What is CBD?
A non-psychoactive compound found in the cannabis sativa plant. CBD is an abbreviation for cannabidiol. All mammals, humans, horses, pets (dogs and cats) naturally produce CBD. All mammals have an endocannabinoid system (ECS). ECS is involved in a variety of physiological processes, including regulating pain an inflammation, cardiovascular and digestive health, cognitive and memory functions, immunity and more. With diseases, injuries and age, the body doesn’t produce enough cannabinoids to keep the ECS running efficiently. This endocannabinoid deficiency can lead to even more health issues and ailments. CBD and other related plant cannabinoids are the only compounds found in the natural world that work with mammalian cannabinoid receptors.
