In recent years, you have probably started to notice the explosion of products containing CBD and people touting its benefits. There are CBD oils and tinctures, dermal patches, dog and cat foods, beauty products…the list goes on. With all this publicity, it’s natural to wonder what CBD is, whether it’s safe, how to apply/ingest CBD products and how those products interact with your body to produce the reported wellness benefits. The team at CBDistillery™ put together this quick overview for the Silvernest audience.
What is CBD?
Cannabidiol, or CBD, is a molecule primarily extracted from hemp plants. It is non-intoxicating and non-addictive, and it can be applied or ingested in a variety of ways including topical applications and pills or capsules.
CBD interacts with your body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS), which regulates crucial bodily functions such as immune response, pain perception, inflammation, emotions, memory and more. When these systems are out of balance, you may experience pain, swelling, mood swings, poor sleep quality and other negative impacts. CBD works by binding with the neural receptors in your ECS to help restore balance and reduce these symptoms.
