess of 100 known cannabinoids, known as "phytocannabinoids" (phyto=plant, Greek). Ironically, it produces its own cannabinoids to heal itself.
Phytocannabinoids are found in hemp; but also in other plants and herbal medicines. When consumed, phytocannabinoids act upon the body's cannabinoid receptor network to regulate the body’s health.
CBD is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid, yet it still exhibits a wealth of medicinal properties.
