Cannabidiol, or CBD for short, is a naturally occurring compound of the hemp plant. Even though it comes from cannabis sativa, CBD differs from marijuana in that it doesn’t produce a “high,” making it more accessible to more people.
In December of 2018, the U.S. Farm Bill passed, which federally legalized industrial hemp and product made from hemp, as long as it contains only trace amounts (<0.3%) of THC, the psychoactive element of marijuana. CBD oil is non-intoxicating, and can legally be shipped to any location in the U.S. Many people appreciate the countless healing properties and benefits of CBD, but don’t necessarily want the intoxication or potential habit-forming nature of marijuana, which contains much higher levels of THC.
When you understand how CBD works, it’s easy to see why so many people enjoy CBD for its healing properties across a wide spectrum of conditions and ailments. Every human and animal has an Endocannabinoid System, better known as the ECS. This is a kind of complex cell communication system that works tirelessly to keep the body in a state of balance, known as homeostasis. The ECS makes specific, precise adjustments to maintain this balance when factors in the external environment change.
The ECS consists of endocannabinoids, receptors, and enzymes. Endocannabinoids are cannabinoid-like substances that our bodies naturally produce. This is why CBD is such a natural remedy -because of the effect so closely mimics the inherent natural processes of the body. Receptors are found throughout the body, with a high concentration in the brain and gut. The ECS supports proper functioning of digestion, sleep, pain/pleasure responses, mood, the reproductive system, inflammation, appetite, immune function, motor control, temperature, memory, fertility, and more.
Now that you understand how important the ECS is, you can easily understand the potential healing impact of CBD oil. People are using CBD oil for a wide range of issues, from acne to anxiety; from arthritis to sleep disorders; from inflammation to seizures, and plenty more. You can find an abundance of anecdotal proof online of people using CBD to help with:
