Everything You Need to Know About CBD Oil
CBD is all the rage lately, but many people still don’t know what is it and even avoid learning about it altogether because they fear it is illegal or will get them high. Did you know that CBD has been called the “miracle drug”? But as we will explain, it’s not really a drug at all. Simply put, it’s a great natural healer.
Below we’ll break down where CBD comes from, what it is, and just how beneficial it can be to your health.
What is CBD?
Many people think that CBD is medical marijuana. This is NOT true. Cannabidiol, most commonly recognized as CBD, is a cannabis compound that has substantial benefits.
Hemp and marijuana may be in the cannabis family, but this does not make them the same. The compound that makes up the chemicals found in hemp and marijuana are very different, which effects the functions that each provide.
What is the difference Between CBD and Marijuana?
Hemp and marijuana are both cannabis, meaning they both contain phytocannabinoids. Marijuana is most often associated with THC and hemp extract is often associated with CBD, a health & wellness phytocannabinoid.
Phyto means “plant.” Humans and mammals both produce what are known as endocannabinoids. Endo means “within.” These two share major roles in our normal immune and central nervous system function.
Hemp’s phytocannabinoids work with our Endocannabinoid System (ECS), which forms an enormous receptor system that helps support homeostasis and health.
One of the key things in understanding the difference between
the two and their reactions is that Marijuana contains 0.3% THC (the only phytocannabinoid that gets you "high") and Hemp has less than 0.3% THC and is not psychoactive. Using Hemp will not give you a “stoned” feeling.
The CBD oil product used in our office, Charlotte's Web proprietary, non-GMO hemp genetics, contain a unique combination of phytocannbinoids.
It’s more than just CBD. Charlotte's Web includes naturally occurring terpenes, flavonoids, and other valuable hemp compounds that work synergistically to heighten positive effects, sometimes referred to as the “Entourage Effect,” making it more complete than single-compound CBD alternatives.
How Can it Benefit Your Health?
CBD can be excellent option for patients looking for relief from pain from inflammation, anxiety, seizures, muscle spasms and other distressing emotions of lethargy or dysphoria.
Through scientific and clinical research, CBD’s benefits has found to treat a large range of conditions including arthritis, diabetes, alcoholism, MS, chronic pain, schizophrenia, PTSD, depression, antibiotic-resistant infections, epilepsy and other neurological disorders.
CBD has demonstrable neuroprotective and neurogenic effects. Research is also being conducted to study the anti-cancer properties across the US and other parts of the world. Further evidence even suggests that CBD is safe when even taken at high doses.
