CBD Oil, and CBD infused products have become increasingly popular over the last couple years; but you may be wondering what exactly is it? Continue reading to learn CBD, its benefits, and why we, at Arizona’s Hope, love and advocate it!
What is CBD?
Cannabidiol, aka CBD, is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant. Although CBD is more commonly known as one of the major components of marijuana, the cannabinoid can also be found in Hemp.
CBD and marijuana are not the same thing; CBD Oil and CBD infused products do not get you high. Unlike THC, CBD does not bind to the cannabinoids in our brains that cause a euphoric state, better known as being high. Instead, CBD binds to the cannabinoids that are responsible for anti-inflammatory and immune enhancing effects.
Why We Advocate It
CBD can help the body work to its full potential, by optimizing your Endocannabinoid system. The use of CBD is believed to provide many medical and health benefits.
The anti-inflammatory properties of Hemp can be used to treat Crohn’s disease, Multiple Sclerosis, Diabetes, Fibromyalgia, Arthritis, Epilepsy, and Seizures. This property of Hemp can even help fight and prevent acne!
In addition, studies have found that Hemp can reduce the body’s natural response to fearful and stressful situations. CBD reduces your heart rate and blood pressure, which causes a calming effect. This is why so many people with anxiety or stress disorders use CBD instead of pharmaceutical drugs as a much healthier choice of medication.
