What is CBD?Updated 7 months ago
CBD or cannabidiol is a phytocannabinoid produced by the Cannabis sativa L plant. This means that unlike the endocannabinoids synthesized inside of our body, CBD is found in hemp. Regarded for its various benefits, CBD interacts with our body’s endocannabinoid system. Research suggests that the major pathway for CBD’s actions is the inhibition of the breakdown of the endocannabinoid anandamide, just one of many endocannabinoids produced by our bodies and potentially impacted by CBD use.
