Understanding CBD

What is CBD?


Cannabidiol (CBD) is a naturally occurring compound found in the resinous flower of cannabis, a plant with a rich history as a medicine going back thousands of years. Today the therapeutic properties of CBD are being tested and confirmed by scientists and doctors around the world. A safe, non-addictive substance, CBD is one of more than a hundred “phytocannabinoids,” which are unique to cannabis and endow the plant with its robust therapeutic profile. Unlike THC, CBD does not make a person feel “stoned” or intoxicated. That’s because CBD and THC act in different ways on different receptors in the brain and body. CBD can actually lessen or neutralize the psychoactive effects of THC, depending on how much of each compound is consumed. Many people want the health benefits of cannabis without the high – or with less of a high. The fact that CBD is therapeutically potent as well as non-intoxicating, and easy to take as a CBD oil, makes it an appealing treatment option for those who are cautious about trying cannabis for the first time.




What are the CBD benefits?


Extensive scientific research – much of it sponsored by the U.S. government – and mounting anecdotal accounts from patients and physicians highlight CBD’s potential as a treatment for a wide range of maladies, including (but not limited to): Autoimmune diseases (inflammation, rheumatoid arthritis). Neurological conditions (Alzheimer’s, dementia, Parkinson’s, multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, Huntington’s chorea, stroke, traumatic brain injury). Metabolic syndrome (diabetes, obesity). Neuropsychiatric illness (autism, ADHD, PTSD, alcoholism). Gut disorders (colitis, Crohn’s). Cardiovascular dysfunction (atherosclerosis, arrhythmia). Skin disease (acne, dermatitis, psoriasis). CBD has proven neuroprotective effects and its anti-cancer properties are being investigated at several academic research centers in the United States and elsewhere. A 2010 brain cancer study by California scientists found that CBD “enhances the inhibitory effects of THC on human glioblastoma cell proliferation and survival.” This means that CBD makes THC even more potent as an anticancer substance. Also in 2010, German researchers reported that CBD stimulates neurogenesis, the growth of new brain cells, in adult mammals.




How does CBD works?


CBD works synergistically with your body’s Endocannabinoid System (ECS) to supplement the naturally occurring cannabinoids in your system. When absorbed by the body, CBD increases the endocannabinoid system’s ability to promote balance. Consuming CBD products can help you maintain a regular level of CBD in your system for optimal wellness.




What is the Endocannabinoid System


Cannabinoid receptors located throughout the body are part of the endocannabinoid system (ECS), which is involved in a variety of physiological processes including appetite, mood, metabolism, hormone regulation, immune response, and memory.




What is the difference between CBD from Hemp and CBD from Marijuana?


Both hemp and marijuana are from the cannabis genus. The characteristic of having low THC is the single difference that most rely on to distinguish therapeutic hemp from marijuana. CBD taken from hemp and marijuana is the exact same compound.




Will CBD help my condition?


Due to federal regulations, we cannot make claims about whether or not natural full spectrum CBD oil can help with specific ailments. We do however urge everyone to research the widely available information online. You can easily find many resources about CBD hemp oil and its possible benefits.
