Let's start with something simple and familiar to all of us:
What is Cannabis?
Cannabis sativa is a plant from the Himalayas, and has been cultivated by humans since prehistoric times for its numerous uses: the extraction of textile fiber or oil from its seeds, and above all, as a medicinal plant, as evidenced by records dating back to 2737 BC.
This plant produces different compounds among which the cannabinoids stand out. Cannabidiol, known by its acronym CBD. They are molecules that contain several therapeutic properties, among the most studied are its anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, analgesic, neuroprotective and anxiolytic effects .

Kalma CBD and your Endocannabinoid System
Have you heard of the endocannabinoid system?
The endocannabinoid system is a system of neurotransmitters fundamental to some of our metabolic processes.
Like Cannabis, humans produce their own cannabinoids, called endocannabinoids. Together they form the endocannabinoid system, which, although largely unknown, is an essential part in the proper functioning of the body, working as a cardiovascular modulator, immune modulator, regulator of food balance or neuroprotective.
This activation can cause physiological effects such as euphoria, hunger, pain reduction or muscle relaxation, among many others.
