Cannabidiol (CBD) is a cannabis plant compound known to have significant medical benefits, but it does not make people feel “stoned.”
The fact that CBD-rich cannabis is non-psychoactive makes it an appealing option for clients looking for relief from inflammation, pain, anxiety, psychosis, seizures, spasms, and other conditions, without the disconcerting feelings of lethargy or dysphoria.
The process of extracting CBD is the same as the extraction of essential oils. The concentrations and uses of these oils vary. Some common CBD products are tinctures taken sublingually or added to water, as well as oils and lotions used topically.
How does CBD work?
Cannabidiols (CBD) attach to Cannabinoid Receptors, located throughout the body, which are part of the Endocannabinoid System. The endocannabinoid system is involved in a variety of physiological processes including appetite, pain sensation, mood, and memory. Endocannabinoids are the substances our bodies naturally make to stimulate our bodies' ability to self-heal.
All cannabinoids, including CBD, produce effects in the body by attaching to certain receptors.The human body has two types of receptors for cannabinoids, CB1 receptors and CB2 receptors.
CB1 receptors in the brain deal with coordination and movement, pain, emotions, mood, thinking, appetite, and memories, among other factors. CB2 receptors are more common in the immune system. They affect inflammation and pain.
What are the benefits of CBD?
CBD’s anti-inflammatory properties tends to make it an ideal, organic solution for pain reduction and relief from inflammation-caused skin and gut issues.
It has also been shown to be an effective, natural remedy for people suffering from anxiety, including post-traumatic stress disorder, panic disorder, social anxiety disorder, and obsessive-compulsive disorder.
In June 2018, the FDA approved the use of CBD oil in a drug (Epidiolex) for people suffering from epileptic seizures. There is also promising research that CBD can help with smoking cessation and opioid addiction.
Researchers are currently looking at CBD as a possible accompaniment to standard cancer treatments, as well as aiding Alzheimer’s patients in memory cognition and retention.
Is CBD marijuana? Will it get me high?
No, using CBD oil will not make you feel high. CBD is a non-psychoactive extract from the marijuana plant. However, it does include trace amounts of THC (0.03%) which is allowed by the federal government. THC is the component in marijuana with psychoactive properties. The miniscule amount of THC found in CBD oil, however, will not make you feel “stoned.”
CannaBodyDirect also offers completely Non-THC CBD isolate lotion as an alternative to the Full Spectrum Lotion which contains 0.03% THC.
Is CBD oil legal?
It’s difficult to argue the medicinal benefits of CBD. As more people become aware of the benefits of this compound, it’s likely we’ll begin to see further changes in its legal status. As it currently stands, CBD oil derived specifically from hemp is legal in the majority of the United States.
Will I pass a drug test if I use CBD?
Worried about a drug test? Since there are only trace amounts of THC found in CBD-rich hemp oil, in most cases it will not cause a positive drug test when consumed at suggested servings. Most tests do not detect the presence of CBD (cannabidiol).
Anyone who is concerned about having a positive drug test should avoid consuming CBD oil, including CannaBodyDirect CBD oil products. We recommend that you not ingest CBD oil before talking with your healthcare, employer, or drug screening company.
CannaBodyDirect also offers completely NON-THC CBD isolate lotion as an alternative to the Full Spectrum lotion which contains 0.03% THC.
