CBD: The Basics
Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of the most well-known, non-psychoactive cannabinoids found in specific types of cannabis, and provides a variety of very important medicinal benefits. Unlike its sister cannabinoid THC, the CBD extracted from hemp provides a legal alternative to medical marijuana and provides consumers with the benefits of CBD without the risk of getting high. Since CBD has no psychoactive effect, it is an excellent option for people seeking the medicinal benefits of cannabis without breaking the law, risking impairment or experiencing the stigma of seeking a prescription. The CBD that’s found in hemp oil is quickly becoming the focus of widespread medical and scientific research.
What is a Cannabinoid?
Simply put, cannabinoids are naturally occurring compounds found in the cannabis plant. There are over 80 of these compounds including Cannabidiol (CBD), THC, and a host of other cannabinoids. After THC, hemp CBD is by far the most studied natural cannabinoid. According to many researchers, CBD may be the single most important cannabinoid ever discovered, and possesses great potential when it comes to increasing vitality in both humans and animals without the psychoactivity experienced with its sister cannabinoid THC.
The Science Behind
The science is clear. We all have an endocannabinioid system (ECS). The ECS is a group of cannabinoid receptors found in the brain and throughout the central nervous system.
These receptor sites fall into two very distinct categories: CB1 and CB2. CBD works as an agonist, and binds to these receptor sites creating a virtual balancing act where many therapeutic effects are produced.
CBD acts on serotonin and GABA receptors to help stabilize mood and regulate anxiety.
By stimulating the ECS, CBD can help reset sleep patterns and enable longer periods of uninterrupted sleep.
CBD impacts the immune system by interacting with the CB2 receptors to help heal and regulate inflammation.
Due to the scarcity of hemp, we are currently limited to how many online offers we can process. Our max per day is currently 250 orders.
