That is an abbreviation of Cannabidiol. This is a naturally occurring cannabinoid component of Cannabis. This ingredient is most known for its healing properties without the patient feeling impaired. This is only 1 of 120 known cannabinoids and some experts believe there are many more to be discovered.

Why are Cannabinoids Special?

The Human body has a neurotransmitter network known as the Endogenous Cannabinoid System (ECS). The body naturally produces endocannabinoids (endo meaning internal; within) to achieve homeostasis (meaning tendency toward a relatively stable equilibrium despite external or internal changes to the environment).

To simplify, the ECS is designed to keep the body in balance. The cannabinoids (CB’s) found in the plant are known as phytocannabinoids. The ECS is able to use the communication coming from the phytocannabinoids and produce endocannabinoids which help the body to produce the desired healing effects.
