Before we keep going, check out other parts of our series on CBD, especially our post on what the exact differences between Hemp and Cannabis are.
Both are the same plant, but are used for completely different things.
We are going to be referring to them a lot so make sure you know which is which.
CBD is one of the several dozen phytocannabinoids that are found in the cannabis plant. It is a molecule that can be used to heal several different health conditions. It might sound similar to THC but is different for one huge reason:
CBD has no psychoactive effects so it does not get you “high”. It can’t be used recreationally -- so public opinion views it much more favorably than marijuana.
The CBD found in Hemp is identical to the CBD found in Cannabis. One of the biggest differences between the plants is that there just isn’t enough THC in hemp to get you high. However, both still have CBD.
CBD has become so popular in the medical community that over +1,000 studies are conducted on it each year.
Some studies claim it is extremely at fighting everything from cancer to seizures. It can also be used to counteract Cannabis’s psychoactive properties. CBD and other molecules found in cannabis are so effective because they work with your endocannabinoid system (ECS).
Your ECS is essential for regulating everything from your movements, to your interactions with other people. It affects all of your organs, your breathing pattern, and nervous and immune systems.
CBD gives your ECS the nutrients and energy to do what mother nature designed it to do: regulate your ENTIRE body and keep you healthy.
