Why are CBD products impacting so many lives? Learn more about this natural remedy to some of our most common ailments

  • 29 March, 2019

Everyone seems to be talking about CBD these days. From celebrities to athletes, from the elderly to the young, the popularity of CBD appears to cross all generations and lifestyles. So why all the noise about CBD? Why are so many turning to CBD for issues like pain, anxiety, insomnia, seizures and a host of other ailments?

First let’s explore some facts. CBD or (cannabidiol) is a compound found in all cannabis plants. Today, most often when you buy a CBD product it is derived from a cannabis plant known as Hemp.

The Hemp plant, often confused with Marijuana, has very little THC but is rich in CBD. This is important because THC, (tetrahydrocannabinol) is the compound in marijuana that can get you high. Conversely, CBD is non-psychoactive, meaning, it does not get you high. The 2018 Farm Bill separated agricultural Hemp from Marijuana, making products derived from the Hemp plant no longer considered a controlled substance. This was largely based on research over the last 20 years revealing the benefits of CBD, and other Hemp derived products, while having zero psychoactive effect on the body. Summarizing the facts helps us understand that CBD is not marijuana, doesn’t get you high, and is legal based on federal law.

But why are people getting such extraordinary results from using CBD products? To answer that, we need to understand one of the most important systems in our bodies, the endocannabinoid system or ECS. Amazingly, this powerful system that supports our neurological and immune system was only discovered in the last several decades.

The ECS has receptors in our brain, nervous system and immune system. When these receptors are being consistently fueled with cannabinoids, something our bodies produce naturally, our systems function at a high level. When the system is at a high level it creates balance or homeostasis within our bodies. Think about when our brain, nervous system and immune system are in balance, life is good.

However, with age, stress, toxins in our foods and environment, along with many other negative factors that we navigate daily, our bodies ability to produce these endocannabinoids becomes compromised. This causes our ECS to not function at its best. The ultimate result is we begin to lose that harmony or balance and with that comes many unwanted symptoms that dramatically impact our ability to enjoy the quality of life we all desire.

This leads to why CBD products can be so effective. Being derived from the Hemp plant that is rich with cannabinoids; these plant-based cannabinoids began to feed those receptors in our ECS. The result is many people who make CBD products part of their daily regiment find they get relief from chronic pain, anxiety, or they even enjoy a good night’s sleep for the first time in years. These are life changing results for many and they happen because the body is now being fueled with the right stuff so that it can heal itself.

Many people ask if they should be taking a CBD product and the answer may be yes, but most importantly, you need to learn more about CBD from a reputable business that sell these products.
