HELPFUL INFORMATION ABOUT CBD

Are you wondering about CBD and whether or not you should be taking it? You are not alone. More and more people are becoming interested in CBD and are making it a part of their daily lifestyle.

WHAT IS CBD?

CBD or Cannabidiol is a naturally occurring compound found in the flower of cannabis and hemp plants. CBD is closely related to tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the compound that causes the feeling of being “high.”
But unlike THC, CBD does not make a person feel intoxicated. That’s because CBD and THC act in different ways and on different receptors in the brain and body. CBD comes in many forms, including tinctures, gel caps, lotions, edibles, and vape pens. Most people try a few of these and determine what works best for them.

HOW DOES CBD WORK?

CBD works by interacting with our body systems, including the central nervous system, skin, digestive tract, and the reproductive organs, to “unlock” cell receptors that are part of the endocannabinoid system (ECS). ECS affects just about every aspect of your health and wellbeing, from mood and memory to pain perception and motor control to appetite and sleep. Because CBD has a similar composition to chemicals the human body produces naturally, it can help the ECS with neuroprotection, stress recovery, immune balance, and homeostatic regulation.

HOW IS CBD DIFFERENT THAN THC?

Unlike THC, CBD is non-psychoactive, which means you can expect to relax with CBD, but you won’t feel intoxicated. In fact, CBD seems to act as a natural barrier against the “high” (and potential anxiety) associated with THC.
