CBD – A True Wonder Supplement?
Are you interested in achieving greater health, vitality, and wellness? Are you someone who looks for safe and natural ways to remedy common conditions and supplement your healthy lifestyle? If so, the chances are good that you may have heard of CBD. CBD, which is becoming increasingly popular nationwide, has often been described as a wonder supplement – and with good reason. While many have heard of CBD, in truth, they are unaware of exactly what CBD is (and what it isn’t), exactly what benefits it offers, and why using it is a wise decision to enhance your overall health and wellness.
As many might know, CBD is a compound derived from the cannabis plant. CBD is short for cannabinoid, and there are two types of cannabinoids that exist. Endocannabinoids are produced naturally within the body, and phytocannabinoids, like CBD, are produced by plants. Both types of cannabinoids interact with the body’s endocannabinoid (ECS) system, which is a system that helps to maintain homeostasis in the body by helping to regulate any number of functions, including metabolism, inflammatory responses, mitochondrial responses, and more. CBD, when taken regularly, acts as a supplement that helps to boost and enhance the good work that the ECS system is already doing. As a result, it is a pure, safe, and beneficial way to increase overall health and wellness without some of the side effects that come from prescription drugs or other supplements that are less pure and natural.
Speaking of side effects, it should be noted that, when many hear that CBD comes from the cannabis plant, they immediately make an association with marijuana. While making this connection is understandable, CBD and marijuana are actually very different from one another. There are actually two types of cannabis plants: the marijuana plant, and the hemp plant. Marijuana plants have much higher levels of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the ingredient that makes users feel “stoned,” and lower amounts of cannabinoids. The opposite is true for hemp, which has more cannabinoids and lower levels of THC. CBD is extracted from the hemp plant and not the marijuana plant. As a result, those who use CBD can benefit from the many health benefits that it offers without the psychoactive side effects they may not desire.
What Benefits Does CBD Offer?
This begs the question: What health benefits does CBD offer? The benefits of taking CBD are many. Even better, new benefits are being discovered constantly. Do you struggle with a mental condition like stress, depression, or anxiety? If so, CBD products have been found to be very effective in calming the mind, boosting low serotonin levels often responsible for depression, and decreasing the side effects of stress and anxiety. Are you suffering with pain from a chronic condition, like lupus, arthritis, or fibromyalgia? Or, perhaps you have more acute pain from a recent injury, and you’re struggling to find a safe way to treat it without using potentially addictive prescription medications? If so, CBD oil is able to help with that, too.
CBD has even been proven to help relieve symptoms of very serious conditions like cancer, insofar as it reduces the effects of chronic and severe pain, nausea, anxiety, and other commonly experienced side effects. Some studies have also indicated that CBD can even be helpful for those who are struggling with addictions because of the way it interacts with the receptors in the brain that control addictive behaviors. CBD has been shown in a number of studies to be very positive in reducing the side effects of epilepsy as well. This is not to mention help with common conditions like insomnia, acne, and general feelings of tiredness. The beneficial uses of CBD, in fact, seem almost endless.
In addition to being very helpful in a number of ways to people, many have also successfully used CBD to increase the health and wellness of their pets. Cats, dogs, and other mammals have an ECS system just as people do, and CBD has been proven to have many health benefits for our animal companions. In pets, CBD has been proven to reduce symptoms of inflammation, nausea, and chronic pain as well as to reduce anxiety and increase overall feelings of wellness. These are only a few of the many potential benefits, and as is the case with people, new benefits are being discovered all the time.
Are There Any Drawbacks to Using CBD?
For a supplement that offers so many benefits, it is entirely understandable to wonder if its use also carries some risk or unhelpful side effects. Fortunately, there have been many small-scale studies that have looked into the effects of CBD. The good news is that, consistently, researchers have found no significant side effects on the central nervous systems or vital signs, even in those individuals who regularly used fairly high doses. No significant negative side effects have been found in heart rate, blood pressure, body temperature, or psychological and psychomotor functions either.
Some smaller-scale effects were noted in a small number of individuals. Those side effects include tiredness, occasional nausea or diarrhea, and changes in appetite or weight. Even these side effects, however, can generally be eliminated by adjusting your dosage of CBD – as finding the right dosage is, of course, trial and error in the beginning.
Ultimately, CBD is regarded as a very safe, effective supplement that exerts far more positive influence on the body than negative. It is clear that CBD has many benefits and remarkably few side effects. It has rightfully been described as a wonder supplement, and many who take it on a regular basis can attest to its positive impact on overall health and wellness. As with any product, the benefits of CBD are, in truth, only as good as the plants it is sourced from and the methods that are used to extract and manufacture it. It’s a simple truth that the safest, purest, most beneficial products must be produced with the highest quality standards. The Hemp Doctor is a company that prides itself on doing exactly that.
