Yes, you have read correctly, the popular ingredient from the cannabis plant is also present naturally in your body. Humans produce our own cannabinoids, the endocannabinoids, and those that come from plants are called phytocannabinoids, such as cannabidiol (CBD), a cannabinoid found naturally in the cannabis plant. Unlike THC, which is also found in cannabis, CBD is not psychoactive.
Scientists have identified what they call the endocannibinoid system (ECS) which modulates the neuronal activity. This system plays an essential role in our nervous system and many physiological processes, pain, appetite, sleep, mood, digestion, inflammation and memory. Stress, lack of rest and our overall lifestyle can destabilize it. CBD can help you restore control and balance when this system is overloaded. Start with a low concentration (10%) and increase and consolidate its effects.
