What is CBD?
CBD is a chemical found in Cannabis. It does not contain tetrahydrocannabinol or THC, the ingredient in marijuana that produces a high. Rather, it is often used to reduce stress and anxiety and calm the body, and for the many CBD benefits.
CBD comes in many different forms. You can use it in oil, creams, capsules, gummies, or as a vapor. Some forms of CBD are more bioavailable than others. This means that they are more easily absorbed by your body. When looking for a CBD product, be sure to look for full-spectrum or broad-spectrum products instead of isolate or distillate. This will give you more of the CBD benefits.
CBD is used for a variety of reasons. When consumed or applied topically, CBD interacts with neuroreceptors in your endocannabinoid system, which sends signals between your cells to help regulate your movement, mood, homeostasis, and immune system.
