What is CBD and why should I use it?
You may have already heard about CBD as it is becoming very popular in America for a variety of reasons. Lets give you a quick overview of what CBD is and why you should use it!
CBD is short for the word Cannabidiol, one of the many cannabinoids that are naturally occurring not only within the Cannabis plant, but also the human body.
CBD that is legal under the 2018 Farm Bill must be derived from Industrial Hemp, and not Marijuana to remain in compliance. We don’t need to go into detail in this particular topic, but the main difference between Hemp and Marijuana is that Hemp has a high % CBD and low % THC ( THC is what gets you “high”), whereas Marijuana has a high % of THC and a low % of CBD). CBD doesn’t get you high though, it’s more known to get you healthy.
CBD is one of over 100 active cannabinoids within the Cannabis Sativa plant and is known to help people with a wide variety of ailments including Anxiety, Pain Relief, Inflammation, and Insomnia. The best part about CBD is that it’s a natural substance that is great for general health and in many cases has replaced many of the dangerous opioids,benzodiazepines, and other Rx medicines on the market that have so many side effects that other ailments tend to be gained in the process.
There have been many studies about CBD, mainly in places like Israel, which have shown tremendous success with no downsides including side effects, addiction, or overdose. CBD works with your bodies endocannabinoid system (ECS) which is a complex communication system that is located in the brain and throughout the central and peripheral nervous systems. The ECS is responsible for providing stability throughout your body which is something known as homeostasis. CBD works with your body’s Endocannabinoid System to encourage your body to naturally produce more cannabinoids which in turn allows you to live a healthier lifestyle and alleviate a variety of symptoms without relying on dangerous Rx drugs and their side effects.
