WHAT IS CBD?
Before I share with you, the amazing attributes and uses of CBD infused topical pain relief cream, I’ll give you a crash course in CBD and what it is, just so you’re up to speed.
CBD, or Cannabidiol, is a cannabinoid found in Cannabis and Hemp plants. CBD binds It is not psychoactive so you will experience its benefits without that high feeling. If the CBD is derived from the Cannabis plant, it can have some THC present. When procuring CBD from the hemp plant you won’t find any THC. This is important if you you live in a state that does not allow legal THC consumption or if you get tested for any reason as THC can show up in tests.
The Endocannabinoid system is an intricate network of neurons that are spread out throughout our bodies. Within this system is a multitude of receptors. These receptors bind themselves to any cannabinoids and the chemical reaction that follows creates a series of positive responses in our bodies. Since the Endocannabinoid system can be found in all of our major body systems, this makes CBD and other cannabinoids function very well for us.
