All About CBD


What is CBD and How Does it Work?

CBD (Cannabidiol) is a compound found in the Cannabis plant. It can be used in several different ways including vaping, tinctures, capsules, and edibles. Unlike its close relative, THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol), CBD is completely non-psychoactive. This allows us to benefit from the many health properties of the Cannabis plant without the negative side effects of “getting high.” Because of this, CBD became a very popular option for those seeking a natural alternative to treat conditions such as chronic pain, multiple sclerosis, PTSD, epilepsy and other mental disorders. At first, many were skeptical, thinking that a natural compound, let alone a Cannabis-compound, could effectively treat such a wide range of conditions. But as medical researchers learned more, and the stories from tens of thousands of people began to stack up, the truth was undeniable. CBD works.

But how exactly does it work?

For starters, CBD inherits many of the medicinal properties of Cannabis such as being anti-inflammatory and anti-anxiolytic. This allows it to provide natural stress, anxiety and pain relief. But this alone isn’t what allows CBD to benefit so many conditions. What allows it to effectively treat so many conditions, and maintain health and wellness in the body, is how the cannabinoids found in CBD interact with receptors throughout our body.

Let’s talk about the Endocannabinoid System.

The Endocannabinoid System

In 1988, the first cannabinoid receptor was discovered in the brain of a rat. Researchers found that these receptors reacted specifically to THC and were found primarily found in regions of the brain responsible for mental and physiological processes such as memory, high cognition, emotion, and motor coordination.

Two years later, in 1993, the second cannabinoid receptor was found as part of the immune and central nervous systems. It was then that researchers started to realize that they may have been onto something, but these receptors were only found in rodents, so what’s the big deal, right?

Fast forward to 1995, researchers discovered that these receptors, now officially referred to as the CB1 receptor and CB2 receptor, were found not only in rats, but within thousands of other species, including humans. 

Thanks to advancements in technology and knowledge and tons of clinical trials, researchers were able to reverse engineer what they’d discovered, trace back through the metabolic pathways of various cannabinoids, and uncover an entirely unknown signaling system between the CB1 and CB2 receptors in our bodies and receptors found in Cannabis compounds, which they called “endocannabinoids.” Due to the role of endocannabinoids in this system, the system was officially named the Endocannabinoid System (ECS).

As researchers learned more about the ECS, they discovered that it was a vital component in maintaining the body’s homeostasis, which is the ideal balance between interdependent elements in the body. To give you an idea on how the ECS helps maintain homeostasis, let me give you an example. When we become stressed, our mind releases cortisol, which is the compound responsible for how we feel when we are stressed. Cortisol can be helpful when we need to react quickly to a dangerous situation; however too much disrupts the natural balance of our body and mind can result in serious health problems.

When certain endocannabinoids are introduced into the body, it not only helps provide stress relief, it helps manage our perception of stress so that we can look at the situation with a clear mind and make the best decision. With all the scientific jargon, this last section may have been a little confusing. So just to clarify… Scientists discovered that there are systems in our bodies that are solely dependent on their interaction with cannabinoids, and these systems are part of vital functions in our bodies.

Basically, our bodies were designed to work with cannabinoids, and they can even be considered as essential to our overall health and wellness. 


Hemp Oil versus cbd oil


Hemp oil and CBD oil differ in what part of the plant they come from and how they are used. Hemp oil is from seeds and is used as a protein supplement and in lotions and soap. CBD oil is from plant flowers and leaves. It is used primarily for medicinal purposes, such as treating inflammation.

It’s easy to get confused because of the many varieties of products available, including oils, lotions and tinctures. Here’s a closer look at hemp oil and CBD oil, including where they come from and how they are most often put to use.


Hemp oil

Hemp oil is extracted from hemp seeds. Typically, it is taken from industrial hemp plants and contains no THC, the chemical in the marijuana plant that causes the high feeling. In other words, it’s non-psychoactive.

Hemp oil gets used in diverse ways, perhaps the best known of which is in cooking as a replacement for olive oil. Hemp oil has a nutty flavor and is a source of protein.

Hemp oil also is used in lotions, as it is known to help hydrate the skin. Because it is a natural moisturizer, it also is used in the making of some types of soap. Some also believe it can treat atopic dermatitis and has anti-aging properties for the skin.



CBD (short for cannabidiol) oil is extracted from the flower and leaves of the hemp plant. It is a naturally occurring chemical in marijuana that is non-psychoactive.  The uses of CBD usually revolve around medical applications. Athletes often use CBD products for pain management and to lessen inflammation. A CBD-based medicine also has been approved by the federal Food and Drug Administration for treatment of certain types of epilepsy.

The uses of CBD are expanding as new discoveries are made. For example, CBD oils have been used by some to treat depression and ease stress. Still others have used CBD products on their pets, also to lower stress. Cancer patients also have used marijuana and CBD to lessen nausea and increase appetite when undergoing chemotherapy.

Both hemp oil and CBD oil have important uses, but they different greatly in both where they come from and how they are used. Take the time to learn about both before making your purchase decision.

Why do people take CBD?

Top 10 Uses for CBD Oil


CBD oil is the hot new hemp trend hitting the market that people of all ages are using for its restorative properties. CBD  comes from a hemp plant. 

CBD is showing that it may have a subtle way of treating all sorts of physical and mental conditions in grown adults, young children, and even to benefit animals!   If you thought it was only an oil to vape with or that your favorite CBD candy was just a tasty gummy, think again.

Here are ten of the top medically-related issues that people are using CBD oil for.*

(*The FDA will not allow us to report that CBD “can” or “does” help with any of these conditions; we can only report that they “may” help.

1. Pain Relief

CBD may help greatly with treating pain relief. If you deal with arthritis in any of your bones or muscle spasms of some sort, consider trying CBD to better soothe your pain. The level of relief you feel will depend on many things including how much CBD you consume and the level of pain you experience in the first place. For example, it’s much different to treat a minor injury or a random headache than it is to treat a chronic pain. Keep this in mind as you’re shopping for CBD and trying to find the best overall pain relief.

2. Anxiety Medication

Pain doesn’t always have to be physical. Sometimes, it’s mental, and it’s just as exhausting. Anyone who lives with anxiety can relate to this statement. Anxiety comes in many forms. It might pop up during social situations, when you’re under a lot of stress, or if you’re worried about the future. It could be the result of a traumatic event or something you’ve had for a long time.

Either way, CBD may help you out. Use it when you know you’re about to go into a situation that may trigger your anxiety or gently throughout the day if you live with constant anxiety.

3. Insomnia Treatment

What if your anxiety comes at night and it keeps you from sleeping or you have trouble staying asleep? If so, you probably have insomnia, for which CBD is also being used. Find a nice, gentle CBD oil to help put your mind at ease and relax your body with when you’re getting ready for bed. Experiment with vaping it versus ingesting it, too. Some people notice better results with one or the other, and when it comes to sleeping, the better quality of rest you get, the better.

4. Mental Clarity

Maybe you know exactly what’s keeping you up at night or causing you stress, but you just don’t how to deal with it because of how serious your situation is. This is the case for many people living with depression or PTSD, as well as Schizophrenia. Such mental conditions can be quite daunting and challenging to deal with, to say the least. You’ve probably tried a few different things to help you cope, but see what CBD does for you. There’s a chance it might be just what you’ve been needing.

5. Better Focus

Sometimes the issue isn’t that you need some sort of mental relief, just more mental focus. Maybe you have trouble staying alert in seminars or getting through your workday. Maybe it’s hard to get out of bed in the mornings, no matter how much you try. These are also reasons to explore the world of CBD. A little bit of CBD oil may have profound effects for these sorts of situations.

6. Muscle Recovery

Here’s a little-known use of CBD for pain: CBD for muscle recovery. Think of the last time you worked out and how sore you were the days afterward. This might be a common thing for you if you’re a regular gym-goer, or the reason you stopped going to the gym altogether.

7. Skin Clarification

While it’s nice to find some relief for things going on inside the body, CBD may help with external things, too. Do you have bad acne on your face or a lot bodily acne in a certain area? Take a bit of CBD oil drops or look into topical CBD treatments like lotions that you can put directly onto the affected area. Do this for a week or two to see how much better your skin may look with a bit of CBD in your system.

8. Anti-Inflammatory Effects

Speaking of things in your system, are you having trouble keeping certain foods down or spending more time in the bathroom than normal? You may have a digestive issue or some internal inflammation going on, which CBD might help with.


9. Addiction Recovery

This is a CBD use to proceed carefully with. Many addiction recovery programs tell addicts not to use any sort of substance to stay clean. Alcoholics, for example, shouldn’t just turn to smoking to deal with their problems and those addicted to cocaine or heroin shouldn’t use alcohol or cigarettes, either. But, if you’ve tried to quit cigarettes over and over or if you’ve been using a drug to numb a physical pain, CBD might be the answer. Consult your doctor or a rehabilitation specialist before trying it out, though.

10. To Ease Cancer Treatment

Cancer treatment and CBD is another thing to be a bit cautious about. It’s important to note that CBD use is not a guaranteed cancer prevention method or a cancer healer. However, if you’re going through chemotherapy, it might help with the side effects of the treatments. There’s a lot of pain associated with chemo, both mental and physical. Whether you’re in the weeds or you’ve recently recovered, CBD could be of use to you. Again, talk to your doctor about this matter before moving forward.
