CBD oil is an oil extracted from industrial hemp. A plant grown mainly in the United States. Unlike cannabis oil, CBD oil contains no THC (or very little, less than 0.2%). It is THC that gives psychoactive effects and is the reason why you become “high” when smoking cannabis. Cannabidiol (CBD) has no psychoactive effect as THC has.
HOW DOES CBD OIL WORK?
There is a lot of research conducted on cannabidiol (CBD) and how it affects the human system, so we will only keep on a simpler and more clear level here on the website. We still find research about it every day and what we have learned so far is already overwhelming.
However, since it is not classified as a drug, we can or can not say that it has any healing effects. What we can do here, however, is to refer to the research that exists around the world as well as conveys what experiences others have felt of supplying CBD to their bodies.
First of all, it is important to know that we all have what is called the endocannabinoid system. We naturally produce different endocannabinoids in our bodies, which are completely consumed without the use of cannabis and hemp products. This internal “cannabis system” is completely natural in all humans and all other mammals.
THE ENDOCANNABINOID SYSTEM
Endocannabinoids are naturally occurring compounds found in the human body. They have been there for 600,000 years or more but we have never noticed it before! One of the strange things of endocannabinoids is their striking resemblance to the active ingredients in hemp known as phytocannabinoids. It was the researchers’ curiosity to understand the exact mechanism through which cannabis acts in the body that led to the discovery of the endocannabinoid system, just over a decade ago.
The science of the endocannabinoid system has developed a lot in recent years. The awareness that the endocannabinoid system is the largest system of signal substances in the human body is great. It regulates relaxation, appetite, sleep, memory, and noted by the Italian scientist Vincenzo Di Marzo, also our immune system.
Cannabinoids promote homeostasis, ie the maintenance of a stable internal environment, at every level of biological life – from subcellular levels to the entire organism. The endocannabinoids found naturally in breast milk are crucial for proper human development and have almost identical effects like cannabinoids found in hemp.
IS IT TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE?
If only 10% of what scientists say about CBD oil is true, it’s a discovery that is similar to the discovery of antibiotics. Many serious scientific studies in Europe and around the world have pointed out that CBD oil has an almost unprecedented healing impact on a variety of symptoms. In Sweden, there are only a few prescription drugs that contain CBD and THC (the two most studied subjects in Hampa). By contrast, products with CBD (not THC) can be purchased as “health food” without a prescription. These preparations are not tested as medicines and we must not say that they have healing or soothing effects. On the other hand, thousands of people in Sweden and many, with a wide variety of diseases and symptoms, an experience that they are significantly better.Many even experience such a strong effect that they say they were able to pull down or completely phased out prescription drugs. But, as we said, experiences we have learned and we can not claim that it is scientifically pledged as the studies are not conducted according to the guidelines available to be classified as a drug.
WHAT BENEFITS COME FROM PURE CBD OIL?
If you read articles about the CBD, it appears that it seems to help with a variety of disorders, such as depression, and anxiety, Alzheimer’s, various forms of addiction, chronic pain and other bowel diseases, diabetes, fibromyalgia, mood disorders, multiple sclerosis, osteoporosis, Parkinson’s, PTSD , stress, sleep problems and cancer.
