About CBD

What is CBD?

The acronym CBD refers to cannabidiol, one of the 100 plant compounds found in cannabis.

Unlike THC, which is associated with marijuana and its psychoactive effects, cannabidiol is a non-toxic compound that is not addictive or mind-altering. It has a wide therapeutic potential and is actively used in science and medicine: in the USA, highly effective CBD-based drugs are approved for the treatment of epilepsy and other diseases. The answer to the question of whether CBD is a drug and whether it can have euphoric effects is therefore no.

What is CBD and how does it work?

CBD products can be used for prevention and health maintenance due to their muscle relaxant, pain relieving and anti-inflammatory properties. The positive effects of CBD are attributed to its unique mechanism of influence on the endocannabinoid system. It is an internal, protective and regulatory system built into the human body.

The endocannabinoid system regulates homeostasis in the body and is responsible for our response to negative external factors.

When endocannabinoid deficiency occurs in the body, all of the human's internal systems become disrupted, resulting in headaches, irritable bowel syndrome, emotional depression and other clinical conditions.

ECS deficiency syndrome can be treated by supplementing with plant cannabinoids. This includes CBD, which acts on the receptors in the central and peripheral nervous systems in the same way as endogenous cannabinoids. Phytocannabinoids are a natural support for the ECS, helping it perform its functions when its natural resources are depleted: due to illness, under stress or physical exertion, or as a result of age-related changes.
