What Is CBD?

CBD stands for cannabidiol. It is the second most prevalent of the active ingredients of cannabis (marijuana).

CBD has been used as a medicine by many cultures for thousands of years. CBD is not legal everywhere, but the number of states where it is legal has increased steadily to 36 states.

And since THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) was made illegal in the mid-30's, CBD has gained momentum as a beneficial supplement.

CBD stands out from other cannabinoids due to its lack of psycho-activity. In laymen's terms, a low usually accompanies the THC high from another cannabinoid, CBD. This attribute makes CBD highly tolerable and non-addictive, making it ideal for daily consumption.

CBD is harvested from the hemp plant. The hemp and marijuana plants are two varieties of cannabis. But there are several differences between the two.

Hemp contains high levels of CBD but low levels of THC. Marijuana is the reverse: it contains higher quantities of THC than CBD. But both varieties contain cannabidiol.

How Does CBD Work? What Does It Do?

To understand how CBD works, you must first know what the endocannabinoid system (ECS) is.

The ECS is composed of various chemical compounds known as cannabinoids. It's an intercellular signaling system that works with the immune system to protect the body from foreign invaders and increase homeostasis.

The ECS regulates various bodily functions, such as appetite, mood, pain senses, memory, sleep patterns, immune function, and motor control.
When there's an imbalance in your body, this can lead to pain and discomfort.

CBD has been found to positively influence the ECS.
In fact, using CBD products has been linked to various health benefits, such as pain relief and anxiety reduction.

CBD works by binding to cannabinoid receptors located throughout the central nervous system and immune system. This creates changes in your brain and immune function that help relieve common symptoms, such as inflammation, pain, anxiety, and seizures.

If you're looking for relief from ailments like arthritis, chronic pain, anxiety, depression, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, cancer, Alzheimer's disease, and others, CBD products can help. 

But, always consult your doctor first.

What Are the Benefits?

CBD has many benefits. For starters, it's completely natural and non-psychotropic, so there are no negative side effects and a very low chance of addiction.

And unlike THC, you can't get high from using CBD, because the cannabinoid doesn't have an affinity for CB1 receptors in your brain.

It's been shown that CBD can increase feelings of calm, peace, and balance in the body. CBD can also reduce the acute symptoms of social anxiety disorder, panic disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, and phobias.

But, the cannabinoid has also been credited with helping control seizures and reduce the number of unprovoked seizures by nearly 40%.

CBD may also help you sleep better. This is because it works with your body's natural sleep-wake cycle, or circadian rhythm.

It can improve insomnia by helping you stay asleep longer and reduce the number of times you wake up during the night.

But before consuming CBD, you should always talk to your doctor.

CBD popular products

Which CBD Products Are Best for Beginners?

You'll find CBD products in virtually every form imaginable. While some are designed to simply absorb into your body (such as oils or sprays), others can come in various forms.

CBD oil is as popular as ever, and you can even find CBD-infused creams and beauty products.

These items all work to provide the benefits of cannabidiol directly to your body's system, which allows it to absorb the compound. It can also be taken orally, by placing drops of the oil under your tongue or mixing it with food.

CBD is also present in vape juice, allowing you to take the benefits by inhaling vaporized CBD through a vape pen.

It can even be included in water bottles, iced coffee, iced tea, and smoothies.

If you're seeking relief from aches and pain, taking a CBD topical may help. These products are applied directly to your skin for fast results.

The best part about these items is that it won't make you feel high or "stoned" like THC would.

But, edibles are perfect for people who want a small burst of CBD instead of a continuous dose.

Luckily, there are plenty of food options, snacks, gummies, and drinks now infused with CBD.
