What Does CBD Oil Do? An Intro to Understanding CBD

You may have seen all of the hype around CBD Oil. However, you're not entirely sure what CBD does or why it is effective. If you're curious about where all the build up comes from then you'll be pleased to know multiple studies have found CBD to positively support different systems within the body. These recent findings have increased CBD's visibility in the mainstream media and led to a host of different applications for the product. 

First off, CBD from hemp has no psychoactive effects, which make it an ideal option for people seeking the benefits of cannabis products without experiencing a high or breaking any laws. Secondly, there is a long list of potential bodily impacts from CBD oil. Below is a short list of what CBD can do and how it can impact your life!

Promotes Healthy Joints.

Assists with Mental Wellness.

    Promotes Healthy Skin. 

    Works to Improve Heart Health.

    Boosts the Immune System.

    Relieves Menstrual Cramps.

    Encourages Restful Sleep.

    Relieves Tension and/or Sore Muscles.

    And so much more!

    CBD is effective due to its ability to affect the Endocannabinoid System (ECS), which is an entire-body system that is responsible for regulating nearly every other system in the body.  CBD effectually improves the ECS by lowering FAAH and therefore increasing anandamide, a neurotransmitter synthesized in areas of the brain that are important for memory, motivation, movement control, and higher order thinking.  Anandamide also plays an important role in pain tolerance, appetite and fertility.

    Clinical research on CBD is relatively new, but is already showing promising results for aiding the body in recovering from a variety of health issues.  The sky is the limit on how the body can respond in a positive way towards health and wellness with the use of CBD. We will be detailing in-depth studies and research in upcoming articles, but we wanted to give a basic overview for those new to the realm of CBD wellness and homeostasis.
