Frequently Asked Questions
Both CBD (Cannabidiol) and THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) are members of the chemical family called cannabinoids, and they are the two most common chemical compounds found in the Cannabis plant. THC produces psychoactive effects by binding to the naturally occurring CB-1 receptors in the central nervous system. CBD binds to CB-2 receptors in cell and body tissues outside of the central nervous system and, as a result, does not produce intoxicating effects.
CBD oil works because CBD is a special type of compound called a cannabinoid. Cannabinoids interact with a unique system of cannabinoid receptors in your body called the endocannabinoid system (ECS). The ECS is connected to your body’s sense of homeostasis, or balance in its natural rhythms. Supporting your ECS may lead to better overall well-being.
Studies show the ECS plays a role in many important bodily functions. These functions include playing a part in your anti-inflammatory response, immune system, appetite levels, mood, anxiety, routine and more. The ECS helps keep your body in homeostasis.
