How CBD Works to Improve Your Wellness

CBD usage was low in the past, primarily due to restrictions that governments had set to inhibit its usage. This was majorly attributed to the fact that most people negatively associated CBD usage with Cannabis usage.

However, now things have changed for the better. With the increase in information, researchers have managed to prove that CBD is beneficial to human beings. This has revolutionized everything. For that reason, the CBD industry has been steadily growing, and soon, it will reclaim its position in the world economy.

Today, we shall look at how CBD works and how using may benefit you.

What is the master “oversight” system?

I bet you never knew that you had a system within you called the endocannabinoid system. Just as the name suggests, the endocannabinoid system is a complex biological system within the human body.

It was discovered in the early 1990s by medical researchers. Since then, researchers have been researching extensively to try and figure out how this system works.

At the moment, they have been able to establish that the endocannabinoid system AKA ( the oversight system), is responsible for major processes in your body. We are talking about your sleep, mood, appetite, and other major processes that constitute your wellbeing.

The endocannabinoid system has three main components.

  1. Receptors
  2. Enzymes
  3. Endocannabinoids

By interacting with these components, CBD will help you attain wellness in no time.

What are some of the CBD wellness benefits?

CBD comes with a lot of natural wellness benefits. As you have just learned what the “oversight” system is responsible for, it will be worth it that you also know that CBD works in association with your endocannabinoid system to help you achieve wellness in your life.

By working in close relation with the receptors, enzymes, and endocannabinoids in your system, CBD helps your body achieve homeostasis. This, of course, comes with major wellness benefits like:

  1. Relieved anxiety
  2. Countering depression
  3. Treating insomnia
  4. Reducing stress levels
  5. Improved concentration
  6. Reduced unhealthy appetite

Studies also show that CBD also treats conditions such as stroke and heart problems.

How does CBD compare to Hemp oil?

People have found it difficult to tell apart the difference between CBD and Hemp oil in the recent past. So if you thought that you were in this confusion alone, you are wrong.

It is a known fact that CBD and Hemp oil are extracted from the Cannabis sativa plant. However, how CBD is extracted from the Cannabis sativa plant is different from how Hemp oil is extracted.

CBD oil is extracted from the leaves, flowers, and stalk of the Cannabis sativa plant. On the other hand, hemp oil is extracted from the seeds of the same plant.

Another significant difference between the two is that hemp oil has little to no amounts of CBD.

Everything you need to know about Hemp oil AKA (Hempseed oil)

Just like CBD, hempseed oil is also a byproduct of the hemp plant. Hempseed oil is made by extraction from hempseeds through cold-pressing.

Hempseed oil has very little to no Tetrahydrocannabinol “THC’ the chemical responsible for getting you high. So, by taking it, you are sure that you won’t get high. Instead, hempseed oil has large amounts of omega-3, omega-6, and other components that have nutritional value to your body.

If taken as prescribed, hempseed oil helps fight illnesses such as cardiovascular diseases, Alzheimer’s disease and reduces inflammations in the body.

Stellar benefits of CBD water

CBD water has likewise been gaining popularity in the recent past. Even though it contains low amounts of CBD, you may still benefit from it when used as prescribed. For instance:

1. It may help you reduce anxiety

CBD water contains low amounts of CBD, which, when used in the right amount, interacts with the endocannabinoid system receptors to help reduce anxiety. You see, there are two types of receptors: the CB1 and CB2 receptors, which are found in the brain.

When CBD interacts with these receptors, it helps reduce cortisol levels in the brain, thus helping reduce anxiety.

2. It may help you recover from your workout

Everyone can relate to how sore you can become after working out. Since CBD has properties that reduce inflammation, it is said that CBD water can also help you overcome muscle soreness that may come about from intense workouts.

3. It may help reduce headaches and migraines

Through interaction with the CB1 and CB2  receptors, CBD water could also help in reducing mild to severe migraines. However, more studies are being conducted to help understand the mechanism behind this process.

Nature + Nanotechnology

Nanotechnology is a scientific process that involves breaking down CBD molecules into nanoscopic dimensions. You see, by nature, CBD is lipophilic. This means that its oil-based compounds do not bind well with water molecules; thus, absorbing them into the body would be very difficult.

To solve this problem, nanotechnology breaks down cannabinoids into nanoparticles. When in this state, the CBD nanoparticles can bond with lipids and water molecules making it easier to be absorbed into the bloodstream.

The power of pure fruit

If you are not looking forward to using CBD products, you can attain the same health benefits of CBD usage by taking pure fruits.

Pure fruits also contain potent vitamins and minerals, which will help boost your health significantly when absorbed by your body. Fruits also contain antioxidants and flavonoids, which help reduce the risk of developing heart diseases and inflammations when taken in the right amount.

Even with the fruits you see, you can attain wellness in your life.

Flavor with function

As you would expect, CBD oil comes in various flavors. We have the Natural flavored CBD oil, the sweeter berry-flavored CBD oil, the lemon-flavored CBD oil alongside various flavors.

Everyone can use CBD oil that is flavored with the flavor that they prefer to use. The good thing about this is that there is no flavored CBD oil that is more functional than the other. All flavors have the same functional components.

With that in mind, you can now freely use whichever flavor you feel like using, as all flavors are equally functional.

Conclusion

Attaining wellness entails a lot. However, with the right information at your disposal, you may be able to attain wellness sooner than you expect. We would like to encourage you to keep up with your journey towards attaining healthy wellness by using CBD oil.
