CBD for Active & Healthy Lifestyles

If you have been on Instragram lately, watched the news, or just up-to-date on current trends, then you have heard of CBD.  What is all this craze about, and should you try some?  The below article will walk through everything you need to know to make a decision for yourself on whether you try CBD or not.

What is CBD

CBD is a natural compound that is found in hemp. It is sometimes confused with THC. THC is the natural compound that gets you "high." CBD does not do this.  In fact, a hemp plant can either have high levels of THC or high levels of CBD, but not both.  It is an either/or situation. CBD works with the human body to restore body and brain functions through what is known as the endocannabinoid system. 

The endocannabinoid system is a series of receptors in the human body that help to regulate everything from our nervous system to our immune system. CBD works at the cellular level, and can rebuild damaged cells in the brain and body. As such, there are many proposed health benefits from CBD.

Health Benefits of CBD

There are so many health benefits of CBD because CBD works with just about all of our bodies’ natural systems. CBD works to restore balance to our nervous system, digestive system, muscular system, immune system, circulatory system, and also provides whole body relief in terms of cell growth and pain reduction.
