Cannabidiol (CBD) is a naturally occurring compound found in the resinous flower of cannabis. CBD is one of more than a hundred “phytocannabinoids,” which are unique to cannabis and endow the plant with its robust therapeutic profile. Our body actually produces its own cannabinoids (called endocannabinoids). In infancy, our bodies source endocannabinoids from our mothers’ milk, to assist our underdeveloped ECS. Like all other bodily systems, our ECS grows less and less efficient as we age, and as the number of endocannabinoids our bodies synthesize decreases, our bodies slowly go out of balance. We become more prone to issues like insomnia or chronic anxiety as we become more cannabinoid-deficient. Reintroducing cannabinoids into our body in the form of phytocannabinoids (or plant-based cannabinoids) like THC or CBD could help our bodies regain their balance and general health.
