Phytocannabinoids are revolutionizing our approach to healing.
Cannabidiol is a non-psychoactive compound found in the cannabis plant. Science continues to reveal the potent properties of cannabidiol and other phytocannabinoids, and has made some exciting discoveries.
In the early 90's medical researchers discovered that we have in our body an endocannabinoid system. Cannabinoid receptors are found throughout the nervous system and major organs, and are designed specifically for receiving cannabinoids (the compounds found in the cannabis plant). Our bodies also produce endogenous cannabinoids. The endocannabinoid system functions as a regulatory system supporting homeostasis. When our endocannabanoid system becomes deficient, a wide range of disorders can emerge. This explains why cannabinoids have been found to be helpful for such an array of conditions.
What are the benefits of phytocannabinoids?
