What is CBD?
CBD is a non-psychoactive, hemp-derived cannabinoid with many potential health benefits. It is believed that CBD does not directly attach to receptors in the brain, as THC does to the CB1 receptor. Instead, it encourages your body to self-produce the necessary naturally occurring endocannabinoids in your body to reduce inflammation.
The anti-inflammatory properties of CBD, as shown in studies, offers a natural alternative to the treatment of chronic pain, as well as offering relief to many other conditions. Scientific and clinical research underscores CBD’s potential as a treatment for a wide range of conditions. It has also been shown to reduce the effects of withdrawal and similar conditions, though more research is needed to uncover all the benefits CBD has to offer.
Unlike other cannabinoids, CBD does not directly trigger CB1 or CB2 receptors in the body. Instead, the compound enhances the ability of these receptors to bind to other cannabinoids and occupies specific enzymes to increase your body’s endocannabinoid levels.
Full Spectrum CBD vs CBD Isolate
The cannabis plant produces over 113 cannabinoids and more than 31 terpinoids, among them CBD and THC. These compounds can work together to alter how CBD is absorbed and used by the body. The two most common forms of CBD oils and tinctures are Full Spectrum CBD and CBD Isolate, with varying benefits for each.
Full Spectrum CBD contains a combination of THC, CBD and other cannabinoids to offer a broader option for those who use CBD to ease symptoms. This is because, when combined, these cannabinoids create an entourage effect, allowing for the CBD to be more effective in easing symptoms for some people. It has been reported that Full Spectrum CBD can be more effective for those who have a previously built tolerance for cannabis compounds.
CBD Isolate is the purest form of naturally occurring CBD and has no psychoactive effects. It is made from carefully filtering hemp plant extract using CO2 extraction and is the cleanest, purest CBD product available. It is important to keep in mind that regardless of it being the purest product on the market, it is still possible for CBD Isolate to contain trace amounts of THC and other cannabinoids.
The anti-inflammatory properties of CBD as shown in studies offers a natural alternative to the treatment of chronic pain, as well as offering relief to many other conditions. Scientific and clinical research underscores CBD’s potential as a treatment for a wide range of conditions, including arthritis, diabetes, alcoholism, MS, schizophrenia, PTSD, depression, antibiotic-resistant infections, epilepsy, and other neurological disorders. It has also been shown to reduce effects of withdrawal and similar conditions, though more research is needed to uncover all the benefits CBD has to offer.
Due to the unique nature of CBD and how it can affect people individually, it is important to consult your doctor when choosing which CBD product is right for you. This is especially true in the case of using CBD in combination with pharmaceutical medications.
