What is CBD?
CBD stands short for cannabidiol. It is one among more than 100 compounds found inside cannabis plants. These compounds are called Cannabinoids. CBD oil has high levels of CBD. It can also be extracted from hemp, which contains small amounts of the compound.
THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) is another cannabinoid that is found in cannabis plants. THC, which is not CBD, has psychoactive properties and can cause the "high", often associated with marijuana usage.
How does it work?
The human body has an endocannabinoid, or (ECS), system. This system regulates various body functions, including mood, pain and appetite. Cannabinoids (chemical compounds found in cannabis) activate the ECS. CBD and THC interact in different ways with the ECS.
CBD doesn't attach to THC receptors like THC. It interacts instead with other receptors in your body that help regulate inflammation, pain, and stress. CBD has been shown effective in treating chronic pain, anxiety, epilepsy, and other conditions.
THC, which binds to brain cannabinoid-receptors, causes the high associated with marijuana use. THC can also reduce nausea and vomiting, which is a therapeutic effect. However, side effects can include anxiety and paranoia.
Is It Safe to Use?
CBD is generally safe and well tolerated by humans. Some people may experience mild side effect, such as dryness of the mouth, diarrhea, and reduced appetite. You should consult your doctor before taking CBD.
CBD is available as an oil, tincture, capsule, edible, topical, or liquid form. CBD products are also available to pets.
What are the Benefits Of CBD Oil?
The effectiveness of CBD in treating anxiety, chronic pains, epilepsy, addiction and other conditions has been demonstrated. It can also improve sleep quality as well as reduce inflammation. CBD may even be neuroprotective, according to some research.

How much CBD should you take?
The treatment and individual's condition will dictate the CBD dosage. It is best to start with a low amount and then increase it as needed.
Are there any side effects from CBD?
CBD can sometimes cause side effects such as dryness of the mouth, dizziness, or drowsiness. These side effects generally disappear after a few weeks. Side effects that are more severe than these are rare include seizures, anxiety, heart rate changes and changes in heart rhythm. CBD should not be used if you have these symptoms.
We'd like to conclude that CBD is an effective and safe treatment for a range of conditions. It is very well tolerated and has very few side effect. You should consult your doctor before considering CBD.
