What are Cannabinoids?
Cannabinoids are active compounds produced by all hemp plants, and they are responsible for most of the benefits of cannabis. Cannabinoids found in plants are technically called phytocannabinoids (plant-based), while cannabinoids produced by the human body are called endocannabinoids. Cannabinoids directly interact with the body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS), which promotes balance, ie. homeostasis.
How does CBD work?
Cannabinoids are natural compounds that interact with receptors in our Endocannabinoid System (ECS). The ECS is crucial to regulating homeostasis, including sleep, inflammation, mood and more.
While we naturally produce cannabinoids, phytocannabinoids (plant-based CBD) enhance our ability to make more of our own endocannabinoids.
