What is cannabidiol/CBD?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a naturally occurring compound found in the resinous flower of cannabis, a plant with a rich history as a medicine going back thousands of years. Today the therapeutic properties of CBD are being tested and confirmed by scientists and doctors around the world. A safe, non-addictive substance, CBD is one of more than a hundred “phytocannabinoids,” which are unique to cannabis and endow the plant with its robust therapeutic profile.
How does CBD work?
The magic of CBD lies fully in its relationship with the endocannabinoid system (often referred to as the ECS). The ECS is a collection of cell receptors located throughout the body- mainly in the brain and central nervous system, but also in the organs and connective tissues. The main task of the ECS is regulating homeostasis throughout the body, i.e. bringing the body to optimal balance. Because of the many areas in which the ECS receptors are located (and their ability to maintain homeostasis) the ECS is considered one of the most important systems in the body in regards to maintaining health.

We recommend starting with a small dosage and increasing as necessary.
