What is CBD?
CBD, by now you’ve probably heard of it, seen it or even used it in various products. There’s no denying this ingredient is taking the wellness world by storm, but what exactly is it?
Cannabidiol, or CBD, is extracted as an oil from the non-psychoactive part of the cannabis/hemp plant. As a THC free part of the plant, it works as an anti-inflammatory on the body without giving users any sort of ‘high’. Even though cannabis is one of the oldest and most natural forms of pain relief, it’s just now beginning to make its mark on our modern marketplace. Commonly formulated as an oil, salve, or tincture it can reduce pain, insomnia, anxiety and much more.
Stress, pain and inflammation are all linked together and co-exist in the body. With its anti-inflammatory properties, CBD relieves a variety of issues and works as a do-it-all muscle relaxer, mood booster and pain reliever.
