Ok, Sooo… What Is CBD?
Cannabidiol (pronounced: can–ib–eh–dial) is a powerfully medicinal component of the cannabis plant which helps balance and optimize functionality in every major system of the human body. In fancier terms, CBD promotes homeostasis—the way our bodies stay regulated and healthy, even in times of severe stress, illness, and injury—throughout the mind and body.
Yes, of course, this comes from the cannabis plant; but in NO way does CBD oil produce the feeling of intoxication commonly associated with cannabis. In fact, according to a study conducted at Oxford University, published in volume 27 of the Endocrine Review medical journal, all animals are now proven to possess what’s known as the endocannabinoid system. This series of neuroreceptors within our bodies helps regulate pain modulation, appetite, digestion, immune system functionality, tumor surveillance, and fertility—among others. So, when we ingest CBD, it fires up a series of receptors in our bodies and strengthens crucial functions, providing support for essential systems and promoting a renewed sense of wellbeing.
Common uses of CBD oils, gummies, balms, lotions, and other means of consumption include pain relief, reduced inflammation, sleep disorders, mood regulation, and appetite assistance. In heavier cases, clinical studies show positive results with the implementation of CBD to reduce frequency of seizures in patients with epilepsy. Current research also shows that it helps to mitigate turbulent fluctuations in patients with mood disorders like PTSD and depression, as well as combating the grueling side effects of chemotherapy in cancer patients.
Simply put: cannabidiol is an entirely natural remedy that works through a genetically ingrained system within all humans and animals to promote a sense of contentment and wellbeing. It is a non-psychoactive, plant-based extract; and—most importantly—there are NO major side effects associated with use of CBD!
We at Just Breathe CBD hope this helps to bring some focus to those who might consider implementing this miracle plant into their daily diet or vitamin regiment. But, as always, please feel free to reach out to us with any specific questions.
