What is National CBD Month?
January 2021 marks the first-ever National CBD Month. National CBD Month was founded to raise awareness, provide education, and bust myths about CBD, its history, its benefits, and its uses. So what exactly is CBD? CBD stands for cannabidiol, a naturally occurring compound found in the cannabis plant that won’t give the consumer any psychoactive effects.
CBD has helped millions of people (and even pets!) live their best pain-free life while helping them manage their anxiety and stress. CBD has many benefits but here are just a few:
- Relieve stress, anxiety, and depression
- Ease pain and aches
- Has anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties
- Provides a natural way to relieve stress, anxiety, and pain
- Neuroprotective properties
Did you know that our bodies have a natural system that is built to interact with cannabinoids? It’s called the endocannabinoid system (ECS). Via cannabinoid receptors, the ECS activates when the body is not currently in homeostasis, the optimal functioning of the body, and works to correct the problem. Through those receptors, the ECS helps regulate a lot of important functions, such as digestion, immune function, temperature regulation, memory, and more. CBD stimulates the activity of the ECS and therefore can work as a treatment for various illnesses.
