What is CBD?

Cannabidiol (CBD) is anon intoxicatingchemical found in cannabis and hemp classified in a group of compounds known as cannabinoids. Among these CBD fits into the receptors found on the surface of cells that make up our endocannabinoid system. This system impacts major bodily functions such as: modulation of pain, memory, appetite, anti-inflammatory effects, and other immune system responses. 

As CBD research advances clinical trials are showing incredible promise in treating a wide range of illnesses. The receptors that make up our endocannabinoid system are either defined as CB1 or CB2. By activating these receptor sites the body is able to engage in a natural healing process. These receptors can be found in all of organs including our brain as well as our central nervous system. This means CBD has list of properties, for starters it’s: antioxidant, anti-spasm, anticonvulsant, antipsychotic, and anti-tumoral. 

Because CBD is non intoxicating it can be very desirable for patients seeking to avoid narcotics to treat their condition. Side effects are extremely uncommon and benign with the most severe reaction being petite drowsiness. It’s safe for children and the elderly, but you should always consult a professional physician before taking any new medications. 

CBD can be found in many forms in today’s market. There are lotions or other topicals, oils that get absorbed sublingually into the blood through tissues under the toung, suppositories, edibles, and the list goes on. No one method of ingestion is superior and patients might need to experiment to find out what works best for them. Please read our post “how to use CBD” to get a more detailed description of each way CBD can be consumed. 

Adequate dosage will vary from patient to patient depending on their response and the condition they wish to treat. Daily intake of CBD can range from 20mg to 1000mg or more. There’s limited to no side effects among the majority of patients and because cbd is non toxic and does not react with our central nervous system, there’s virtually no risk of taking ‘too much’.In 2017, the World Health Organization’s Expert Committee on Drug Dependence said that “..in addition to being generally well tolerated with a good safety profile, CBD had no public health concerns when taken as a pure extract from the cannabis plant.”I tend to encourage most people to consume cbd everyday in various amounts.

  1. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to
    be really something that I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complicated and extremely broad for me.
    I am looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!
