CBD is the main phytocannabinoid found in hemp. Once in our body, CBD interacts with the CB1 and CB2 cannabinoid receptors found in the brain and nervous system, which in turn are part of our immune system. These receptors are part of the endocannabinoid system, which is responsible for homeostasis - the body's ability to maintain internal balance under the influence of external factors. The endocannabinoid system is important for many basic functions of the human body such as appetite, immune function, nutritional metabolism, pain, sleep, memory, mood, digestion, response to inflammation, and more. By interacting with the endocannabinoid system, CBD stimulates the production of our body's own natural cannabinoids. In addition, CBD increases the permeability of nerve impulses, stimulates the immune system, inhibits inflammation, has a general calming effect on the psyche, and many other positive effects.
