CBD stands for cannabidiol, which is a naturally occurring compound found in the cannabis plant. Unlike THC, another well-known compound found in cannabis, CBD is not psychoactive and does not produce a "high" sensation.
CBD works by interacting with the body's endocannabinoid system, which is responsible for regulating a variety of bodily functions such as sleep, appetite, pain, and immune system response. CBD can bind to various receptors in the endocannabinoid system, which can help to reduce inflammation, relieve pain, and promote a sense of relaxation and calmness.
Research has shown that CBD may have potential therapeutic benefits for a variety of conditions, including anxiety, depression, chronic pain, epilepsy, and more. However, more research is needed to fully understand how CBD works and its potential benefits.
