CBD refers to the molecule Cannabidiol. CBD is just one of hundreds of compounds called cannabinoids which are found in Hemp. In all of our bodies is a system known as the Endocannabinoid system (ECS), which is responsible for a number of physiological and cognitive processes. Research has found that CBD seems to inhibit an enzyme responsible for breaking down a key endocannabinoid, known as anandamide. By introducing CBD into the body, anandamide stays around for longer in the body before being metabolised. Therefore, a regular intake of CBD can support and boost our endocannabinoid system to function optimally.
