I would consider CBD to be “all the rage” when it comes to new supplements. It is the most asked-for, and asked-about product when people come to me at the Nutrifarmacy. CBD became legal in 2014.
What are Endocannabinoids?
So what are endocannabinoids? Our body naturally produces cannabinoids. The endocannabinoid system works using a variety of receptors in the body. Think of receptors like a lock, and the cannabinoids like the key. The human brain (and the rest of the body) is saturated with these receptors. Too many stressors (environmental, microbial, altered sleep patterns etc.) increase inflammation within our body which effects our endocannabinoid (endo meaning within) system. CBD is what I would consider an “exo”cannabinoid (from outside) our body.
