The Guide to CBD
Sharing this for individuals who are new to CBD and seeking an introductory understanding. While the information can be overwhelming, it offers a comprehensive overview of CBD.
1. What is CBD?
CBD, short for Cannabidiol, is one of the many cannabinoids present in the cannabis plant. Unlike THC(tetrahydrocannabinol), it doesn’t cause intoxication and is commonly used in food supplements and skincare products. The World Health Organization has deemed it safe as a food supplement, stating that it is well-tolerated with a good safety profile.
2. Facts about CBD
-CBD doesn’t induce a “high” as it is non-intoxicating. THC, found in full-spectrum CBD products in low levels, is responsible for the intoxicating effects.
-CBD is considered psychoactive since it interacts with the brain and nervous system, but it doesn’t intoxicate users like THC. Extensive studies have found no signs of addiction potential for CBD, as it doesn’t bind directly with the body’s chemical receptors as THC does.
-CBD won’t impair driving ability, as it is a non-intoxicating cannabinoid. However, some CBD oils may contain trace amounts of THC, which, if too high, could lead to intoxication.
-CBD won’t show up on a drug test because standard tests only detect THC. To avoid testing positive, it is essential to ensure that CBD products have low THC content or are THC-free (broad-spectrum).
-Hemp is a type of cannabis plant containing less than 0.2% THC. It is utilized for various purposes, such as seeds for cooking oil, stalks for fibers, and flowers/leaves for CBD-rich supplements.
-CBD oil is derived from the entire cannabis plant (leaves, flowers, stalks, and seeds), while hemp oil is pressed from industrial hemp seeds and doesn’t contain CBD.
3. How CBD works
-Although there is more to learn about CBD’s mechanisms, it is believed to interact with the endocannabinoid system (ECS) in the human body.
-The ECS consists of chemical receptors, endocannabinoids (naturally occurring cannabinoids in humans), and enzymes that work together to maintain body balance in various situations.
-CBD does not directly bind with endocannabinoid receptors like THC does. Instead, it binds with nearby enzymes that usually break down the endocannabinoid anandamide, preventing its breakdown.
-As a result, anandamide levels increase, enabling the body to promptly address issues and restore a healthy balance.
