What is CBD?
CBD, short for cannabidiol, is a compound found naturally in hemp plants with a number of proven health benefits. Not to be confused with THC, a psychoactive cannabinoid which is also found in hemp and other cannabis plants, CBD doesn’t have a strong impact on cognitive brain activity and therefore will not cause a “high” feeling in those who use it.
You might be wondering, “if CBD won’t get you high, why do people use it?” The answer is different depending on who you ask, but the majority of people who use CBD products do so for the wide-range of health benefits that it offers.
CBD and Your Endocannabinoid System
Our body’s ability to absorb and utilize cannabinoids is thanks to a complex biological system known as the endocannabinoid system, or ECS for short. The ECS is vital for maintaining homeostasis, your body’s effort to maintain internal stability and compensate for environmental changes (one example of this is the regulation of our internal body temperature). The ECS is comprised of three key components:
- Cannabinoid receptors are found on the surface of the cells in your body and transmit information about the condition of the cell
- Endocannabinoids are molecules that bind to cannabinoid receptors in the ECS and are made inside of your body
- Enzymes that break down and degrade endocannabinoids
When the cannabinoid receptors in your ECS notice that the internal conditions of a cell are different than they’re supposed to be, endocannabinoids are sent to the receptors and broken down by enzymes to bring the cell back to homeostasis. Without the ECS, your body would not be able to regulate its internal conditions leading to a myriad of medical problems. The ECS is also directly related to anti-inflammatory response regulation, your immune system, appetite, mood, and several other crucial bodily functions.
Full Spectrum Hemp Extract
Everyone has an ECS and is capable of producing endocannabinoids in their body, but there are certain types of cannabinoids which we can’t produce ourselves and are only produced by plants – these are called phytocannabinoids. CBD is one of the more than 100 phytocannabinoids found in hemp but has become the most well-known thanks to its health benefits and non-intoxicating nature.
While CBD is great on its own, Hempfrog’s full spectrum hemp extract contains more than 80 other cannabinoids found naturally in our North Carolina grown hemp plants. By utilizing the entire hemp plant in our products, Hempfrog is able to deliver a full spectrum CBD oil that’s packed with health benefits.
