As a Holistic Health Practitioner and a long-time medical cannabis patient and cultivator, I have done a lot of research in the world of cannabis and how it works to bring the body into balance. In fact, I have an entire website dedicated to teaching about cannabinoids derived from hemp and what they do for the body. I have seen so many people's lives change for the better as a result of supplementing with CBD. I believe every wellness professional should have this powerful tool at their disposal.
What is CBD?
Cannabinoids are revolutionizing our approach to healing.
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a non-psychoactive compound found in the cannabis plant. Science continues to reveal the potent properties of cannabidiol and other phytocannabinoids, and has made some exciting discoveries.
In the early 90's medical researchers discovered that we have in our body an endocannabinoid system. Cannabinoid receptors are found throughout the nervous system and major organs, and are designed specifically for receiving cannabinoids (the compounds found in the cannabis plant). Our bodies also produce endogenous cannabinoids. The endocannabinoid system functions as a regulatory system supporting homeostasis. When our endocannabanoid system becomes deficient, a wide range of disorders can emerge. This explains why cannabinoids have been found to be helpful for such an array of conditions.
What are the benefits of phytocannabinoids?
Cannabinoids influence the endogenous cannabinoid system, which result in profound benefits for our body and mind.
