"CBD" is short for "Cannabidiol," which is one of the hundreds of cannibinoids found in the cannabis hemp plant. While not medically proven, users of CBD say that it helps to reduce stress, anxiety, and inflammation along with promoting better sleeping patterns.
Within your body is an Endocannabinoid System (ECS) that helps to promote the balance of important functions like your mood, immune system and sleep. When you experience things like physical and mental stress, the ECS is at work to maintain the homeostasis and balance of those functions. And because your body naturally produces these endocannabinoids, they are susceptible to deficiencies. CBD helps to block the breakdowns that cause these deficiencies, thus allowing your body to get the most from its ECS.
No, CBD is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid. The feeling of being high comes from the THC cannabinoid, and there is typically only trace amounts of it found in CBD oils and full spectrum hemp extracts.
“Full Spectrum” means that the hemp oil contains more than just CBD and that all of the plant’s cannabinoids and terpenes are extracted. Many users attest that when CBD works with all of its counterparts, there is an increase in product effectiveness. All of the cannabinoids working is synergy is known as the “entourage effect.” Conversely, products made with CBD “isolate” only contain CBD.
