How CBD Products Work

CBD oil is getting more and more popular as more and more research gets done about what it is, how it works, and how it can affect people. However, most average users don't understand how CBD works with the body. If you are one of them, you are in luck! It actually works fairly simply, so you don’t have to stay in the dark any longer.

What is CBD?

CBD is a cannabinoid that can be derived from any plant in the cannabis family. Cannabinoid is the general term for any of the hundreds of chemicals that help marijuana have its medicinal effects, but CBD will not make you feel high. Instead, it acts as a mild sedative. 

That is because CBD oil is most often derived from industrial hemp, which has a naturally low concentration of tetrahydrocannabinol also known as THC. In order to be sold legally in the United States, CBD products have to have a concentration of less than 0.3 percent THC, which would show up on a drug test for anyone who uses it.

What is the Endocannabinoid System?
CBD works with your endocannabinoid receptors help you to have a variety of different medical effects because the endocannabinoid system is spread out throughout your brain, central nervous system, and immune system.

Depending on what cannabinoids he would take, your receptors will react differently. CBD coats the receptors and stops them from reacting to many of the other cannabinoids in your body. This helps you to achieve a state of rest, which helps your happiest and healthiest.

This is how you get the relaxing benefits that you would expect from CBD without getting high from medical or recreational marijuana.

How Can CBD Impact You?

By working with your endocannabinoid system, CBD can help you to reduce any symptoms of anxiety you feel, help you to sleep, reduce the amount of extraneous inflammation that your body produces and help you to feel much better overall.  

However, how you take your CBD oil can change the way that it reacts to your body and potential side effects. There are three main methods of taking CBD - pure oil for ingestion or vaping, CBD-infused foods and drinks and CBD-infused lotions.

If you vape or smoke your CBD product, for example, you are putting yourself at further risk for lung diseases that come with smoking anything. It will, however, help you to feel the effects much more quickly than any other method. You can also be allergic to CBD if you have issues with other types of grass or any of the additives in your formulation, so make sure to test it before you ingest it.

While a lot of research has been done into the effects of CBD, it is not well regulated by the Food and Drug Administration at this time. That means you’ll need to make sure you are getting what you pay for by doing research into the product you buy and make sure that you are not breaking any state or local laws by using CBD.
