- What is CBD?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of over 100 known phytocannabinoids, which are plant compounds. Phytocannabinoids work by acting on the body’s own endogenous (aka internal) cannabinoid system, called the endocannabinoid system. The endocannabinoid system includes a network of cannabinoid receptors in cells throughout our body. This network responds to both cannabinoids that our body naturally produces and phytocannabinoids that we consume.
