CBD oil is one of many cannabinoids found in cannabis. Also known as cannabidiol, CBD oil is widely recognized for its possible benefits to the health of both humans and animals.
Cannabis is the genus name for both marijuana and hemp, and the term itself is not necessarily interchangeable with marijuana. In fact, almost all CBD oil today comes from industrial hemp, which contains negligible amounts of THC, which is the cannabinoid responsible for causing a high. Most strains of agricultural hemp are rich in CBD while only having less than 0.03 percent THC, making them perfect for extracting CBD oil.
CBD oil works in conjunction with the endocannabinoid system. Because CBD is a cannabinoid, it helps to supplement the body’s natural cannabinoids, in turn strengthening the endocannabinoid system.
In other words, the endocannabinoid system is a vast system of cannabinoid receptors. Furthermore, the body itself produces its own natural cannabinoids. CBD oil or cannabidiol, in general, is known as a phytocannabinoid (plant-based cannabinoid) which can help to supplement the endocannabinoid system (ECS).
People consume CBD oil for a variety of reasons ranging from stress relief to sleep regulation to inflammation to more. The endocannabinoid system has been found to control a whole host of functions on the human body (and pet’s too!) Many scientific studies have shown the beneficial effects of CBD oil.
CBD oil may work as an anti-inflammatory agent. Inflammation is the primary cause of pain, including in such conditions as arthritis and circulatory-related ailments. Some research has even shown CBD oil to be promising when it comes to sleep disorders, anxiety, depression, stress relief, and more.
