What is CBD?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of the many different compounds, known as cannabinoids, found in the cannabis plant. Cannabinoids are unique because they act on cannabinoid receptors that are part of the endocannabinoid system found throughout the body.
Every being with a spine has receptors to activate and bind with cannabis! That means great for the whole family. And its the only plant in the world that can CLOTHE US, FEED US, HOUSE US and HEAL US!
Medical research shows us that CBD partnered with other cannabanoids found in the plant can offer incredible relief to symptoms associated with many ailments. The FDA has recently approved CBD in epileptic medicines and have many clinical trials, studies and patents.
