What Is Cannabidiol or CBD?

CBD or Cannabidiol is one of the most widely studied exogenous cannabinoids produced by both industrial hemp and cannabis plants.

CBD works with the human endocannabinoid system to produce many of the holistic benefits of medical marijuana – but without any psychoactive effects from THC.

Studies published by the US Department of Health & Human Services show that cannabinoid receptors are “found at central and peripheral levels of the pain pathways” and that  these receptors or “endocannabinoids” are “the brain’s own cannabis-like substances which serve as synaptic circuit breakers and regulate multiple physiological and pathological conditions including food intake regulation, immunomodulation, inflammation, analgesia (pain), cancer, addictive behavior, epilepsy and others.

The report concludes that “Endocannabinoids modulate pain under physiological conditions.” and  phytocannabinoids have efficacy in the treatment of various chronic pain conditions with greatest promise as a therapeutic adjunct in treating peripheral and central neuropathic pain and inflammation-mediated chronic pain.

Hemp plants are naturally high in CBD and low in THC – the psychoactive component in medical cannabis. In fact, studies have shown that CBD can actually counteract the psychoactivity of THC.

The only material difference between the cannabis sativa plant and hemp plant is that hemp plants must contain less than 0.3% THC to be considered legal for industrial use.

Hemp produced for industrial use is a valuable and reliable source of hemp-derived CBD oil, CBD capsules, CBD tinctures, CBD salve or balms, CBD vape cartridges and related cannabidiol based products that are sold legally in retail and holistic medical facilities across all 50 US states and online.

The amazing benefits of nature’s organic cure have been widely reported in the media and studies from the US Department of Health & Human Service as well as some of the most respected institutions in the world.

”The entourage effect is the term used to describe enhancement of efficacy, with related improvement in overall therapeutic effectiveness, derived from combining phytocannabinoids and other plant-derived molecules.”

“The synergistic contributions of cannabidiol to Cannabis pharmacology—and specifically analgesia—have been scientifically demonstrated.”

“Ongoing studies show that [the terpene] β-caryophyllene is effective at reducing neuropathic pain in a CB2 receptor-dependent manner.”

“Putting these pharmacologic, clinical, and societal issues together, the direction for the future resides in the development of orally administered, highly bioavailable, non-psychoactive phytocannabinoid products that also take advantage of the entourage effect, to provide the millions of people living with debilitating pain a comparatively safe and effective form of relief.”
