What is CBD?
CBD one of the many naturally occurring cannabinoids found in the hemp plant. CBD interacts with the human and animal body through the endocannabinoid system, which is responsible for regulating a number of physiological functions. CBD oil is typically extracted from the stalks and seeds of hemp. This plant-derived substance has shown anti-inflammatory, pain-relieving, and anti-anxiety effects.
What are Cannabinoids?
Cannabinoids are compounds that work naturally with the body to help regulate biological processes including inflammation, sleep, relaxation, appetite. Taken regularly, cannabinoids helps maintain a healthy balance in the endocannabinoid system, along with many other therapeutic benefits.
How does CBD work?
All humans and animals have an endocannabinoid system that helps maintain the physiological, neurological, and immunological systems of the body. If the person or animal is lacking endocannabinoid production, the system’s multiple receptors will utilize the addition of cannabinoids to help create balance and provide support for relaxing, repairing, and restoring. A daily supplement of CBD oil helps support this process.
Whats the difference between CBD and THC?
CBD and THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) are both cannabinoids derived from cannabis. They both interact with the cannabinoid receptors of the endocannabinoid system. The main difference between these two popular cannabinoids is that one is psychoactive and one is not. THC is the cannabinoid that directly activates that CB1 receptor to create a euphoric side effect. CBD is an indirect antagonist of the CB1 receptor because it blocks it from linking with other compounds, making it non-psychoactive.
How long does it take to feel the effects of CBD?
Properties of CBD will vary for each individual depending on height, weight, and the quantity of CBD taken. Start with small amounts and gradually increase with each use until reaching desired results.
