Cannabidiol Education Guide
- CBD (Cannabidiol) is one of a group of unique chemical compounds that are found only in the cannabis or hemp (cannabis sativa) plant. CBD does not get you high. In fact, when taken with THC, CBD can actually reduce how high you can get.
- When CBD is activated (smoked, vaped, or ingested), it turns on specific receptors that influence body functions such as appetite, pain sensation, mood, memory, and anxiety.
Some of the cannabidiol’s effects include
- Antiemetic (reduces nausea and vomiting)
- Anticonvulsant (suppresses seizures)
- Anti-inflammatory (mitigates inflammatory disorders)
- Antitumoral (fights tumor and cancer cells)
- Anxiolytic (Combats anxiety and depression)
- Antioxidant (tempers neurodegenerative disorders)
- Antipsychotic (mediates psychotic disorders)
Like many things, effects vary depending on the person. Because of different factors like age, weight, metabolism, and tolerance. Another thing to remember is you can also experience side effects. Although it has so many great benefits, it is also not for everyone. Make sure to contact your doctor before seeing if CBD is right for you. Start with a small amount, and work your way up to an amount that works for you.

Types of CBD
Because CBD extract by itself is a crystal that’s not fit for human consumption, the various types of CBD products all provide different mediums for getting it into your body. However, the way you use CBD has an impact on the strength and effects, but other factors like convenience and personal choice are also vital. CBD comes in many forms and variations. Because of this, it makes for many versatile options for you to choose from. Furthermore, it can be ingested, applied topically, and smoked/vaped. Because of this, it also gives CBD a wide range and full control of your desired effects.
