How Does CBD Oil Work?

How CBD works?

CBD is a non-psychoactive compound derived from both the cannabis and hemp plants. CBD interacts with the CB2 receptors, which are largely responsible for the immune system, inflammation, and pain. CBD can be taken in many ways such as being vaped, applied topically, and ingested.

CBD stores are popping up with the frequency of golden arches and green Seattle coffee shops.

What Is CBD?

CBD is a compound derived from both the cannabis and hemp plants. Known as a cannabinoid, it is one of many found in these plants. You may be familiar with the cannabinoid THC, which is the compound that produces a “high” in those who consume, ingest, or inhale it. CBD is not psychoactive, however.

How Is CBD Extracted?

There are several extraction methods of CBD oil. One of the most common is Carbon Dioxide extraction. CO2 extraction utilizes carbon dioxide to separate CBD oil from the plant. CO2 extraction produces an oil with high amounts of CBD. CO2 extraction is the preferred method of making CBD products because of the quality of the CBD oil, its efficient and safe production, and the high concentration of CBD in the final product.

How Does CBD Work?

The body has naturally occurring cannabinoids. CBD mimics these natural cannabinoids and attaches itself to receptors in the brain. It also promotes the natural production of the body’s own cannabinoids. CB2 receptors, which are associated with CBD, are largely responsible for the immune system, inflammation and pain, as well as anxiety and some motor skills.

It is believed where the body doesn’t produce enough of its own cannabinoids that CBD acts as a sort of surrogate. But not only that, it can also act as a catalyst for the body to generate more of its own. This process decreases inflammation, lowers pain and positively impacts things like memory and heart health.

How Do I Take CBD Oil?

There are several ways to take CBD oil. CBD can be vaped, a tincture placed under the tongue, or cream can be applied topically to a direct area.  In general, the longer the delivery method, the longer the effect. Vaping has a more immediate effect, but only last a couple of hours whereas a tincture placed under the tongue or an edible takes about 30 minutes to feel but can provide relief for up to four to five hours. The dosage of CBD oil and its delivery method impact the duration and immediacy of its benefits.
