CBD stands for cannabidiol. It is the second most prevalent of the active ingredients of cannabis. CBD is derived directly from the hemp plant, which is a cousin of the marijuana plant. While CBD is a component of marijuana (one of hundreds), by itself it does not cause a “high.” According to a report from the World Health Organization, “In humans, CBD exhibits no effects indicative of any abuse or dependence potential... Cannabinoid receptors, located throughout the body, are part of the endocannabinoid system, which is involved in a variety of physiological processes including appetite, pain-sensation, mood, and memory. Patients who use CBD have claimed benefits include improved mood, reduced inflammation due to arthritis or other similar conditions as well as relief from chronic pain and insomnia.
Science has proven that CBD alleviates inflammation in the body. Our bodies use inflammation to protect from infection. However, if inflammation is unregulated it can develop into heart disease and autoimmune disorders. Taking CBD on a regular basis can reduce these risks and ease the pain associated with inflammation.
Anxiety is a disorder that presents itself as excessive nervousness, worry, fear and apprehension. Science has proven that the regular use of CBD can help alleviate these symptoms.
Higher doses of CBD have been very effective in helping aid in sleeping. CBD can help a person get to sleep easier and stay asleep longer.
Scientists have been mapping the Endocannabinoid system for decades and have uncovered some astounding results. They have discovered that the Endocannabinoid system is responsible for a variety of functions in our bodies. This system plays an essential role in regulating our physiology, mood, and everyday life experience. Every living being on this planet, except for insects, has this system, which is just like the network of blood vessels and nerves that run through our bodies. The most important function of the Endocannabinoid system is protect us from illness and disease. Basically, humans should all be taking CBD in any form on a daily basis to help keep us healthy by supplying the Endocannabinoid system with the fuel it needs.
