What is CBD? Is CBD Safe?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is currently skyrocketing in popularity in various specialties. CBD comes from hemp, but cannot be confused with its close relative cannabis. Hemp and cannabis come from the same Cannabis Sativa plant species. Even though they are from the same plant species, CBD derived from hemp is legal in various states while CBD derived from cannabis still has its specific regulations depending on the location of use. However, both contain all of the similar benefits.
Our Human bodies create their natural supply of endocannabinoids in very minuscule amounts, but can also be found exogenously as phytocannabinoids like CBD and THC. Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the psychoactive cannabinoid in hemp and cannabis, meaning it creates the "high" effect that people feel from using marijuana. CBD and THC work together with various other compounds derived from the hemp plant such as terpenes and amino acids to enhance its delivery to the body's endocannabinoid system. This form of CBD extract is known as a full-spectrum which is currently known to be the most efficient way to enhance all the benefits of CBD.
CBD brings about its various benefits by influencing the endocannabinoid system which is a signaling system that helps maintain proper balance of body & mind. CBD has a natural balancing effect on the endocannabinoid system, which works to maintain homeostasis. CBD activates and inhibits various receptors along the EC system which generates beneficial health attributes. Various physicians have began to recognize that CBD products can become a safe and healthy alternative to maintaining a natural balance.
The benefits coming from CBD are only managing and regulating. CBD promotes a stable equilibrium but does not cure or prevent any specific disease.
