What Is CBD?

CBD Also Known As Cannabidiol

Is a compound that has significant medical benefits but does not get you “high” and can counteract the psycho activity of THC. The fact that CBD deprived from industrial hemp is in fact non-psychoactive makes it an appealing selection for consumers looking for a natural way to counter pain relief and other great health benefits. Cannabidiol is found in the seeds, stalk and flowers of the industrial hemp plant.

What Exactly Is Cannabidiol (CBD) And More Importantly, What Does It Do?

Those questions and more are at the heart of this comprehensive guide to one of the most fascinating and important compounds of the industrial hemp plant. These plants are powerhouses that produce more than 400 different compounds. Of those 400 compounds, more than 60 of them are specific to what scientists call Cannabidiol, or CBD, which holds the key to a wide variety of medicinal and therapeutic effects. 
The more we learn about CBD, the more it seems poised to revolutionize medicine as we know it. Find out why Cannabidiol is so important and why you should care about it, especially if you want to live a healthy lifestyle.

CBD 101: The Fundamentals or Basics of Cannabidiol

Perhaps the only thing more complex than the biochemistry of the industrial hemp plant is its pharmacology. The ways it interacts with the human body are exceedingly intricate. And the truth is we don’t know as much as we should about those interactions—at least not yet.
Nevertheless, we do know some of the basics. So, here’s your fundamental fact sheet about Cannabidiol.

Cannabidiol is NOT Psychoactive

One of the most crucially important qualities of CBD is its lack of psycho-activity. In layperson’s terms, this means that Cannabidiol won’t get you high. Unlike THC, the Cannabinoid with the legendary power of producing euphoric sensations, Cannabidiol is inert.
So, when taken on its own, users experience none of the sensations of being stoned or high and this is the single most important property of the Cannabinoid from the medical—and legal—perspective.

Cannabidiol is Legal Almost Everywhere

Because CBD doesn’t get you high, products that contain only this Cannabinoid can dismiss the legal ban on marijuana.
Technically speaking, its THC—the Cannabinoid that gets you high—which is illicit. When you take a drug test, the aim is to detect THC in your body, not “cannabis.” If you possessed weed without any THC in it, technically you wouldn’t be in violation of the law. Because “weed” without THC has a different name and that is industrial hemp. The rules governing hemp are quite different from the restrictions placed on cannabis.
In fact, every state that has yet to legalize marijuana for medical use has a law allowing people to obtain and use CBD-only products that contain no THC for medical or therapeutic purposes.

What The Experts Say About CBD's Effects And Benefits

 
To shed some light on the subject, we assembled a panel of experts in different areas of the cannabis space to weigh their thoughts on Cannabidiol.

What effects does CBD have on its own?

“Many – anxiolytic, anti-inflammatory, neuroprotective, bone stimulant, anti-spasmodic, and more.”

“Studies have shown CBD to have a positive effect on inflammation, pain, anxiety, psychosis and spasms, but it should be noted that most of these applications are not treated with just CBD alone and in fact do require some level of THC, whose role as a psycho therapeutic compound has already been established. CBD acts on different receptors than THC in the body.”

“Anti-inflammatory, anti-spasmodic, analgesic, anxiolytic (anti-anxiety), neuroprotective, anti-psychotic, anti-emetic (anti-nausea) A potential new research category that I’ve seen evidence of anecdotally are addiction-fighting properties, CBD seems to reroute those neural pathways.”

“It’s been found that CBD alone can cause a feeling of calm, relaxation. CBD’s other medicinal effects stem from separate pathways, such as the Cannabinoid receptor 2 (CB2), mu and delta opioid receptors. Taken on its own, CBD has sedative, antioxidant, anti-anxiety, and antidepressant effects on the brain, but does not create any overtly psychoactive high like THC.
