In addition to the digestive, circulatory, and nervous systems, the ones we all learned about in school, there’s another system — the endocannabinoid system (ECS). It works in conjunction with compounds in cannabis (both hemp and marijuana) to help the body stay in balance.
Sometimes referred to as hemp, cannabidiol (CBD) is one of over 100 cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant — accounting for about 40% of its extract. Trending as a natural solution for health complaints like inflammation, pain, nervousness, and poor sleep — CBD is popping up in stores around the world in the form of oils, tinctures, gummies, supplement pills, topical creams, and more.

Looking back, it's easy to see why CBD was one of 2019's biggest wellness trends. The compound is safe, effective, and all-natural. CBD grants new users an easy entrance into plant medicine, which in turn often leads to a healthier, more vibrant life.
