We're so glad you asked! Hemp has been considered a healing plant for centuries, used to treat issues ranging from nausea to anxiety. Naturally occurring in hemp, CBD (cannabidiol) plays a significant role in supporting our total wellness.
In 1995, researchers discovered a whole new regulatory system in our bodies (think circulatory and digestive systems). Dubbed the endocannabinoid system, it is made up of a constellation of cannabinoids and cannabinoid receptors. Located throughout our bodies, these messengers and receptors help the other systems of our bodies communicate in order to maintain balance and function properly.
Sometimes the nutrients or chemicals that our bodies produce also exist elsewhere in nature—which is the case with cannabinoids! CBD is a cannabinoid that is found naturally in the hemp plant. When consumed, it supports all the functions that our endocannabinoid systems help regulate—including sleep, immunity, digestion, mood and memory. This support is especially important in the face of the stressors and demands of modern life.
