What is CBD?
CBD, also known as Cannabidiol, is one of the most common naturally occurring chemical compounds found in hemp and cannabis plants. While CBD can be a component of marijuana, by itself does not cause a “high” because it is a non-psychoactive compound. Instead, CBD on its own is known to have a wide-ranging ability to treat many medical conditions and have significant therapeutic effects.
How does it work?
In order to understand how CBD works, you need to know that CBD works in our Endocannabinoid System (ECS). The ECS is our body’s largest neurotransmitter system, and is involved in regulating appetite, sleep, mood, and memory. CBD works by influencing certain receptors and pathways in our ECS, which explains the health benefits associated with CBD. CBD can also interact with non-cannabinoid receptors, such as pain reducing and mood affecting receptors, thereby having its effects on the mind and body.
Benefits and Effects of CBD
Through many studies and clinical trials, CBD has shown to be beneficial for a range of both physical and mental ailments. CBD is an effective therapeutic treatment, namely for anxiety, stress, depression, PTSD, insomnia, and drug & alcohol addiction. In relation to anxiety, CBD helps by increasing GABA activity, regulates hypothalamic function, relaxes muscles and stops inflammation in brain Moreover, CBD has shown great results in effectively treating chronic pain and inflammation. For example, many studies show CBD being highly effective for inflammation from arthritis. CBD is also used in the treatment of serious conditions such as Parkinson’s disease, schizophrenia, and especially for epileptic syndromes such as Dravet and Lennox-Gastaut syndromes. CBD provides a highly effective treatment method with significantly less side-effects than pharmaceutical drug treatments.
