6 Facts You Should Know About CBD

Updated: Jan 22, 2019

1.) CBD is a Main Component of Cannabis

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a primary component of cannabis. It is one of more than 85 compounds unique to the plant and grouped under the umbrella term cannabinoids. CBD and THC are the most prominent cannabinoids found in cannabis, and as such have undergone the heaviest scientific study.

2.) CBD Oil Won’t Get You High

CBD does not cause the feeling of being ‘high’ that is often associated with cannabis. The high is caused by THC. THC binds tightly to the CB1 and CB2 nerve receptors in the brain and throughout the body. CBD does not bind to these receptors and instead causes its therapeutic actions through more indirect means.

Because CBD will not make you feel intoxicated, it is a great option for parents, workers, and anyone else who does not to compromise their mental clarity.

Many health conditions, both severe and not, are treated with pharmaceutical drugs. Unfortunately, many of these drugs have unpleasant or dangerous side effects. In some instances, CBD may offer non-toxic, virtually side-effect free, natural benefits for individuals who want to avoid or reduce the number of pharmaceuticals they are taking.

3.) CBD Oil from Hemp is Legal

CBD products come either from medical cannabis or industrial hemp plants. Cannabis is legal in all states. This means that consumers are free to choose CBD as a natural supplement without worrying about any legal repercussions.

4.) The Human Body Produces Cannabinoids, and CBD Oil Helps

Phytocannabinoids are cannabinoids derived from plants. Endocannabinoids are cannabinoids produced naturally in the human body.

One example of an endocannabinoid is anandamide, or ‘the bliss molecule.’ This molecule activates the CB1 receptor.

Benefits of activating the CB1 receptor include:

  • Relieving depression

  • Increasing myelin formation

  • Lowering intestinal inflammation

  • Decreasing intestinal permeability

  • Lowering blood pressure

  • Lowering anxiety

  • Reducing fear and paranoia

6.) CBD Oil Helps Children with Seizures and Epilepsy

Perhaps one of the most exciting applications of CBD oil is its potential impact for adults and children with epilepsy.

Individuals who were experiencing dozens of seizures daily have found that CBD can dramatically decrease the these numbers.

Considering the shocking increase in children receiving prescriptions for various ailments, CBD oil may provide a non-toxic more natural alternative to pharmaceutical treatments, preventing children from experiencing long term damage or side effects.
