What is Cannabidiol (aka CBD)?
Cannabidiol is an extract obtained from hemp flowers. CBD is a phyto cannabinoid which means it's an active ingredient of the cannabis plant. Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of the most abundant cannabinoids found in the cannabis and hemp plant. CBD oil is non-intoxicating, has no known adverse side effects, and is virtually impossible to lethally overdose.
Hemp-derived medicine has been traditionally used across many cultures for centuries. For years, CBD had been neglected while recreational and medical users and scientists focused on the mind-altering chemical, THC. Today, scientists around the world are studying all of the 100+ cannabinoids found in cannabis and hemp including CBD, THC, CBN, CBG, and CBC.
Cannabidiol has interesting properties that is anti-inflammatory, analgesic, and calming or antipsychotic.
Types of CBD
There are 3 different types of CBD on the market categorized depending on how many cannabinoids they contain.
Full Spectrum - Full spectrum contains the “full spectrum” of natural compounds found in hemp oil, including phytocannabinoids, terpenes, polyphenols, and more. This type includes THC, the hallucinogenic element in hemp plants.
Broad Spectrum - This refers to hemp extract that contains all cannabinoids in the hemp plants but with all of the THC removed.
Isolate - This type contains only CBD that has been isolated from the rest of the phytonutrients, and contains no other cannbinoids found in the hemp plant.
The Benefits of CBD
There are plenty of studies and testimonials from people using CBD oil for a lot of different ailments. Although more study and research is necessary, there has been studies that suggest that CBD has therapeutic value, not only in humans but for cats and dogs as well. Numerous people are reporting success in using CBD to reach a desired state of calm and relaxation. CBD also has strong antioxidant properties. It has shown benefits in terms of pain relief, lessening anxiety, reducing inflammation, and better sleep cycles.
Does CBD Oil Get You High?
CBD is just one of over 100 phytocannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. CBD oil is typically sourced from industrial hemp plants that have higher concentrations of CBD and lower concentrations of THC. Therefore it is impossible to get high by ingesting CBD that has only traces of THC.
How Does CBD Oil Work?
Our body actually has areas that are made specifically for cannabinoids. They are called cannabinoid receptor sites. These sites make up the endocannabinoid system which is responsible for numerous physiological and mental processes that occur naturally within the body. The endocannabinoid system includes a number of specialized cell receptors in the brain and in various other organs throughout the body. The two types of receptors are CB1, found mainly in the brain but also in the liver, kidney, and lungs, and CB2, which is found mainly in the immune system. Cannabinoid substances actually bind these receptor to coordinate various functions across the body.
CBD interacts with cells within our bodies by activating the cannabinoid receptors. Some cannabinoids are capable of desirable calming effects and others cause undesirable psychotropic effects in our bodies. Currently, there are no documented studies that show undesirable effects from CBD. However, there are many studies showing CBD to cause only desirable effects or no effects at all. It is important to note that research is still underway for many applications of CBD.
