WHAT IS CBD
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a non-psychoactive compound found in Hemp and Cannabis. It influences the release and uptake of neurotransmitters leading to many potential therapeutic uses.
Most of the Cannabidiol used medicinally is found in the least processed form of the cannabis plant, known as hemp. Hemp and marijuana come from the same plant, Cannabis Sativa, but they are very different.
Hemp, like marijuana, contains measurable amounts of a number of terpenes and cannabinoids, including CBD and THC.
However, the levels of THC in hemp oil are low enough not to be psychoactive, making hemp a legal, more viable alternative for many to high-THC medical marijuana.
HOW DOES IT WORK INTERNALLY
The Endocannabinoid System (ECS) is a network of receptors spread throughout the body that control many vital life functions.
Our body makes cannabinoids called endocannabinoids, that interact with the receptors, much like a lock and key. But most of us are deficient, a condition called Clinical Endocannabinoid Deficiency. This means the ECS is compromised because of poor nutrition and/or prolonged exposure to psychological and/or physical stress or disease.
Endocannabinoids, respond great to Phyto cannabinoids (Cannabis.) Together they can reignite a beaten down system, help keep receptors working at optimal capacity and help regain homeostasis.
We are wired for this plant, it’s like turning a key in a lock.
HOW DOES IT WORK EXTERNALLY
Skin has largest number of CB2 receptors. When CBD infused topicals are applied to the skin, it uses its anti-inflammatory properties to provide pain relief to a specific area.
CBD creams/lotions/oils/patches don’t act transdermally, don’t pass through skin and into bloodstream. (Needs an added emulsifier/chemical compound) Topically applied CBD is only absorbed into the top 3 layers of the skin.
CBD powerfully protects skin and neutralizes free radicals due to its numerous vitamins and fatty acids (omega-3 and omega-6) and their roles as antioxidants.
Studies show CBD has a high potential for treating skin conditions like eczema, psoriasis and acne by encouraging abnormal cell death.
WHAT WORKS BEST FOR WHAT
For pain management, both topical and oral CBD work well, typically proving the most effective relief when utilized together.
Ingested CBD assists in the diminishing of symptoms from pain, anxiety, depression, insomnia. AND it fights inflammation. Taken everyday like a vitamin is best. DOSING: Start Small – 5-12mg, in late afternoon, early evening. Measure how you feel. It affects everyone differently, most feel relaxed. Try small dose for a few days, take more if needed. Gradually increase dose until you find sweet spot where you feel improvement.
Topicals work great at reducing inflammation, managing arthritis, helping headaches, cramping and migraines. DOSING: Put it where it hurts and REPEAT! Use lots on 1st day until relief is felt, after use when needed. Pain Patches: Use on DRY skin on pain, can last 3 -4 days. Patches use energy fields so they cover a larger area.
