The curiosity about three little letters is creating such a buzz throughout society. C, B, D has the world going crazy as if it was the ending of 1999 and the beginning of the 2000’s era but studies are showing, it’s for good reasoning. CBD has been around for many centuries and have a rich history in supporting America in its need for certain hemp made items, especially during World War II when the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor shut off foreign supplies of hemp fiber which caused the United States to push farmers to grow hemp, despite its restrictions. Although humans have utilized the Hemp plant for years, due to propaganda, a stigma was placed on Hemp which caused society to frown upon its usage because of its relation to THC, which is a known cousin to CBD.

What is CBD?

Before explaining what CBD is, a clear illustration will define CBD clearly. Look at CBD as an engine cleaner use to remove all the junk from inside the engine to improve its optimization and functionality. That's exactly the function of CBD when entering the endocannabinoid system. Cannabidiol, best known to society as CBD is a chemical compound out of 100 derived from the Hemp plant.CBD, just like its cousin, THC are two of the most prevalent and most studied compounds in the hemp plant. Although CBD and THC come from the same plant, CBD is found in higher concentration in the hemp plant while THC has higher concentration in cannabis.

While society may associate CBD with THC because its origins are from the same plant, the one big difference between the two is the ability of “non-intoxication" and “intoxication”, meaning CBD doesn’t give off a “high” feeling you would get from THC. Today, you will be able to find and purchase CBD almost anywhere and in your everyday products such as CBD oil tinctures, CBD beauty products, CBD dog products and even CBD food products and many more.

How does CBD works?

We understand that explaining a topic can be confusing to some so given analogies can simplify and make an explanation much more comprehensive.Imagine having a dim fire and the only way to increase its flame is to add a compound that would ignite its ability to perform at its peak level. That’s essentially what CBD does as it enters the body. It acts as a flame to ignite your endocannabinoid system to bring it to its balance, homeostasis level.When you ingest CBD, the CBD binds to certain receptors called CB1 and CB2 receptors.CB1 receptors are found all throughout the brain and spinal cord, along with other small tissues. CB2 receptors are primarily found in the immune system. Just as a fire can’t rise without fuel to ignite its flame, without these receptors, CBD would prove to be nearly useless.
