Title: Beginners Guide To CBD

Beginners Guide To CBD
Cannabidiol (CBD) is perhaps best known for its
potential to reduce the frequency and severity of
seizures, particularly in children. The
cannabinoid is also gaining a significant amount
of attention for its wide array of other
therapeutic and lifestyle benefits. But, what
exactly is CBD and how does it work?
Not only that, how is it different from the more
well-known cannabinoid, THC? If youre
researching CBD, sifting through all of the
available information to separate the facts from
misconceptions can seem overwhelming.

Beginners Guide To CBD
What is CBD? Researchers have discovered that
more than 400 different compounds exist within
the cannabis plant. Among the more important ones
are known as cannabinoids, of which there are
more than 60 and counting. Cannabinoids are
specific compounds produced by the cannabis plant
that interact with the endocannabinoid system
(ECS) of the body. When cannabis is consumed,
cannabinoids bind to endocannabinoid system
receptors this has a number of effects. The
endocannabinoid systempart of the nervous
systemis associated with mechanisms in the body
that are responsible for regulating a number of
different functions including appetite, mood,
pain, memory and much more. Cannabinoids aren't
necessarily only found outside of the body to be
ingested. In fact, they are actually produced
naturally in the human body, just in a different
form. As such, cannabinoids shouldn't really be
looked at as a foreign substance at all.

Beginners Guide To CBD
Where CBD is Found? As already mentioned, CBD is
naturally found in the seeds, stalk and flowers
of cannabis plants. Since CBD is present in high
quantities in the plant, it is easily extracted
using various extraction techniques. In fact, CBD
is among the more prevalent cannabinoids in the
cannabis plant in addition to THC.
CBD can be found in both hemp and marijuana
cannabis plants. The main difference between the
two is the level of THC. While marijuana contains
high levels of THC, hemp only has trace amounts
of the psychoactive cannabinoid. The CBD that is
naturally found in hemp is legal in the U.S.
while CBD from marijuana is illegal.

CBD Derived from Hemp vs. Marijuana Not all CBD
is created equal, but there is often some
confusion between CBD that is derived from hemp
versus that is derived from marijuana. It's
important for consumers looking to buy CBD to
understand the difference between the two in
terms of its legality and efficacy before making
a purchase. To make the distinction between the
two, it helps to gain an understanding of hemp
and marijuana, both of which come from the
cannabis sativa L plant species. Hemp plants have
been around for decades and are typically used
for the production of all sorts of different
commercial products. It's a legal product that's
widely available on many store shelves. This
plant is usually tall and thin, and is
predominantly grown for its durable fiber. On
the other hand, marijuana is a shorter and wider
plant that is mainly grown for its flowers and
buds. This plant is typically grown specifically
to be smoked for recreational purposes or for
cannabinoid extraction.

Difference Between CBD and THC
CBD and THC are the two main compounds found in
the cannabis plant. Both compounds can offer
important health benefits to the
body. Scientists have long known that THC is
responsible for giving recreational users the
"high" that they want. But until recently, not
nearly as much has been known about the effects
of CBD.
The biggest difference between THC and CBD is
their psychological effects on the brain. As
already mentioned, THC is what gets a person
high. CBD does not have any psychoactive medical
benefits. THC's euphoric effects are a result of
the cannabinoid binding to CB1 (cannabinoid 1)
and CB2 (cannabinoid 2) receptors, predominantly
located in the brain.

Health Benefits of CBD There's a reason why CBD
oil has gained in popularity over the recent
past it offers plenty of health benefits. Here
are some benefits that CBD has been found to
have, according to scientific studies. Relieves
Pain while many people are often prescribed
NSAIDs for pain relief as a result of a variety
of different ailments and injuries, CBD oil has
been found to offer pain relief the natural way.
Studies have shown that cannabinoids (including
CBD oil) can alleviate pain by slowing down the
transmission of neurons along pain pathways. CBD
oil can also inhibit inflammation in joints that
is often a source of pain in patients with
arthritis and other degenerative
diseases. Reduces Anxiety CBD oil has a calming
effect when taken in proper doses. Anxiety is a
common mental health disorder that can have
debilitating effects on a person's life. While it
is typically treated with pharmaceutical
medication, these drugs don't come without a few
side effects including drowsiness and agitation.
Some of them can even become addictive.

Health Benefits of CBD Helps Combat Cancer The
suggestion that something as simple and natural
as CBD oil may help to fight cancer is a huge
one. Research has shown that this cannabidiol may
be able to slow the growth of cancerous tumors
and potentially stop them altogether. Relieves
Nausea While many of the health benefits of CBD
oil have only recently been discovered, some
others have long been known. In fact, cannabis
has been used to alleviate nausea and vomiting
for centuries. More recent studies have shown
that low doses of cannabinoids like CBD suppress
toxin-induced nausea and vomiting. Treats
Seizures Perhaps one of the more well-known
benefits of CBD oil is its ability to
significantly reduce the frequency and severity
of seizures. Many children who suffer from
epilepsy and other seizure-inducing disorders
have already found great relief from their
seizures thanks to cannabinoids like CBD.

Health Benefits of CBD Reduces the Incidence of
Diabetes Studies have discovered that CBD oil
may have the ability to drastically lower the
incidence of diabetes thanks to its impact on
glucose, insulin and insulin resistance.
Researchers also found an association between CBD
use and smaller waist circumferences, an
important factor in developing diabetes. Improves
Cardiovascular Health Recent studies have
linked CBD with a number of benefits for the
cardiovascular and circulatory system including
lowering high blood pressure, an important factor
in heart attacks and strokes. Research points to
the possibility that CBD may be a natural and
effective treatment protocol for high blood
pressure. Minimizes Acne Over 9 of the
American population suffers from acne, a common
skin condition that can be exacerbated by poor
diet, genetics, bacteria and an overproduction of
sebum.

  • CBD Oil for Pets
  • The benefits of CBD on the human body are tough
    to argue against based on the ongoing research on
    this cannabinoid, but how can it help pets? In
    fact, CBD can be as beneficial to pets as their
    human counterparts because they also have an
    endocannabinoid system.
  • Pet owners typically give CBD oil to their furry
    friends to
  • Reduce anxiety
  • Promote relaxation in nervous pets
  • Treat epilepsy
  • Improve skin issues
  • Reduce pain, particularly in aging animals
