You've heard about it everywhere and now We offer a few CBD infused products right here at Posh, so lets see why CBD will change your life!
Cannabis is a plant that makes a thick substance full of compounds called cannabinoids. There are more than 100 of these chemicals in cannabis. They cause drug-like reactions in your body. CBD (cannabidiol) and THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) are the most common cannabinoids found in cannabis products, but they are VASTLY different!
THC and CBD are in both marijuana and hemp. Marijuana contains much more THC than hemp (we're talking 1000x times more), while hemp is CBD.
How CBD and THC Affect the Body
THC is the main psychoactive compound in marijuana. It's what makes people feel "high."
We have TWO types of cannabinoid receptors in our bodies! How cool is that?! THC binds with receptors -- mostly in the brain -- that control pain, mood, and other feelings. That's why THC can make you feel euphoric and give you that so-called high.
CBD doesn't cause that high. Instead, it's thought to work with other elements in the body linked to feelings of well-being.
People take CBD products to help with everything from arthritis and Crohn's disease to diabetes and multiple sclerosis. Some say it helps with anxiety, insomnia, and chronic pain.
According to CBD.org; CBD is a "naturally occurring compound found in the resinous flower of cannabis, a plant with a rich history as a medicine going back thousands of years. Today the therapeutic properties of CBD are being tested and confirmed by scientists and doctors around the world.
CBD is a safe, non-addictive substance, and is one of more than a hundred “phytocannabinoids,” which are unique to cannabis and endow the plant with its robust therapeutic profile."
Basically what we're saying is CBD is safe to use and you will not get "High" from using it or become addicted to it!
CBD can help provide relief to many ailments such as
-Relieves Chronic pain
-Anxiety & Depression
-Many benefits to those that suffer from autoimmune disorders
There are also many studies being done as to the effects of CBD on cancer and that when used with another cannabinoid THC that it may possibly stop the spread of cancer, only the studies will tell what the future holds for CBD.
