CBD 101

CBD (aka Cannabidiol) has been somewhat of a trending topic lately and we’re sure you’ve heard about it by now but if by some chance you haven’t, hello! We’re here to teach you about and answer all your CBD questions and help you become an expert on the topic! First things first, what IS CBD?  CBD is one of 60 compounds that come from 1 compound in cannabis, called cannabinoids. These cannabinoids have a variety of medicinal and therapeutic effects that marijuana offers. Does it get you high? No. An important trait of CBD is that it lacks psycho-activity! Is it legal?  Yes! Due to its lack of THC, and psycho-activity it’s legal. Every state that hasn’t legalized marijuana for medical use has some kind of law allowing people to obtain and use CBD-only (or low-THC) products for medical or therapeutic uses. What does it really do? When you use CBD the cannabinoids link automatically to our endocannabinoid system and essentially stimulate changes in the body! Research has proven that CBD can stop:
  • Epileptic seizures
  • Relieve pain
  • Treat Alzheimer’s
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Parkinson’s
CBD does this by protecting your nerve cells, this is called “neuroprotective effect”
  • Reduce inflammation and acne (also with its neuroprotective effect)
  • Treat mood disorders
Such as; PTSD (a study in 2013 says CBD helped people forget traumatic events), anxiety and other stress disorders. A study in 2015 revealed that CBD has powerful tumor-inhibiting effects. Cannabidiol will make it harder for cancer cells to grow and in some cases causes an increase in cancer cell death!
