What is CBD?

Posted by Alisa Litster on

CBD, which stands for Cannabidiol, is one of the most well-known active compounds, found in hemp and cannabis plants. Mett Naturals CBD comes from the hemp plants we grow on our farm in Nyssa, Oregon. This compound (also known as a cannabinoid) works naturally with the body’s endocannabinoid system and other natural body systems to help regulate a variety of vital functions including sleep, mood, stress response and more.* CBD is not intoxicating, rather it is known to have positive impacts on the human body.

Why does CBD work so well with our bodies*?

The human body has an Endocannabinoid System (ECS) and produces its own cannabinoid compounds called Endocannabinoids.

There are endocannabinoids and endocannabinoid receptors throughout our body including the nervous system, organs, brain, and cells.* Endocannabinoids bind to the receptors to help support and protect our immune system, nervous system and virtually all organs in the body.*

The endocannabinoid receptors found throughout the body work with cannabinoids like CBD to help support the body’s natural state of balance.*

What are the effects of CBD?

When the body experiences internal or external stressors, the Endocannabinoid System is activated to help your body return to stability. Incorporating CBD into your daily routine helps boost the body’s natural creation and supply of endocannabinoids.

CBD is non-intoxicating, what this means is that you will not experience a “high”. The effects of CBD are individualized, and your Endocannabinoid System knows what your body needs at the time that you take it. If you find yourself having a hard time sleeping, CBD may make you tired, and during stressful moments, CBD may calm your mind. Because the effects can be subtle, focus on what you don’t feel rather than what you do. Overtime, you may notice you are sleeping better, or experiencing an improvement in mood.* It’s important to monitor how you’re feeling so you can better understand how much CBD is right for you.
