What is CBD?

CBD is the abbreviation of cannabidiol and is an extremely important component that can be found in cannabis in both hemp and cannabis plants. However, CBD does not allow the user to experience any stoned or high feeling. The fact that cannabidiol cannot cause a psychoactive effect is a very big advantage for many people. All daily activities can be continued without problems.


In addition to CBD and THC, there are at least 100 other active cannabinoids found in cannabis plants. All these plant cannabinoids are called phytocannabinoids. The unique thing about phytocannabinoids is that they have the same properties as certain substances that are naturally found in our body, the so-called endocannabinoids.


Substances such as the well-known THC and the increasingly popular CBD, imitate these endogenous substances.


CBD is an active cannabinoid because these plant (phytogenic) cannabinoids are, as it were, copies of our own (endogenous) cannabinoids, they fit like keys on specific receptors (receivers on cells) in our body, to which only body's own substances normally bind. So, just like endocannabinoids, they can influence certain biological processes or functions in our body.
