What’s the Deal with CBD?
You’ve likely heard a lot of buzz about CBD Oil lately and many of you may have some questions, so we are here to set the record straight.
Let’s start with a quick biology lesson regarding The Endocannabinoid System.
The Endocannabinoid System, or ECS, is a system within the body responsible for regulating a variety of both cognitive and physiological processes by producing natural cannabinoids, called endocannabinoids, that interact with certain receptors in the brain and other major organ systems. Some of its basic functions include memory, mood, appetite, sleep, pain, sensation, and immunity. Many scientists believe that the purpose of the Endocannabinoid System is the help the body establish and maintain good health.
Now let’s talk about CBD.
Cannabidiol, or CBD, is derived from the hemp or cannabis plant which has been used for thousands of years all over the globe and offers many health benefits to its users.
Is it legal?!
Absolutely! CBD is a non-intoxicating component of the cannabis plant and contains no THC (the psychoactive ingredient in marijuana) and will not alter your thoughts and perceptions but instead has immense therapeutic potential.
Ok, so what does CBD have to do with the ECS?
As stated earlier, the ECS produces endocannabinoids that bind with receptors in the nervous system and directly effects our bodies. The phytocannabinoid compounds produced by hemp, like CBD, can have the same effect by stimulating the endocannabinoid system just as our own natural cannabinoids would.
What are the benefits of CBD?
CBD offers a variety of health benefits to users of all ages, both physically and cognitively. It elevates health and wellness by reducing depression and anxiety and also benefits people with pain relief, bone health, digestive health, cell regeneration, sleep disorders, and can even help those struggling with serious conditions such as Alzheimer’s, dementia, and epilepsy; it can even be used on your pets! CBD products have been shown to aid in nearly any condition for patients of all ages and we are just beginning to learn of the wellness benefits of Cannabidiol!
