It's likely that this is not the first time you have heard about CBD. CBD [short for Cannabidiol] has become one of the fastest-growing ingredient markets in the US, and it continues to rapidly grow as more research is released about its therapeutic benefits.
The global CBD market size was valued at USD 2.8 billion in 2020 and is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate of 21.2% from 2021 to 2028. Due to its growing reputation for a range of therapeutic benefits, the demand for CBD for health and wellness purposes is high, which is the major factor driving the market growth. In addition, the rising acceptance and use of products due to anticipated regulatory approvals is another important factor expected to boost growth for CBD-infused products.
First things first, what is CBD?
CBD is a naturally occurring compound found in the industrial hemp plant and is one of many cannabinoids, in general. It is considered a safe, non-addictive and non-psychoactive ingredient that is being consumed for a range of therapeutic benefits.
How does CBD work in your body?
In order to understand CBD, we have to understand the Endocannabinoid System (ECS). Our ECS helps regulate the body and keep it in peak homeostasis. In other words, our ECS keeps our internal systems in harmony. One of the main ways to keep the ECS in balance is to introduce and keep a consistent supply of compounds called cannabinoids (CBD being the most well-known cannabinoid) in our bodies.
CBD naturally binds to receptors in our ECS which are found all over our bodies. This is the reason why CBD may be beneficial in supporting the body's natural responses to stress, anxiety, memory, appetite, sleep, and pain signaling.
Are there safe CBD products?
Health in Harmony launched Everyday ECS Balance Softgels to address this exact question. In a saturated market with thousands of brands, we understand it's difficult to know the good from the bad.

CBD vs THC - What's the difference?
Let’s get a common question addressed; CBD is very different from THC. CBD does NOT give you psychoactive effects OR get you ‘high.' Yes, CBD and THC are both phytocannabinoids (cannabinoids from plants), but each is very different from one another.
Think back to when you made a family tree in elementary school. When you think of CBD, THC, and all the phytocannabinoids present in plants, remember they are derived from one main source, but are different and unique in their own way. Just like you and your cousin; you are related to one another yet are completely different in genetic makeup.
Let's bring it all together.
- CBD is its own entity.
- CBD is not THC.
- CBD does not get you high.
- CBD can offer you amazing benefits if you find a trusted brand like Health in Harmony.
