Interested in Wanting to Know What CBD Oil Is After Hearing Everyone Talk About It?
We hear CBD being talked about everywhere. People are recommending it to others, and brands are promoting their product on social media, billboards, and in any other way they can legally advertise to consumers.
But what exactly are the benefits of CBD that everyone keeps talking about?
CBD stands for cannabidiol. Cannabidiol is one of the cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. Cannabinoids are compounds that interact with the bodies’ endocannabinoid system in order to promote homeostasis within the body.
Your Body Already Has The Endocannabinoid System
The endocannabinoid system consists of receptors in many places throughout the human body such as our nervous system, digestive system, and brain. Because of the endocannabinoid systems’ multiple access points, cannabinoids such as CBD can help people find relief for a wide variety of ailments.
CBD Won’t Get You High
Won’t CBD get you high? Nope. In fact, it is law in the United States that any CBD product cannot contain more than 0.3% THC. This amount is not nearly enough to get a CBD user high.
The NCBI published a study proving CBD’s effectiveness in treating Dravet syndrome, a condition that causes convulsive seizures. In the placebo group, the seizures’ averages went from 14.9 to 14.1 over a 14-week period of time. Those patients given CBD had a drastic decrease in their average amount of seizures, going from 12.4 to 5.9 over the same 14-week period.
This is just one example of a symptom CBD has been acclaimed to help. Users report CBD’s aid with sleep, anxiety, chronic pain and more.
CBD oil can be taken in many ways. Some prefer to take it sublingually, Latin for “under the tongue”, in an oil form. Those suffering from chronic pain have found relief in using CBD salves on their skin. They feel it can truly target their pain areas because they choose where the CBD is applied. Legends personally carries bath bombs, face masks, throat lozenges, and more in addition to the salve and oil.
