10 things you may not know about CBD

  1. Cannabidiol, better known as CBD, is a compound found in the cannabis plant. Unlike tetrahydrocannabinol or THC, CBD does not get you high.
  2. CBD oil is made by extracting CBD from the cannabis plant. CO2 extraction removes the THC, leaving behind CBD.
  3. Getting your CBD from a trusted source with high quality control and testing is important to ensure purity and potency.
  4. CBD interacts with the body’s endocannabinoid system. A healthy, fully functioning ECS is essential in maintaining both physical and mental health.
  5. The ECS is made up of messengers also known as cannabinoids and two types of cannabinoid receptors, CB1 and CB2.
  6. CB1 receptors are located in the brain, connective tissue, gonads, glands, and organs. CB2 receptors are found in the digestive and immune system.
  7. Many people do not naturally produce enough endocannabinoids. This may be due to stress, diet, toxins, or a combination of these elements.
  8. What this means is CBD may have a supportive effect on the overall health of your body and brain.
  9. CBD is available in several different forms and can be used topically and orally. The best studied methods are oral and sublingual.
  10. In addition to CBD, you can support your ECS by supplementing with fish oil and probiotics, avoiding ECS disruptors like pesticides and phthalates, managing stress, maintaining a healthy weight, and exercising.
