CBD, short for cannabidiol, is one of the many cannabinoids found in all varieties of Cannabis plants. Beyond finding cannabinoids in Cannabis, many other plants contain cannabinoids including black pepper, cacao (yes, chocolate) and flaxseed.
Cannabinoids may interact with the Endocannabinoid System found in the human body. The Endocannabinoid System is known to regulate a number of systems in the body that modulate sleep, cognition, appetite, pain, and immune responses.
Hemp naturally has a high level of CBD and extremely low levels of THC (the psychoactive compound that intoxicates people). This makes hemp an excellent source of Cannabinoids. The CBD oil used in all of CBD Houston’s products is sourced exclusively from hemp.
