What is CBD?
CBD (Cannabidiol) is one of at least 113 active cannabinoids identified in cannabis. It is a major phytocannabinoid, accounting for up to 40% of the plant’s extract. CBD is considered to have a wide scope of potential medical applications – due to clinical reports showing the lack of side effects, particularly a lack of psychoactivity (as is typically associated with THC). Moreover, studies have shown CBD to be an effective treatment for a plethora of ailments and conditions, such as: anxiety, depression, diabetes, epilepsy, MS, cancer, chronic acne, fibromyalgia, PTSD, Parkinson’s, Crohn’s disease, chronic pain, alcoholism, smoking addiction and more.
CBD for consumption comes in various forms, including CBD vape oil, CBD capsules, sprays, tinctures, topical creams, and edibles.
Each form has its advantages depending on one’s condition and tolerance levels. CBD vape oil in particular has produced rising interest among those seeking momentary relief from stress, anxiety and those looking to quit smoking. Vaping is recognized at being 29% more effective than other methods for quitting smoking as well as 95% less harmful than smoking.
For more serious inflammatory, chronic and autoimmune conditions, CBD capsules have been working wonders. Due to their direct absorption into the bloodstream from the gut, one is able to benefit from the full spectrum effect of CBD oil, with phytocannabinoids interacting with a person’s endocannabinoid system in their fullest capacity.
