CBD Oil for Health
The History of Cannabidiol
There are evidences that ancient Romans and Greeks were also familiar with Cannabis. However, it was not because of the recreational use that they had known it for, as we commonly associate marijuana with. In fact, our predecessors used Cannabis as a fibre plant, cultivating it for clothing prior to the introduction of cotton. It had also been used for relieving pain during childbirth, toothaches, and eventually evolved into being used for making rope, paper and clothing.
In the middle ages, evidence of hemp, a subspecies of the plant Cannabis Sativa, were also found in Central Asia. This species was classified as Cannabis Sativa L, identified by botanist Carl Linnaeus and named after him.
Later, in the 1950’s, marijuana and hemp were both added to the same category because they were both products of the plant Cannabis. This categorization occurred due to the compound tetrahydrocannabinoid, or THC, which is popularly known for the impairment of cognitive abilities. Long term effects of using the marijuana extract as medicine may lead to other health conditions such as distorted perception, poor coordination and increased heart rate. Due to this and marijuana falling into the same category as hemp, it has been ignored and marginalised despite the many benefit health properties it has to offer us.
Through recent years, the scenario has significantly changed during the last two decades wherein several researches on the pharmacology of cannabis has suggested that hemp seeds don’t cause any psychotropic effects unlike it’s marijuana counterpart. Hemp’s unique nutritional profile offers many significant health and therapeutic benefits. The compound derived from hemp is what we commonly know as Cannabidiol, or CBD, and contains similar chemical profiles of the other cannabinoids.
The consumption of hemp seeds is also extremely beneficial when used as a health supplement, though it may also be used as a therapeutic supplement for both common and severe health conditions as well.
The Endocannabinoid System and Good Health
The Endocannabinoid is a cannabinoid system which is essential for overall good health. Cannabinoids are the natural chemicals produced by the body that interact within the Endocannabinoid System, or ECS. This internal bodily system communicates with messages when the synaptic neurons are activated, with the endocannabinoids as the chemical messengers of the ECS. It is composed of fat cells present in the neuron. Endocannabinoids get absorbed into the body through receptors called cannabinoid receptors that are attached to neurons. In several clinical researchers on live models it was found that Cannabidiol or CBD extracted from organic hemp can signal the body to make more endocannabinoids and build more cannabinoid receptors.
