A LOT is the answer! In this FAQ you’ll find all the correct answers for the questions that you’ve been googling since seeing the CBD craze!
CBD may help manage conditions such as Anxiety, Chronic Inflammation, Alzheimer’s Disease, Arthritis, Colitis, Diabetes, Osteoporosis, and Epilepsy, just to name a few! In addition to its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, researchers have found that CBD has amazing anticonvulsant, antidepressant, anti-anxiety, antipsychotic, and neuroprotective qualities.
CBD is always matched to the person, not the condition. There is no "one size fits all" solution for any given condition. With CBD you have to understand that less is more. Start low and go slow. It's easier to understand your CBD “sweet spot” when micro-dosing. Remember to spread out your CBD intake throughout the day and be observant. Watch for changes in your mood, sleep, and health conditions to see what's working for you!
Breathe, the answer is YES!
In the same way CBD works for humans, it can also be helpful to all of our furry friends!
From helping to ease anxiety, to calming chronic inflammation, CBD can help!
They suffer from day to day struggles that they can't even speak on. Adding CBD to their diet could give them the relief they’ve been longing for!
CBD oils do not contain enough THC to get someone high or cause someone to be addicted to CBD.
On the contrary studies have shown that CBD has anti addictive properties which may help individuals wean off some drugs.
Our bodies naturally produce CBD in the endocannabinoid system in response to stress, hence one cannot be one addicted to his or her self.
While CBD has been shown to “be safe”, there are some key factors to keep in mind. First and foremost, always consult your physician. There are some medications which are metabolized in the liver that could be affected when using CBD. This is especially true with blood thinners and medication that cannot be combined with grapefruit.
The two main receptors in the body are CB1 and CB2. THC has a direct affect on these receptors while CBD has an indirect affect approach. CBD affects how these receptors signal the body and increases the production of the body’s own cannabinoids by blocking the enzymes that can break them down.
CBD also has an affect on other receptors in the brain and body.
Some of those include the opioid receptors and the serotonin receptors.
CBD keeps the receptors working at optimal capacity and helps the function of all other cannabinoids, including the body’s own endocannabinoids!
