What is Cannabidiol (CBD)?
Cannabidiol is one of the dozens of non-psychoactive cannabinoids found in the hemp plant (Cannabis). ION's CBD formula consists of cannabidiol, which is the main non-psychoactive cannabinoid that binds to the receptors in your immune system. CBD was originally patented by the United States Government in 2003 as a neuroprotectant and antioxidant.
THE BENEFITS OF CANNABIDIOL (CBD):
The health benefits of CBD are well established. The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a group of endogenous cannabinoid receptors located in the brain and throughout the central and peripheral nervous systems. CBD specifically interacts with the CB1 and CB2 receptors that send signals to wake up and strengthen the immune system naturally. CB1 receptors are found in the brain, lungs, vascular system, muscles, gastrointestinal tract, reproductive organs, immune system, liver bone marrow, and pancreas. CB2 receptors are found in the spleen, bones, skin, immune system, liver, bone marrow, and pancreas.
Our endocannabinoid system is intricately linked to our nervous, immune, and digestive systems and brain. High-quality CBD is an effective form of nourishment to our endocannabinoid system.
Most CBD sold is an isolate of just CBD and none of the other cannabinoids. Ion CBD tinctures and pain gel are Full Spectrum and contain a host of cannabinoids including trace amounts of THC.
