So, what exactly is CBD?
People are commonly confused about where CBD comes from and, more importantly, what it is. CBD stands for cannabidiol. It is one of over 100 compounds found in the cannabis plant and is most often derived from hemp.. Despite the negative connotation or “high” imagery that comes to mind when you hear cannabis, CBD does not alter your behavior in any way. The intoxicating feeling from smoking or ingesting Cannabis is due to another chemical compound in the plant called tetrahydrocannabinol or THC.
CBD can be safely extracted from the Cannabis plant and is often consumed as an oil placed under the tongue. However, other ways to administer CBD can be through lotions, creams, gummy snacks, or even in beverages. Because of the host of health benefits, and its non-psychoactive effects, hemp extracted CBD is legal in all 50 states has become the interest of large soft drink manufacturers, and, most recently has been approved by the FDA to be used to treat severe epileptic disorders.
Is CBD safe to use?
The short answer is, yes! CBD works by stimulating special receptors in your brain to help lessen the stress and pain signals your body may be releasing. This means if you have chronic pain, high anxiety, or are struggling to manage stress, CBD oil can be used as a safe and all-natural way to calm the body and help it return to a relaxed state of homeostasis. CBD is so safe, in fact, that your body naturally produces chemicals very similar to it. By taking hemp derived CBD you will, in essence, be giving your body a much-needed boost to handle the daily stress it is under.
How do CBD receptors affect my body?
CBD interacts with the central nervous system, more specifically the “endocannabinoid system” in the brain. This system is responsible for receiving and responding to various signals from your body, including those that deal with pain, pressure, anxiety, and mood. The endocannabinoid system contains receptors throughout the body, so when the body is experiencing discomfort, the endocannabinoid system is activated. Your body naturally produces calming chemicals, however, you may not be producing enough to truly put your body in a relaxing state. However, by using CBD endocannabinoid oil or plant-based pain alternatives, the body is better equipped to reduce its response to pain, and in turn, lessen the effects of inflammation and stress on the body.
What does research say about CBD?
Hundreds of reputable, peer-reviewed scientific studies spanning more than 50 years point to the safety and healing benefits CBD has to offer. Researchers have found CBD oil to be an effective and all-natural way to reduce anxiety, alleviate stress, improve mental clarity, and help decrease the negative symptoms of several disorders including PTSD, insomnia, and epilepsy.
