About Cannabidiol (CBD)


Cannabidiol (CBD) is a naturally occurring cannabinoid constituent of cannabis. It was discovered in 1940 and initially thought not to be pharmaceutically active. It is one of at least 113 cannabinoids identified in hemp plants, accounting for up to 40% of the plant's extract. As of 2018 in the United States, Food and Drug Administration approval of cannabidiol as a prescription drug called Epidiolex for medical uses has been limited to two rare forms of childhood epilepsy.

CBD Oil is extracted from the cannabis plant and contains chemicals know as cannabinoids. These may bind to receptors in the brain to help relieve symptoms of pain. CBD Oil does not produce a euphoric high or psychoactive effect. This is because CBD does not affect the same receptors as THC. The human body has an endocannabinoid system (ECS) that receives and translates signals from cannabinoids.

CBD Oils contain naturally occurring cannabidiol (CBD), which is the main therapeutic cannabinoid found in hemp. CBD along with other specific cannabinoids binds to the cannabinoid receptor sites found in the human body that make up the endocannabinoid (EC) system. The EC system is an integral part of natural human physiology and is responsible for multiple physiological and mental processes. Unlike synthetic pharmaceutical drugs, cannabis oil and related cannabinoids have no known toxicity level, and their health benefits come without negative side effects.

Many users choose cannabis to manage their long-term health or pain issues, while others supplement daily with healthy CBD to maintain and promote their general well-being, mood and stress levels. It is non habit-forming, and can be taken daily. It has no psychoactive properties and will not impair users in any way. Further for users that have different needs, CBD is processed into three basic categories, Full Spectrum, Broad Spectrum, and Isolate.

Although studies suggest that Full Spectrum CBD is superior to CBD isolate the overall effects of CBD continue to be studied by scientists.  They have already discovered the connection of CBD boosting the function of the cannabinoid receptors to produce soothing, relaxing effects without producing a high.

CBD products (both Full Spectrum and Isolate) is currently available in the United States without a prescription through the companies promoted on this website.
