When introduced into the endocannabinoid system, CBD causes an increased release of 2-AG, one of the body’s endogenous cannabinoids. Anandamide is also released which may help the body relax. Anandamide is also known as the “Bliss” molecule. CBD and supporting adaptogenic herbs promotes a sense of calm and balance for body and mind by regulating daily stress and anxiety response.
CBD components bind to our brain receptors. This stimulates serotonin production which can lead to stress relief. Cannabidiol (CBD) is a compound derived from cannabis (a hemp plant also known as marijuana). However, unlike other compounds found in cannabis, such as THC, cannabidiol is not believed to be a psychoactive compound affecting perception, and behavior. Preliminary evidence suggests CBD may modestly reduce anxiety, certain measures of dystonia (a movement disorder), and glaucoma.
