The Science of CBD Part 1 - CBD, Science & Your Body

What is CBD? How does CBD work with the body? What are cannabinoids and endocannabinoids? And what do researchers have to say about how CBD works?

In recent years, cannabidiol — otherwise known as CBD — has made big news. Millions of children, adults, and pets have tried using hemp-based CBD, and researchers are just as excited as consumers; hundreds of studies have shown the positive ways that CBD influences our health. 

Even though researchers have documented more than 100 cannabis compounds, called cannabinoids, there’s still a lot to learn about how cannabis interacts with our bodies. Ironically, the research is difficult because cannabinoids are so important — they work with multiple body systems and have complex, interrelated effects. We do, however, know that the body is hardwired for cannabinoids and that they’re critical to our health.
