THE BENEFITS OF CBD OIL
Cannabidiol (CBD) oil is a product that’s derived from cannabis. It’s a type of cannabinoid, which are the chemicals naturally found in marijuana plants. Even though it comes from marijuana plants, CBD doesn’t create a “high” effect or any form of intoxication — that’s caused by another cannabinoid, known as THC.
There’s some controversy around cannabis products like CBD oil because of recreational marijuana use. But there’s growing awareness about the possible health benefits of CBD oil. Here’s what you need to know about six potential medical uses of CBD and where the research stands:
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The cannabis plant contains 113 active compounds called cannabinoids. CBD, short for Cannabidiol, is one of them. It also happens to be the second cannabinoid – next to THC – that occurs in abundance in “the miracle plant”.
Contrary to THC, CBD has no intoxicating properties, so it won’t make you feel “high.” Better yet, CBD has been scientifically shown to counter the psychoactive effects of THC, including elevated anxiety caused by overconsumption of this compound.
On top of that, CBD comes with a myriad of health benefits and there are legions of people who have improved the quality of their life with the simple use of Cannabidiol.
Cannabinoids, or phytocannabinoids (phyto = plant in Greek) are capable of interacting with the body and the brain through the endocannabinoid system (ECS). While THC and other cannabinoids act directly on the cannabinoid receptors in the ECS, Cannabidiol has a slightly different nature.
CBD and the Endocannabinoid System
The endocannabinoid system is a complex network of cell receptors and neurotransmitters that are responsible for maintaining homeostasis in the body. Cannabinoid receptors are spread throughout the entire body, with largest concentrations in the central and peripheral nervous systems, and in the immune system. The ECS improves the communication between all those systems.
The endocannabinoid system also controls a wide range of biological functions, including sleep, mood, temperature control, immune response, pain and pleasure perception, fertility, memory, and appetite. Whenever something wrong happens with your health, the endocannabinoid system will release its natural cannabinoids (endocannabinoids) to restore the balance and bring you back to normal.
While we are not able to make medical claims in regards to Cannabidiol and CBD products, we strongly recommend doing further research into the benefits of this amazing cannabinoid.
