What is Hemp Derived CBD?
Of all the health benefits of the hemp plant, one property of the plant stands out from the rest. A substance called cannabidiol (CBD) has shown nutritional potential for years, since it’s discovery in Taiwan 10,000 years ago. Over the past 80 years, the taboo around cannabis has kept CBD off the radar. CBD is a prominent naturally occurring cannabinoid compound found in cannabis (both hemp and marijuana) that has significant medical benefits. CBD will not make people feel “stoned”; in fact it can actually counteract the psycho activity of THC. After THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), CBD is by far the most studied natural cannabinoid. According to many researchers, CBD may be the single most important cannabinoid ever discovered. CBD has been proven to help with inflammation, pain, anxiety, psychotic behaviors, seizures and spasms, without any side effects. Scientific and clinical studies highlight CBD as a potential treatment choice for a wide range of conditions, including arthritis, diabetes, alcoholism, MS, chronic pain, schizophrenia, PTSD, antibiotic- resistant infections, epilepsy, and other neurological disorders. CBD has also demonstrated certain neuroprotective and neurogenic effects;
The difference between using hemp (instead of marijuana) for cannabidiol (CBD) is that industrial hemp is naturally high in CBD and naturally low in THC, whereas marijuana is the opposite (high THC, low CBD).
Through a combination of unique cultivation techniques, advanced plant genetics, and cutting-edge growing techniques, an exceptionally high percentage of CBD can be produced naturally and consistently from the hemp plant with only negligible amounts of THC, so it is safe and legal for human consumption. The indication of less than .3 percent of THC was originally a theoretical assumption made to a small group of researchers by the government, who simply followed the Canadian government. No actual studies were ever performed to legitimize this arbitrary number. Or, at least, blame Canadian Scientist Dr. Ernest Small, who is credited with being the originator of the 0.3% figure.
Scientific Studies on CBD
Here’s how CBD works.
According to studies, CBD and other phyto (plant based) cannabinoids influence the brain by interacting with the brain’s very own cannabinoids, called endocannabinoids.
“We have found that, cannabinoids like CBD can help to restore a more balanced homeostasis within the endocannabinoid system,” says Steven
Smith, CEO and Founder of Inspirational Technologies, a Health and Wellness Research Company “As such, CBD may positively, affect various processes that control brain signaling, via neurotransmitter function, ion channel and membrane dynamics, inflammatory responses, and even future possibilities, not yet envisioned.”
The endocannabinoid system has broad influence over areas of the brain involved in sensations such as pain perception, movement, emotion, cognition, and sleep.
This is likely the reason the endocannabinoid system influences the brain’s health conditions. For all of the ways the endocannabinoid system can influence brain health, CBD’s interaction with the endocannabinoid system could translate into some very significant health effects, and previously published studies so far offer positive indications.
