CBD is cannabidiol, a cannabinoid free from side effects but packed full of healing abilities. THC is also nature’s incredible healer, but in different ways.

THC copies an endocannabinoid called anandamide, which activates the CB1 receptors, found mainly in the brain – therefore instilling a sense of euphoria and increased appetite.  CBD prevents THC from binding with receptor CB1 – which shows when it mitigates the high THC would cause and it reduces the anxiety THC would cause. THC is illegal in most parts of the world because […]
