CBD stands for cannabidiol, and It comes from the hemp plant, Cannabis. The hemp plant has more than 100 different cannabinoids in its flowers, buds, stems, and leaves, and cannabidiol is one of them. These cannabinoids interact with certain neurotransmitters in the brain and throughout the body. The human body possesses a system called the endocannabinoid system, or ECS. Natural endocannabinoids are produced and travel down throughout this system. The endocannabinoids are neurotransmitters, which are a type of chemical “key,” where the ECS possesses the locks that the endocannabinoids bind to, triggering numerous natural processes. The ECS system controls things like appetite, sleepiness, the way a person registers pain, and more.
CBD may ease symptoms associated with the following conditions:
- Insomnia and other sleep disorders
- Anxiety and stress
- Chronic pain
- Mood disorders.
There are many variables such as weight, individual body chemistry, product consistency, method of consumption and more that make a universally prescribed dosage an impossibility. Keep a daily consumption record noting time of day, amount taken, potency, brand etc. This practice will help you understand your how your body responds to CBD and how to dose to generate the highest return on your health.
These are recommendations from people's reviews:
- Chronic Pain: 30-80mg of Nano CBD.
- Sleep Disorders: 20mg-100mg of CBD.
- Anxiety: 20mg-80mg of Nano CBD.
Always look for the lab reports! They tell the whole story.
CBD will stay in someone’s system for about one week. People who have to get drug tested for work should stay away from CBD oils that contain THC since they can show up on a drug test as a positive result.
CBD oil is not covered under health insurance plans...Yet!
No, it is possible for anyone to purchase CBD oil from a reputable company, or to make their own.
Since CBD is non-toxic and produces a relaxing effect on the body, it meets the criteria as an adaptogen. Combining CBD with other adaptogenic herbs and plants could possibly increase and strengthen the impact of either substance.
Putting CBD oil in a diffuser is possible. But this will not give users the health benefits of the product.
CBD can be purchased in a variety of strains, flavors, and products. The method by which a person uses CBD depends on what they are trying to treat. As always, it’s critical to speak to a doctor first before trying CBD, especially if someone takes a prescription.
