What is CBD?

Written by: Jayci DeVito

You may have preconceived notions and questions about what CBD is and how it works. We hope that through science, we will be able to establish real facts and dispel any myths you might have heard, in turn, giving you the peace of mind you deserve and further resolving all doubts.

First of all, what is CBD? Cannabidiol is derived from the hemp plant, and is used commonly to help ease inflammation, overcome sleep disorders and anxiety, relieve chronic pain and many symptoms of PTSD, and even reduce seizures. It is a natural remedy that works by interacting with the endocannabinoids and receptors found in the brain, organs, glands, and other areas in the body. CBD absolutely does not induce a “high” feeling, but users may notice a very subtle sense of peace and relaxation.

Zo CBD also incorporates the hemp-derived compounds CBC and CBN, along with terpenes and flavonoids specifically formulated for the best efficacy. CBC and CBN (cannabichromene and cannabinol) have been proven in studies to reduce pain and inflammation, provide mild analgesic effects, and help people to fall asleep and stay asleep through the night. CBD has been shown to have a stronger desired impact when combined with these two cannabinoids.

How does CBD work? CBD acts as a modifier to the CB1 and CB2 receptors throughout the human body, helping those receptors fight off inflammation and reduce painful swelling. It also triggers serotonin receptors in the brain to produce more cortisol, bringing relief for stress and anxiety, allowing you to relax. Study results suggest that CBD’s effect on the release of cortisol possibly acts as a mild sedative helping you to fall asleep. Your endocannabinoid system is directly impacted by CBD, which has demonstrated ability to help regulate sleep patterns, keeping you asleep longer.

Overall, CBD is a proven-safe, completely natural alternative to lots of different pills and therapies that could have potentially harmful or addictive side-effects. The positive benefits of CBD greatly outweigh any negative connotations, and the wide array of ecstatic and grateful customer reviews rightfully nullify any misconceptions. CBD is plant-derived medicine, and can help provide a pleasant reprieve to those who have suffered and struggled to find relief.
