What is CBD?

All iCBD tinctures contain CBD, or “cannabidiol”, which is a special compound that interacts with your body’s unique Endocannabinoid System (ECS). This system, which was only recently discovered in the 1990’s, is made up of a series of native receptors that promote homeostasis within humans and animals. According to UCLA Health, “We now know the endocannabinoid system is involved in a wide variety of processes, including pain, memory, mood, appetite, stress, sleep, metabolism, immune function, and reproductive function. Endocannabinoids, such as CBD, are arguably one of the most widespread and versatile signaling molecules known to man.” CBD is primarily found in the flowers and leaves of hemp plants, and we at iCBD ensure our CBD is extracted from the highest-quality sourced hemp available.

Although cannabinoids may sound like a complicated new term and concept; similar compounds can be found in everyday food and ingredients such as chocolate, rosemary, black pepper, and other herbs. These plant-derived compounds include antioxidants and provide incredible benefits, just like CBD.
