People have appreciated the health benefits of cannabis since the dawn of time.
This plant is used as a remedy for many ailments. Hemp, unlike marijuana, does not contain the narcotic substance THC, so it is not intoxicating. The secret of its strong therapeutic properties is another natural ingredient - cannabidiol or CBD in short.
CBD is one of over 100 compounds from a group of molecules called cannabinoids found naturally in hemp. CBD and THC are found in hemp in the highest concentrations - they are the most recognizable and best studied.
CBD is a completely safe ingredient in hemp that mimics the effects of naturally occurring substances in the human body. Substances with a similar effect and chemical structure can be found in the body of every human being, and even in mother’s milk.
CBD is a substance found in nature only in hemp.
By adding hemp products to your daily diet, you primarily satisfy your body in terms of its needs for phytonutrients, as well as many other substances, such as omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids.
CBD is a legal and the most important active substance in medical marijuana and cannabis, with a very wide field of action. Among the substances found in hemp, CBD has the strongest health properties. CBD hemp oil is non-psychoactive and can be used as a versatile therapeutic agent without fear of altering consciousness. Cannabidiol (CBD) has no side effects, is not intoxicating or addictive.
The endocannabinoid system is responsible for the effectiveness of cannabis in so many ailments and diseases. This system is the main centre responsible for the proper functioning of most organisms.
Cannabidiol stimulates nerve cells, harmonising and regulating the processes taking place in organisms. CBD supports proper functioning of the basic physiological processes of the human body: appetite, thirst, movement, memory, sleep, or sensation of pain.
CBD and other cannabinoids are the plant equivalents of human endocannabinoids. They imitate their action by stimulating CB1 and CB2 cannabinoid receptors. These receptors are found in all areas of our body, most often in the most innervated areas.
Thanks to this, the pharmacological effect of CBD can be felt almost immediately after application.
Hemp is not only cannabidiol (CBD), but also rich in other phytonutrients. To get the most benefit from hemp products, it is important to use full spectrum products that retain all the ingredients from the entire plant. Hemp contains much more than just CBD, which is also worth including in your diet. These are, among others, CBG, CBDA or CBN as well as terpenes, flavonoids, waxes. Only their content in hemp products creates the full synergy effect.
Cannabidiol is both a strong and mild medicinal substance that can bring very positive health effects when used on the body not only of humans but also animals. How to use CBD to get the best effects possible?
There are many ways of using plant-based CBD, you need to choose the most appropriate one depending on the desired result.
CBD oil orally under the tongue - the most common method of administering CBD.
Liquid oil allows you to precisely administer the drops. It ensures high bioavailability and quick absorption, so its effects are visible within 15 minutes at the latest. This is most beneficial from the point of view of human physiology.
In this way, some of the CBD is absorbed via the tongue mucosa directly into the bloodstream and some is metabolised in the liver after swallowing.
Additionally, to support the above methods of therapy, other cannabinoid-rich hemp products are also used, such as: various types of dried hemp, hemp pre-rolls, hemp capsules, pastes.
All this can enhance the treatment even more thanks to an even wider range of phytocannabinoids applied.
