What is all the confusion about Cannabis Medicine?
Hemp and Marijuana are two separate species of the cannabis plant. This leads to much confusion about Hemp products because many people use the term cannabis interchangeably with Marijuana. Cannabis contains at least 85 known cannabinoids, which are being harnessed in various ways for their health benefits. Hemp plants contain less than 0.03% THC and will not give a user a “high” feeling. The Hemp plant still contains many cannabinoids, the non- psychoactive parts of the plant that are proving to help the endocannabinoid system function more efficiently and promote overall wellness.
How do cannabinoids work?
Cannabinoids work by interacting with your body’s endocannabinoid (EC) system, a core part of health in every human, as well as our animal friends. Endocannabinoid receptors are found in the brain, organs, connective tissues, glands, and immune cells. CBD affects multiple sets of receptors all throughout the body. Introducing phytocannabinoids, like CBD, to your body boosts your EC systems natural production of endocannabinoids. These naturally produced endocannabinoids help to alleviate pain, reduce stress, promote healthy sleep cycles and eating habits, combat addiction, and increase focus and overall well being. The EC system is so efficient at working in tandem with other systems of the body that CBD has begun to be branded as a miracle drug. CBD and the other cannabinoids can be considered nature’s supplement for your EC system, and efficient function of this system will promote a happy and healthy lifestyle.
What is CBD?
CBD stands for Cannabidiol, a cannabinoid that is found in Cannabis plants. What a tongue twister! It is a non psychoactive compound that looks very similar to chemicals that are found naturally in our own bodies.
Is it Legal?
CBD has been federally legalized in America thanks to the signing of the 2018 farm bill.
How much should I take?
Your endocannabinoid (EC) system should go through an awakening period. At first, we recommend new users start with a dosage of 10mg once or twice a day for 10 days. As your EC system begins to adjust to the levels of CBD, slowly increase this dosage to find a comfortable spot for the condition you are trying to treat. As a general guideline, ingesting 1-6mg of CBD for every ten pounds of body weight, is a good dosage for regulating mild conditions. For example, 20mg-33mg would be a great initial dosing point for a 200lb. consumer, while 15mg-25mg would work for someone who weighs 150lb. With repetitive use, you can actually increase your number of cannabinoid receptors, allowing your EC system to run more efficiently over time. This is why its important to keep regimented.
Will it show up on a drug test?
Drug tests test for THC, the psychoactive ingredient in marijuana. CBD that is full spectrum may contain trace, but negligible amounts of up to 0.03% THC. This is not enough to show up on a drug test. CBD isolate, which is what we use in our recipes, is completely THC free.
