Is CBD right for me? This is a question we get asked all of the time. The answer is, CBD could benefit most people!
CBD is one of many cannabinoids found in cannabis plants (hemp and marijuana). CBD stands for cannabidiol and for a long time was considered to be the “lesser known” child of the cannabis sativa plant, however, these days CBD is nearly as famous as its sibling, THC. CBD and THC are just two of over 100 cannabinoids found in the plant. Although both cannabinoids have their place, CBD is proving to hold more medicinal value than THC.
CBD is advertised as providing relief for a wide variety of ailments, from anxiety to insomnia to inflammation pain. CBD mimics the body’s own endocannabinoids and interacts with the endocannabinoid system in order to achieve homeostasis throughout the body. The endocannabinoid system is responsible for connecting receptors through the central nervous system, digestive system, and other body systems, and when this process runs smoothly, the body remains in balance. When this process falters, however, inflammation occurs. This inflammation is what causes us to experience symptoms such as pain and anxiety.
Scientist now know that CBD has anti-inflammatory properties and that it helps the endocannabinoid system restore homeostasis. In simple terms, CBD helps the body’s regulatory system stay balanced by supplementing naturally occurring endocannabinoids, thus boosting its ability to combat inflammation. That being said, thousands of people testify that through daily intake of CBD they are feeling significant relief of symptoms ranging from joint pain to mental health to hormonal balance. Who wouldn’t want that? Maybe it’s time for you to give CBD a try too!
