The Buzz Around CBD- What’s Happening?

If you're reading this, you're probably already aware that cannabidiol (CBD) is the most popular cannabis medicine. CBD is being added to everything from sparkling water to deodorant, and consumer interest in CBD-infused products is at an all-time high, resulting in the recent buzz around CBD.

So, what's the big deal? CBD, unlike its cannabinoid cousin tetrahydrocannabinol, does not produce a buzz (THC). However, the contemporary trend of putting CBD in everything stems from the fact that CBD has shown promise in treating a laundry list of ailments longer than your arm—and any psoriasis that may be present on that arm, as well.

People are frequently astounded by cannabis' alleged ability to treat a wide range of seemingly unrelated ailments. However, we now know that the endogenous cannabinoid system regulates all of these circumstances, at least in part (endocannabinoid system, or ECS). Cannabidiol, like all the other therapeutic components in cannabis and hemp, interacts with your body through the endocannabinoid system. It's an intrinsic biological system found in all mammals and other living beings that connects numerous physiological areas and other body systems, affecting basic physical activities including feeding, sleeping, relaxing, immunity, and memory formation.

CBD and other cannabinoids activate cell receptors all across the body, from the deepest primal areas of the brain to the dark recesses of the gut to the skin's surface. This means that CBD can be eaten in a variety of ways and via a range of delivery mechanisms, which has driven the rise of CBD-infused products.

CBD has the potential to help with a variety of conditions that have a significant impact on the quality of life of millions of people living with conditions such as Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis (MS), fibromyalgia, and epilepsy because of its effects on our most basic bodily functions while working all over the body at the cellular level.

Why is the word "potential" deliberately used? Because the research behind CBD's therapeutic uses is still in its infancy, and CBD's popularity is only a decade old, the science supporting CBD's therapeutic benefits is still in its infancy.

In fact, the entire endocannabinoid system was just discovered recently. The ECS has only been discovered in the last 25 years. The ECS was discovered in the early 1990s by Dr. Raphael Mechoulam, widely recognized as the grandfather of cannabis science.

While it may appear that we have a good understanding of cannabinoids, the estimated 20,000 research articles on the subject have only scratched the surface. The complexity of interactions that occur in the ECS between various cannabinoids, cell types, and other body systems still has large gaps in our present knowledge.

While preclinical trials of CBD-based medicines are showing promise in a wide range of therapeutic applications, we are still a long way from fully knowing how CBD works in our bodies and how to best use CBD as a medicine.

Another difficult problem in cannabis science is that research has been severely hampered in the United States since cannabis is classified as a Schedule I drug, meaning it has the highest potential for abuse and no recognized medical value.

This means that legal cannabis research has been extremely limited, with the goal of establishing that cannabis is harmful to human health rather than beneficial. The backstory to this dates back over a century, and it's riddled with political misinformation and corporate interests triumphing over human concerns. However, the social tides are shifting, and one need only watch any of the television commercials for FDA-approved pharmaceuticals to see that the risks of pharmaceutical drugs pale in comparison to the risks of cannabis.

Understanding The Happenings Around CBD

To begin, users must have a basic understanding of what CBD is and how to utilize it in order to choose the products that would best suit their needs. CBD products aren't all made equal! This book will help you understand what questions you should ask yourself, bud tenders, growers, producers, and even your doctor as you begin your CBD journey. It will teach you how CBD is extracted, concentrated, and used in the seemingly limitless number of products on the market today. It will also teach you how to read product labels, ingredient lists, and laboratory test results.

While the scientific evidence supporting CBD is currently limited, the amount of firsthand experiences from people who have been benefited by cannabis' therapeutic benefits is not. Science is being pushed to catch up in part because of all the anecdotal evidence and public enthusiasm for CBD. Throughout this book, you'll read experiences from patients, practitioners, and producers; anecdotes from actual people who have been helped or who have helped others with the all-natural, nontoxic, therapeutic benefits of a plant that is quite amazing but frequently misunderstood. Many people could benefit from a natural and nontoxic kind of treatment in this day of an American opioid crisis and gobbling pills for every potential disease. So this is crucial right now because CBD and cannabis treatments can help more individuals than ever before.

In Conclusion

CBD is a safe and effective treatment for a range of diseases, including as pain, inflammation, sleeplessness, and anxiety. It's easy to be tricked into buying something that isn't real with so many CBD products on the market. Look for a product with more than just the words "hemp oil" on it. Because not all hemp oil has enough CBD to be useful, it must say specifically that it contains CBD extracted from hemp oil. Additionally, look for CBD that is organic, non-GMO, and free of additives like vegetable glycerin.
