CANNABINOIDS, PHYTOCANNABINOIDS, ENDOCANNABINOIDS
CBD is one of many cannabinoids, a group of naturally occurring chemical compounds present in animals and the plant genus, cannabis, which includes both hemp and cannabis.
The prefix phyto means plant. Phytocannabinoids are cannabinoids derived from plants. Endocannabinoids are derived from within animals, including humans. When there is an endocannabinoid deficiency it is appropriate to consume phytocannabinoids to address the deficiency.
The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a biochemical communication system that regulates the peripheral and central nervous system (including the brain), immunological system, organs, and vital physiological functions. It promotes homeostasis, ensuring the major systems of the body work synergistically. When there is a deficiency of endocannabinoid production, the ECS’s multiple receptors utilize the addition of phytocannabinoids to help create calm, balance and ease and provide support for relaxing, repairing or restoring. The naturally occurring compounds in hemp are important for the overall health of humans, as well as dogs, cats, horses and all animals.
Contrary to common belief, CBD has been researched for more than 50 years by some of the most well respected scientists in the world.
