CBD is cannabidiol, a naturally occurring chemical compound found mainly in the Cannabis sativa plant. CBD has been shown to interact with the human endocannabinoid system, or internal cannabinoid system. The cannabis plant produces chemicals that are structurally similar to some of the chemicals specifically made by the human body. CBD and other cannabinoids act as a “key,” and fit into a “lock,” or receptor site, on the surface of our cells. The endocannabinoid system is part of your body’s self regulating system which helps keep the body in balance, also known as homeostasis.
