WHAT IS CBD AND WHAT DOES IT DO?
It is becoming a common thing to find CBD in more and more homes across the U.S. It isn’t weird anymore to hear about it in every day conversation. For some families it’s part of their daily regimen now. CBD, or cannabidiol, is just one of the many therapeutic and medicinal compounds of the cannabis or hemp plant. It’s not like THC at all. It will not get you high and there are no psychoactive effects. It is completely safe and legal.
All vertebrate animals have a network of neurons called the Endocannabinoid System, or ECS. It runs throughout the brain and body and has many CB1 and CB2 receptors. When cannabinoids, or CBD, are consumed it positively effects ALL the major systems of the body. The effects are extremely beneficial in numerous ways. CBD can help calm anxiety, ease depression, relieve pain, decrease inflammation, support neurological issues, and even help fight cancer.
CBD is powerful enough to fight the toughest diseases and gentle enough to promote general wellness as an everyday supplement. It can be used consistently or situationally. The benefits are truly endless. CBD is being added to tinctures or oils, balms, salves, lotions, foods, and drinks. Try them all and see which variety works best for you and your animals.
Some of the best results have been seen in animals with anxiety. It is calming during thunder and lightening storms or for trips in the car. Older pets are reaping the benefits for arthritis and pain relief. Those who suffer from seizure or neurological disorders are using CBD to help relieve symptoms. CBD promotes new cell growth. People consume CBD to help improve well-being and quality of life.
