It is unfortunate that we have been miseducated on Cannabis. While opioids are killing on average 134 people a day, no one has ever overdosed on Cannabis. Despite it’s safe track record and the numerous health benefits, Cannabis is listed as a schedule I drug. A scheduled one drug is considered the most dangerous drug with zero health benefits.
The recent signing of the 2018 Farm Bill has made certain components of the Cannabis plant (CBD with less than .3% THC) legally available in all 50 states. There’s no question that CBD is the buzzy wellness product of the moment. If you live in a state where it’s currently legal, you might feel like CBD has gone from being sort of around to absolutely everywhere all at once.
But even though it’s infiltrating pretty much every corner of the wellness world many people still find CBD a little confusing—especially when it comes to figuring out the right way to use it and how to make sure the stuff you’re buying is, you know, actually legit.
What is CBD?
CBD stands for cannabidiol. It is a natural concentrate found in different strains of the cannabis plant. CBD is the second most common cannabinoid after delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).
Unlike THC, CBD is non psychotropic and therefore doesn’t cause a euphoric high. It has numerous health benefits and contains nutritious substances such as chlorophyll, omega-3 fatty acids, terpenes, vitamins, amino acids and other phytocannabinoids.
It’s a naturally occurring substance that’s used in products like oils and edibles to impart a feeling of relaxation and calm.
How the Endocannabinoid System (ECS) Works?
Our bodies can easily get knocked out of balance when it doesn’t produce sufficient endocannabinoids and that deficiency can cause severe pain/discomfort and numerous other issues. The ECS system was discovered 30 years ago and is now considered one of the MOST vital regulatory systems within the human body. It controls how we feel, think and react.
When these Cannabinoids (example: CBD and THC) are absorbed into our system, they can imitate the compounds that our bodies naturally produce (endocannabinoids) and amazingly provide relief to numerous symptoms that our bodies commonly experience: discomfort, anxiety, and inflammation. While there is no mind-altering effects with CBD, it shares some of the medicinal benefits of THC, plus more!
