CBD: What You Need to Know
As a non-psychoactive cannabinoid procured from hemp, CBD offers an exciting and diverse range of potential health and wellness benefits. As opposed to THC which attaches directly to the CB1 receptor in the brain, CBD is believed to naturally encourage the body to produce endocannabinoids, helpful compounds that aid with inflammation and swelling. Additionally, CBD is believed to have a positive correlation with improved mood, memory, sleep, and aptitude.
According to scientific research, field experimentation, and clinical testing, CBD could also host a versatile range of potential health treatments. As a result, this hemp-derived compound could be a viable treatment option for chronic pain, alcoholism, diabetes, arthritis, PTSD, schizophrenia, depression, epilepsy, neurological disorders, and infections where antibiotics are ineffective.
Additionally, CBD is frequently used to combat anxiety, insomnia, and high blood pressure. As a result, CBD users report falling asleep faster, staying asleep longer, and feeling well-rested upon waking up.
CBD is available in a wide range of forms, including topical creams for pain relief, ointments, tinctures, edibles, and vape pens. The difference between each variant depends on the goals of the user, how long they desire the effects, and how fast they want to experience relief.
Overall, exciting new research and developments are occurring within the cannabis industry on a daily basis. We are truly only in the beginning phases, as new CBD properties that boast health and wellness benefits are still being unearthed.
