According to one study posted to Neurotherapeutics, this is because CBD itself does very little to the ECS. Instead, it activates or inhibits other compounds in the endocannabinoid system.
For instance, CBD stops the body from the degradation of anandamide, one compound associated with regulating pain. Increased levels of anandamide in the bloodstream may reduce the amount of pain a person feels.
Various levels and combinations of cannabinoids, terpenoids and flavonoids provide many benefits to the human body, dilating blood vessels, stimulating bone growth, protecting damaged brain cells, killing certain kinds of cancer cells, preventing seizure, controlling muscle spasticity, killing viruses and bacteria to name a few. It is the combination of varying levels of cannabinoids, terpenoids and flavonoids that seem to make the most effective medicine for specific symptoms and dis-eases – the isolated components appear to be less effective but nonetheless still therapeutic.
Cannabis has been found to ease general pain, chemo induced neuropathy, and nausea, as well as increase appetite and reverse wasting. It is also effective in controlling muscles spasms and seizures, healing damaged brain cells, protecting against the ravages of Alzheimer’s, and is an effective antioxidant.
Cannabidiol (CBD) is Not Psychoactive
One of the most crucially important qualities of CBD is its lack of psycho-activity. In layperson’s terms, this means that cannabidiol won’t get you high. Unlike THC, the cannabinoid with the legendary power of producing euphoric sensations, Cannabidiol “CBD” is inert.
CBD derived from the HEMP plant (the male Cannabis plant) is completely LEGAL, where CBD derived from the Cannabis plant (the female/ bud producing plant) is currently still illegal in Canada. Technically speaking, its THC—the cannabinoid that gets you high—which is illicit. The rules governing hemp are quite different from the restrictions placed on cannabis. Organa possesses an active business license because all of our products contain the legal limit of THC .3% or less per bottle/ package.
