What is CBD?
As the legalization of our favorite hemp plant is beginning to make waves in many states in the US, many wonder, “What is CBD and why do so many people enjoy consuming it?”
CBD is short for cannabidiol, which is a chemical compound found in the hemp plant. CBD is a naturally occurring substance that is used in products such as oils and edibles that provides a feeling of relaxation. CBD is non-psychoactive and will not cause any feelings of intoxication, so you won’t feel a sense of euphoria. Instead, you’ll feel at peace and calm with yourself and your surroundings!
CBD is derived from the hemp plant through a process called carbon dioxide extraction. This is when scientists use carbon dioxide to separate the oil from the hemp plant through a highly pressurized environment. This process will maximize the amount of CBD extracted to use for CBD products.
How Does CBD Work?
CBD is able to provide the feelings of pain relief, peace, and relaxation by working with our endocannabinoid system. The endocannabinoid system is a complex biological system in the human body that affects our appetite, sleep, mood, memory, and many more. Our endocannabinoid system consists of three components - receptors, enzymes, and endocannabinoids. These parts function whether CBD is used or not! Isn’t that cool?
CBD does not interact directly with our cannabinoid receptors (CB1 and CB2). Instead, CBD stimulates the endocannabinoid system to produce its own cannabinoids. It also slows their breakdown by inhibiting the FAAH enzyme (fatty acid amide hydrolase enzyme) so the endocannabinoids can stay in your body for longer periods of time.
CBD also operates on 60 different molecular pathways and will affect your serotonin receptors, immune system, vanilloid receptors (pain receptors), and more. Though Cloud 9 Smoke Co cannot make any medical claims in regards to CBD, there are many health-conscious consumers that choose CBD as a supplement to their daily routine.
CBD has been found to help with a variety of health disorders including pain, epilepsy, cancer, insomnia, cancer, cardiovascular disease, intestinal disease, depression, and anxiety. As CBD is gaining momentum in the world of health and wellness, Cloud 9 Smoke Co has the breakdown of how CBD helps with certain bodily issues and functions.
CBD can help to reduce chronic pain by impacting the endocannabinoid receptor activity, reducing inflammation, and interacting with neurotransmitters. Several studies have shown that CBD has helped to reduce pain resulting from arthritis and multiple sclerosis. CBD has become a popular choice for pain management as a natural alternative to pain medication that contains opioids.
Anxiety and Depression
CBD can help to reduce anxiety and depression due to its ability to act on the brain’s receptors for serotonin, which is a neurotransmitter that regulates mood and social behavior. CBD has an interesting effect on the body and creates a sense of calmness that reminds us that we are safe. While CBD may not rid of these mental illnesses completely, it can be a natural substance to help with symptoms. Additionally, CBD is an additional natural supplement for those who are prescribed medication for anxiety and depression that has adverse side effects such as insomnia, agitation, sexual dysfunction, and headache.
CBD can help to reduce cancer-related symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, pain, and decreased appetite. This is due to CBD’s ability to impact our molecular pathways in our body to reduce nausea and vomiting while creating a sense of relaxation during chemotherapy.
CBD has not been proven to treat or cure cancer, and all patients should resume treatment as planned. CBD is meant to be a natural supplement and is not approved to treat or cure any disease or illness.
