Chances are you’ve been hearing of the health benefits and increasing popularity of CBD from friends, neighbors, or even headline news.

CBD, or Cannabidiol, is one of several natural plant compounds identified by researchers to benefit the human body. CBD is mainly extracted from the flowers, leaves, and stems of industrial hemp, which is a type of cannabis plant that is extremely low (<0.3%) in THC, the more commonly known cannabis plant compound that can cause a “high.” CBD has no known toxicity levels, does not cause a “high,” and has never been reported to cause injury or death in regular users.
Plant compounds were among humanity’s first curatives, and the benefits of the cannabis plant have been documented as early as 5,000 years ago in Chinese medicine. Today, CBD is being researched extensively in several health arenas. While no single compound cures everything, the benefits attributed to CBD can make it seem overhyped and, frankly, difficult to believe. The truth is that CBD is not a miracle substance or a cure-all but instead acts as a “cell signaler” to help restore the body’s own natural regulatory and healing abilities.
