CBD made simple
CBD stands for cannabidiol, a natural and non-psychoactive compound found in the Cannabis sativa L. plant, also known as the hemp plant.
Taking CBD is thought to activate the cannabinoid receptors in your body's endocannabinoid system. When these receptors are activated, they may contribute positively to your overall well being due to their involvement in pain, anxiety and mood regulation. Tincture oils are one of the most effective ways to take CBD as it's more easily absorbed by your body.
These days CBD can be found in everything from oils, capsules and topicals, to teas, gummies and skincare. Although not all products contain the same concentrations or levels of purity, so it's important so sort the claims from the facts.
