What is CBD Oil
CBD hemp oil is made from high-CBD, low-THC hemp, unlike #medicalmarijuana products, which are usually made from plants with high concentrations of psychoactive tetrahydrocannabinol (#THC). Because #hemp contains only trace amounts of THC, these #hempoil products are non-psychoactive. Cannabidiol (#CBD) is just one of over 85 cannabinoids presently identified in the cannabis plant and is the second most abundant cannabinoid in marijuana after THC. In hemp, however, THC is only present in trace amounts, while CBD dominates the plant’s makeup. CBD interacts with our naturally occurring systems, but is non-psychotropic, it doesn’t cause a high. This makes it a safer, less controversial alternative, while still offering significant health benefits.
What are the Effects of CBD?
CBD interacts with the body through the endogenous cannabinoid system (ECS) or #endocannabinoid system. First discovered in the late 1980’s, the endocannabinoid system regulates the body’s homeostasis, or general state of balance, impacting such functions as mood, sleep, appetite, hormone regulation, and pain and immune response. Like an acrobat on a highwire, as the environment around us impacts our normal balance, the endocannabinoid system “corrects” by mediating our body’s reaction to keep us level.
What is the Endocannabinoid System?
Found in all #mammals, the endocannabinoid system, is made up of millions of cannabinoid receptor sites located primarily throughout the brain and central nervous system (#CB1 receptors) and immune system (#CB2 receptors) that act in neural communication. However, the endocannabinoid system doesn’t simply rely on plant-based cannabinoids, or phytocannabinoids. The human body is capable of making its own cannabinoids. Similar in function to CBD, Anandamide and 2-AG are the body’s own endocannabinoids, created to control communication between cells, mediating your body’s functions.
