CBD is short for cannabidiol, a promising phytocannabinoid found in cannabis and/or agricultural hemp. CBD has been recognized for its benefits on human and animal health, capable of affecting nearly every biological process via the endocannabinoid system.
Since CBD is a phytocannabinoid that is non-psychotoxic, it will not get you high. CBD has a remarkable safety profile.
Also known as the ECS, the Endocannabinoid System refers endocannabinoids, the enzymes that regulate their production and degradation, as well as their receptors. Endocannabinoids are isolated from brain and peripheral tissues, communicating through cannabinoid receptors and serving as "messengers."
The Entourage Effect is the result from the synergistic interaction of the cannabinoids, flavonoids, terpenes, and fatty acids naturally found in cannabis. It refers to the beneficial effect of all these compounds working together, versus just one or two of those compounds working on their own.
In other words, the Entourage Effect is the benefit you get from using multiple components of the cannabis plant together, instead of using one component at a time.
Agricultural hemp is a more preferred choice over medical cannabis due to the low amounts of THC in agricultural hemp. This allows you to experience the benefits without the psychotoxic effects associated with medical cannabis.
