Cbd ( cannabidiol ) is a compound found in abundance in the Hemp plant. It acts in molecular cell signalling pathways in what is known as the body's endocannabinoid ( ECS ) system , modulating and regulating numerous physiological processes such as mood , sleep , pain , appetite , hormonal balance & interacting with CB1 & CB2 receptors found in the body's nervous system and in organs and tissues in the immune system.
Cbd supplements the body's own endocannabinoids , which may be depleted through poor diet , injury , illness , and other forms of oxidative stress and inflammation. Many illnesses arise from inflammation ( eg.diabetes ) and an out of balance immune system. Cbd acts to stabilise and create balance ( homeostasis ) in your immune system.
PROPERTIES OF CBD :
As research continues , no doubt more benefits will come to light. Although there is currently a lack of clinical trials , there is a growing body of testimonials and research highlighting the healing properties of CBD.
There are no serious side effects from consuming CBD. You cannot get intoxicated ( high ) from using it. Neither can you overdose from it.
If currently on medication , it is suggested that you consult with your doctor prior to taking CBD. Some people currently on sleep medication , anti-psychotic medication or anti-depressants may experience unpleasant side effects. In this case cbd can be introduced slowly , whilst weaning off those medications. However , follow your doctors advice.
