What is CBD oil?
CBD or cannabidiol is one of several compounds, known as cannabinoids, that are found in the cannabis or hemp plant. CBD oils contain concentrations of cannabidiol.
There is a system in the body known as the endocannabinoid system. When we are in good health, our bodies produce small amounts of our own cannabis, called anandamide, which interacts with receptors in the body to encourage homeostasis. So, when we take an external version of CBD this effectively interacts with our endocannabinoid system and gets it working again to restore balance.
What is CBD oil good for?
There’s vast industry research being done to address many health issues like epilepsy, autism, anxiety/depression, diabetes and autoimmune diseases. CBD can work within minutes and has many other useful qualities too. However, it can take 8-12 weeks to get optimum results so do be patient.
How do I choose CBD product?
To ensure the CBD oil is the highest quality, make sure it is made from a full spectrum plant extract.
And more importantly, you need to stop checking percentages of the full bottle and study what you get per dose!
