What is CBD?Updated 5 months ago

Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of several different natural chemical components known as cannabinoids derived from the Cannabis plant. CBD is a natural, safe, non-addictive substance that has proved to support a multitude of therapeutic needs for both the mind and body. It does this by interacting with the endocannabinoid system (ECS), a collection of cell receptors and molecules responsible for maintaining our physiological and biochemical balance. CBD influences this balance to regulate natural homeostasis.

Different types of cannabinoids can help with memory, mood, workout recovery, appetite, and sleep. Need help finding which product is right for you? Take our quiz here!
