We are providing answers to the most frequently asked questions about CBD and everything related to CBD.
What is CBD?
CBD is an abbreviation for 'cannabidiol."
Cannabidiol is a cannabinoid derived from the Cannabis plant species, which is free from psychoactive activity. Numerous studies have indicated that CBD may have many health benefits such as Anxiety, Depression and Inflammatory pain relief.
Depending on the specific hemp plant, CBD can comprise the majority of a plant's cannabinoid content. CBD is just one of more than 113 identified cannabinoids found in hemp and cannabis plants. CBD is not psychoactive. It is a non-intoxicating phytocannabinoid that offers a range of whole-body uses.
How does CBD work?
In most cases, many diseases of various types of complexity are treated with pharmaceuticals. Still, some of them are either addictive; some have many side effects or have an enormous cost while CBD can be an excellent, non-toxic and effective analogue.
Our body produces cannabinoids to maintain the normal functioning of the body and CBD Oil helps in case of shortage. There are endocannabinoids produced in the human body, and there are phytocannabinoids obtained from plants. Lack of endocannabinoids in the body leads to a deterioration in health and mental health, and in some cases, to severe illnesses like (Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, migraine, etc.).
CBD Oil affects several neurotransmitter receptors, and therefore may improve the overall standing, reduces pain, regulates appetite, sleep, nausea, anxiety, inflammation, etc. At the same time, hemp with a high CBD content is non-psychotropic and has virtually no undesirable effects such as THC.
Benefits of CBD
As its gaining popularity in the health and wellness world, There are many health benefits in consuming CBD. Listed below are some of the main benefits CBD may help in a variety of ways:
- Pain Relief
- Neuroprotective Properties
- High blood pressure
- Substance abuse
- Diabetes Prevention
Can you overdose on CBD?
Studies show that CBD is a natural and completely safe product. For the fact of "overdose", you need a huge amount, approximately 2000 mg at a time. However, the consequences will not be terrible. You may feel the adverse symptoms that go away.
However, we strongly discourage the use of CBD in large quantities, as small dosages are sufficient to alleviate your symptoms, and to beginners, we suggest starting your CBD experience with small doses.
What is the endocannabinoid system?
The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a complex system for transmitting signals from cells in the human body. The body's endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a vital molecular system for helping maintain homeostasis and the ability to maintain a relatively stable internal state that persists despite changes in the world outside and also reduces pain and reduces inflammation.
ECS plays a role in regulating several processes, including:
What are The Benefits of CBD and the endocannabinoid system?
According to research studies, the endocannabinoid system not only responds to endocannabinoids produced in the body but also responds to external cannabinoids such as CBD. Using CBD in the body may reduce the symptoms of many diseases, including epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, chronic inflammation, depression, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, anxiety and opioid withdrawal.
CBD acts on the CB1 and CBD2 receptors of the body to obtain positive results. This effect activates TRPV1 receptors, which are involved in the control of several functions, such as pain perception, inflammation, and body temperature. CBD can also increase the amount of endogenous anandamide cannabinoid in the human body, known as the bliss molecule, which plays a role in the nervous regeneration of pleasure.
What is THC?
Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is a chemical secreted by the glands of the marijuana plant. THC is the primary psychoactive compound in marijuana that gives the high sensation. One of the ways of consuming THC is by smoking marijuana. It is also available in THC oils, capsules, and more.
Once in the human body, THC runs through the circulatory system and reaches your brain. THC then mimics the cannabinoid chemicals that naturally appear in the body, attached to your cannabinoid receptors.
These areas are in the cerebral cortex, cerebellum and basal ganglia and are associated with the processes of thinking, memory, motor movements, pleasure, coordination and concentration.
Why do you get high from THC?
It mimics anandamide (the bliss molecule), which is a natural cannabinoid found in the body.
Does CBD oil show up in drug test?
It is unlikely that CBD will appear in a drug test. Drug tests usually only test for THC - a compound in cannabis that gives you a "high" - or one of the compounds created when your body metabolizes it. And by UK law, CBD products may contain up to 0.2% THC.
Please note that an average drug test does not detect CBD. CBD is chemically different from THC, so it is doubtful that pure CBD will identify in this type of drug test.
Also, we want to note that new methods for extracting CBD from hemp eliminate traces of THC in products.
Does CBD help with anxiety?
Here we want to reference the study published in 2015 in PubMed Central (PMC) article “Cannabidiol as a potential treatment for anxiety disorders”.
The article based on research from scientists from New York stating that Preclinical evidence actively demonstrates the effectiveness of CBD. In reducing anxiety associated with multiple disorders, including PTSD, GAD, PD, OCD and SAD, with a marked absence of anxiogenic effects. This study highlights the potential value and need for further study of CBD in the treatment of anxiety conditions.
What is Cannabigerol?
Cannabigerol (CBG) is one of the main phytocannabinoids, along with CBD and THC, and attracts the interest of scientists. Cannabigerol is not psychotropic.
Studies show that CBG is effective as a regulator of endocannabinoid transmission.The potential benefits of this phytocannabinoid, according to research results are:
- Antibacterial properties.
- Anti-anxiety properties.
- CBG potentially help in the treatment of cancer, as it can block the body’s receptors which cause the growth of cancer cells.
What is a synthetic cannabinoid?
"Synthetic marijuana", synthetic cannabinoids Spice K2 are human-made chemicals. Synthetic cannabinoids as an alternative to marijuana. They are mainly used for smoking and evaporation. May cause serious side effects and be toxic.
