CBD stands for cannabidiol, which is one of over 100 naturally occuring compounds called cannabinoids that are found in cannabis plants.
CBD has been used for several conditions such as chronic pain and inflammation, anxiety and insomnia, exercise induced inflammation, heart ailments, and much more. The human body has an endocannabinoid system which helps regulate pain, sleep, appetite, and the immune system. The body recognizes CBD just like the naturally produced endocannabinoids to produce these effects.
