What Exactly Is CBD?

You’ve no doubt been hearing a lot about CBD recently and at MGC
Nutraceuticals we wholeheartedly believe in making informed choices and walking an intentional path towards wellbeing - so, what exactly is CBD?

CBD is a natural compound derived from the hemp plant. The myriad active derivatives from hemp are together collectively called cannabinoids and one of them, Cannabidiol, or CBD, is rather special. Working with the body’s natural systems and receptors, the effects of CBD have been studied in a wide range of areas. Unlike other cannabinoids, though, CBD delivers no psychoactive effect (it’s entirely non-intoxicating) - this makes it particularly suitable for physiological use.

The Endocannabinoid System

The discovery of the Endocannabinoid System by Israeli researchers in the 1990s brought to light an entire system within the body which had, until then, remained undiscovered. The function of the Endocannabinoid System is to maintain normal physiological functions within the body. Receptors in the brain and nervous system respond to natural endocannabinoids in the body - these receptors respond equally well to CBD and a host of other other cannabinoids found in hemp. This relationship between the body and the natural world is what makes CBD such an exciting area of exploration for both scientists and those of us who aim to live more mindfully.

Hemp: Natural Nourishment

Hemp has been used and treasured by societies across the globe for thousands of years. It’s useful in a huge number of ways; in fact the entire plant is used in some way or another to benefit mankind. Its fibers make products as strong as rope and as delicate as paper and its seeds are highly nutritious and produce hemp oil. Hemp seeds and oil are able to boast of being some of the richest sources of plant-based proteins - meaning if you’re exploring veganism or just intending to cut back on animal produce you’ll want to make hemp-based
products a part of your regimen.

Reaching Your Goals

We all have goals in life; some major, some minor, some that are easy to achieve, some that are real moon-shots! Whether your aim is to eat cleaner, to increase the quality of your sleep, to lose weight, to gain muscle, to gain new skills or lose your inhibitions the keys to achieving your goals are honesty and consistency. We’re not all perfect - far from it! So the first step towards building a
successful path is to be honest about what’s important to you. If your time is your most valuable commodity then it’s perfectly fine to use hacks, cheats and tools to make as little an impact on your schedule as possible particularly if doing so increases your feelings of anxiety. If you’re the kind of person who’s motivated by positive feedback you’ll want an approach that can deliver something early on that will keep you motivated. The real trick is to ake what you’re doing, whatever your goal, sustainable and consistent. By being honest with yourself and taking advantage of the right tools you make this a lot easier!
