What are the health benefits of CBD?
Cannabidiol, also known as CBD, is an all natural molecule that shows great promise in many areas.
Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the main psychoactive cannabinoid found in cannabis and causes the sensation of getting "high" that is often associated with marijuana.
CBD, unlike THC, is not psychoactive and does not cause a high. CBD provides all the same medical benefits as marijuana without the negative side effects. This makes CBD more appealing to anyone looking to take advantage of its healing properties without the mind-altering effects of marijuana or other pharmaceutical drugs.
"The "Arthritis Foundation" http://blog.arthritis.org/news/patients-tell-us-cbd-use conducted its own poll and found that 29% reported current use of CBD (mostly in liquid or topical form), and nearly 80% of respondents were either using it, had used it in the past, or were considering it. Of those using it, most reported improvement in physical function, sleep, and well-being; of note, a minority reported improvement in pain or stiffness."
What should you look for in CBD?
When choosing a CBD brand, you should make sure their products are made using industrial hemp, contain full spectrum extract, and are third-party lab tested.
Although industrial hemp and marijuana both come from the cannabis plant, they differ greatly genetically and in how they are grown. Industrial hemp comes from the non-psychoactive variety of the cannabis plant, which contains 0.3% THC or less. Because of the low THC content, industrial hemp should not get you high.
Full Spectrum CBD
The benefits of whole hemp oil come from hundreds of naturally occurring cannabinoids like CBD, CBG, CBN, terpenes, and flavonoids. When these compounds are combined they produce the entourage effect, an amplification of the plant's benefits. Full spectrum extracts are considered to be more effective than isolated single-molecule compounds.
