The science behind CBD
WHAT IS CBD? HOW IS IT DIFFERENT THAN THC?
CBD, or cannabidiol, is one of the cannabinoid compounds, called ligands, which are in cannabis. Unlike THC, CBD does not cause a high. It is a type of a ligand, a type of chemical that binds to neuroreceptors in the body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS). While the body produces endocannabinoids, the ligands that bind to and regulate the ECS, CBD mimics the effects of endocannabinoids.
Research is still being done to find how effective CBD is for treating mental illnesses, but the findings show potential for treating conditions like OCD, anxiety, and even post-traumatic stress disorder. It has been used successfully in controlling the frequency and severity of convulsive epileptic seizures. It may even help sufferers of autoimmune disorders by suppressing the immune system.
Cannabidiol can be extracted from two plants: marijuana and hemp. While these plants are closely related, hemp does not have anywhere near as much THC as marijuana, even though it can have similar levels of CBD. Cannabis can be bred in order to lower THC and have much higher levels of CBD.
Unlocking Nature's Potential
The Endocannabinoid System
The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a system of neurotransmitters and receptors throughout the body. It effects both the central nervous system, which includes the nerves of the brain and spinal cord, and the peripheral nervous system, which controls in things in the body like motor functions and the function of the internal organs. In other words, the ECS is a major part of neurological functions in the voluntary and involuntary processes in the body like the movement of both skeletal and smooth muscles respectively.
It plays a role in both the functions of the mind and the body. When we exercise, the ECS is part of what produces the effect commonly called runner’s high.
The ECS is what processes endocannabinoids, the neurotransmitters your body produces, but also ones from plants like marijuana. The use of THC and CBD (cannabidiol), two phytocannabinoids found in marijuana, has been found to help treat conditions like epilepsy, cancer, anxiety, and nausea because these effect the nervous system by binding to the same endocannabinoid receptors in the body. CBD has been found to be more effective in the treatments of these conditions, and CBD vape oil and tinctures are two ways people often take CBD.
HOW AND WHY TO USE CBD
There are a number of ways to use CBD. It can be taken in the form of gummy candies and other edibles, tinctures, and patches. Because CBD does not cause a high and can help with a variety of conditions like, chronic migraines, arthritis and widespread chronic disorders like fibromyalgia, many people can benefit from using it. The integration of terpenes can change the effects of the CBD to enhance specific benefits such as anti-inflammation, improved sleep, and feelings of calm. Terpenes are part of what causes different strains of cannabis to have different effects and flavors.
The evidence is strongest for CBD’s use treating epilepsy. It has been proven to reduce the frequency, duration, and severity of convulsive seizures that cannot be effectively or safely treated using other medications. Because it works on the central nervous system, CBD can effectively “calm down” parts of the brain overexcited and damaged by epilepsy.
Because CBD is extracted and then transformed to vape oil, tinctures, edibles, pills, and patches, it is important to remember that concentrations are not always the same, even if the label seems to say otherwise, and it is important to make sure, for example, the percentage of CBD in vape oil is consistent. Health Synergy’s products have passed quality control testing by EVIO Labs and the reports are available on our website.
Vape oil is an effective method, and well known, but tinctures have been just as, if not more effective. One of the first applications of a high-CBD/low-THC tincture was for the treatment of Charlotte Figi, a girl who has a rare type of epilepsy called Dravet’s syndrome and began having grand-mal seizures when she was just an infant.
Terpenes significantly enhance the elements of CBD hemp oils.
