What CBD Does to your Brain and Body?

 What CBD Does to your Brain and Body?

Cannabidiol is quickly becoming one of the biggest products in the market, with an estimated value of 7.1 billion USD in 2019. Part of its popularity is the variety of available products – from vape juices to flower buds to dog treats. More and more companies are coming up with new products infused with CBD for sale, so why the trend for these novelties?

Derived from the plant, Cannabis Sativa, cannabidiol oil (CBD) has very low levels of THC, the psychoactive component of marijuana, but still containing all the beneficial compounds. So just how beneficial are these compounds without an individual getting high?

Researchers have discovered that the human body produces natural endocannabinoids – the endogenous cannabinoid system. Some say that is the “bridge between body and mind,” because of the complex and intricate function of the entire system on both the brain and the body. These endocannabinoids can be found all over the human body – in the brain, organs, in the blood, nerves, muscles, glands, and the immune system. These endocannabinoids bind to other receptors to help keep bodily functions working smoothly and maintaining equilibrium – regulating body temperature during a fever, or helping the brain produce more serotonin in case a bad mood strikes, or simply helping keep the entire body and brain healthy.

CBD oil boosts the function of endocannabinoids in the body when the equilibrium is upset and the body cannot produce enough of them. The cannabinoids in the CBD quickly stimulate the endocannabinoids into attaching themselves to various receptors to respond to the body’s needs and sending out an army of healing agents to work on restoring equilibrium to the body – reducing inflammation on the muscles during an arthritic attack, or alleviating the symptoms of anxiety, or helping the body relax so it combats insomnia. For some, using CBD oil helps them maintain focus and concentration as they study for an exam. For others, CBD is also a huge boost in their digestive system when it stimulates bowel movement. These health benefits, with the absence of the mind-altering effects of THC, are what makes users big fans of CBD oil. Because it is also organic, researchers find that there is no danger of overdosing on CBD oil, mainly due to the small dosages in the products. While further research is needed, initial reports say that CBD oil does not produce addiction or dependency and is often used as an aid in reducing substance addiction – whether opioid, cocaine, tobacco, or even alcohol.

Since CBD oil is now available in many forms and not just as a flower bud or a spray, the effects are not just internal, but also external, with muscle rubs or salves. If one is not a fan of tasting CBD oil in candy form or liquid under the tongue but still want the healing that comes with it, they can simply use the muscle rub directly on painful areas and massage away the ache.

While the debate is still ongoing regarding the legalities, more and more people find the health boost that comes from CBD oil, and most products on the market contain very low doses, making it safe for consumption, whether it is for therapeutic purposes, for recreation, or simply as a supplement.

Alpine Hemp has CBD for sale in different forms – gummies, capsules, tinctures, topicals, or vape juices – that will help boost the endogenous cannabinoid system of your body that works hard to keep you healthy. We all know that health is wealth, and taking care of your body will ensure that your body takes care of you.
