#1 – What is CBD? What does the acronym mean?

CBD stands for cannabidiol. Cannabidiol is a phytocannabinoid, a chemical compound present in plants such as Cannabis sativa L., these cannabinoids interact with a specific type of receptor in our body (cannabinoid receptors). Science has now identified approximately 120 phytocannabinoids in the cannabis plant.

#2 – Will CBD get me high?

Not even, but possibly!!! The mystery around CBD getting you high is open for debate based on the high you are seeking. Our high-quality hemp plants have different chemical properties than marijuana. Hemp is known to have higher amounts of cannabidiol (CBD), which does not cause the same mind-altering effects caused by tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). At the same time the well balanced body high from CBD can be euphoric as well and equally satisfying to others not seeking to alter their psychotic position.

This difference may be explained because CBD does not activate the cannabinoid receptor type-1 (CB1) such as THC does. This is the most abundant cannabinoid receptor in the central nervous system, through which activation results in the known mind-altering effects after marijuana consumption.

#3 – How does CBD oil work?

Cannabinoids interact with your body’s endocannabinoid system, a system of receptors and endogenous ligands found in all mammals. These receptors are located throughout the body, mainly in the central nervous system (CB1) and immune cells (CB2).

Numerous studies have shown the endocannabinoid system to be directly involved in delivering our well balanced day to day position by managing homeostasis (the body’s natural condition of balance). CBD interacts indirectly with these receptors throughout your body, stimulating your endocannabinoid system.

#4 – How to get CBD oil?

It’s important to know that CBD oil products derived from the hemp plant are federally legal to purchase in the U.S., and available for import in over 40 countries worldwide. Today, you can find a wide variety of marketed hemp oil products that are naturally abundant in CBD. Among them, organic hemp oil concentrates, capsules, tinctures, lotions, salves, shampoos, and conditioners.
