Cannabinoids are naturally occurring chemical compounds found in abundance in the cannabis plant. These compounds act on cannabinoid receptor cells throughout the endocannabinoid system to insight various responses.

What is the endocannabinoid system?

The endocannabinoid system is a system in the body that contains receptors (such as CB-1 and CB-2 receptors) made to interact with cannabinoids. These natural cannabinoids and their receptors exist in virtually every cell and organ system in the human body. This system has been shown to help regulate appetite, sleep cycles, pain, inflammation response, mood, memory and more. When there is a deficiency in the endocannabinoid system, your systems may be thrown out of balance. CBD is a 100% natural way to correct these chemical deficiencies restoring the system back to a state of health and homeostasis.
