CBD is available in products everywhere nowadays. But what is it and does it work? In this blog post, we’ll explore how CBD works, how it’s revolutionizing the way we think about wellness, and why you should consider using it. In this blog post from New River Botanicals, we’ll explore what CDB is, how it works, and how it’s changing the way we think about wellness.
What Exactly Is CBD Oil?
Cannabidiol is a natural compound found in the cannabis plant and contains concentrated resin glands of flowering cannabis plants, specifically the hemp plant for low THC levels. CBD is not psychoactive, and it’s used to achieve balance and peace in the body without the “high” from THC. It combines the cannabinoid-rich resin extract from hemp plants with a carrier oil such as MCT coconut oil.
How CBD Oil Works
All humans have a naturally occurring endocannabinoid system with receptors spread throughout our bodies. Our bodies naturally produce cannabinoids that act as messenger cells. There are cannabinoid receptors located on the surface of nearly all cells and it is thought that CBD oil binds to these receptors.
CDB and The Wellness Revolution
CBD exploded onto the scene in the early 2000s after a story about a girl with Dravet Syndrome who had success in managing her symptoms with CBD oil. Since then we have seen a rise in the popularity of products made with CBD and their various benefits. With good reason too. It’s an all-natural product that helps you feel calm and centered.
