WHAT IS CBD?
CBD is a successor to a cannabidiol compound named CBDA, cannabidiol is a cannabinoid. Cannabinoids are naturally occurring compounds found in numerous different plants. Scientific studies suggest that cannabidiol may hold a wide variety of potential benefits. There are several plants other than hemp that contain cannabinoids. CBDA is the second most abundant compound found in hemp in the form of a cannabinoid. Making up around 40 percent of the plants extract. CBDA is the acidic precursor to CBD. As hemp grows it does not produce CBD it produces a cannabinoid known as CBDA. CBDA in itself is considered to be an inactive compound. CBD only becomes available after a process is performed known as decarboxylation. Decarboxylation is the process of heating plant material above a certain temperature to alter the compound CBDA into CBD. CBD then becomes active and available to access the beneficial properties. CBD is one of over 100 cannabinoids detected with more being found frequently. CBD has been found to affect the Endocannabinoid system of all living mammals including humans.

CBD can be take in many ways, such as topical’s (applied and absorbed into the skin) oils and tinctures (taken sublingual under the tongue ) consumed in edibles ( food and drinks ) inhaled through smoking or vaping.

WHAT IS AN ENDOCANNABINOID SYSTEM?
It is a biological system composed of endogenous lipid based retrograde neurotransmitters that bind to cannabinoid receptors and cannabinoid receptor proteins found within any living mammal’s central nervous system and peripheral nervous system capable of interacting with cannabinoids such as CBD. There are two major cannabinoid receptors that have been discovered CB1 and CB2 receptors. Both receptors can be found throughout the human body. There is also two major Endocannabinoids that are produced naturally by our bodies Anandamide and 2-AG. These two compounds are created by the body on a as needed basis and are not stored for later use.
