What Is CBD?
CBD, which is short for the word cannabidiol, is a simple chemical compound that can be extracted from the hemp plant. CBD is just one of the many compounds that can be extracted from the hemp plant, but is the compound that has shown the most potential health benefits. Hemp and CBD DO NOT contain the psychoactive properties that are responsible for getting you “high.” It is very important to remember that you will not become intoxicated from ingesting CBD. This is why it is now federally legal in the United States!
While your body may respond to the CBD molecules and produce certain effects, being high is absolutely not one of those effects. CBD is extracted from the hemp plant and often you will find it in oil form. CBD oil is what you will find in a cartridge for your luxury vapes. Your body is able to absorb, and utilize these CBD molecules through naturally-occurring receptors in the body called the endocannabinoid system.
What Is The Endocannabinoid System?
As we just mentioned, CBD works in your body by binding with the endocannabinoid system. The endocannabinoid system is part of your body’s endocrine system, which is a series of glands throughout your body that produce hormones that affect a variety of bodily functions. The endocrine system is responsible for managing respiration, metabolism, reproduction, sexual development, and overall growth.
According to the Endocrine Society, in this system “hormones are produced by glands and sent into the bloodstream to the various tissues in the body. They send signals to those tissues to tell them what they are supposed to do. When the glands do not produce the right amount of hormones, diseases develop that can affect many aspects of life.”
Vaping CBD through your luxury vape allows those molecules into your body and endocrine system. The endocannabinoid receptors are located throughout your body, which is why CBD is believed to help with so many ailments — it can go anywhere and everywhere!
What Are Some Potential Benefits of CBD?
There is a very long list of symptoms, ailments, and conditions that CBD is believed to assist with. However, conclusive research is still in the works by scientists. Therefore, as it stands right now, CBD is not an official cure or treatment for anything. However, many people have reported personal results when using CBD as part of a care regimen for a variety of things. Some of the ailments that people have reported using CBD for are:
- Neurological Disorders
- Sleep Disorders
- Eating Disorders
- Chronic Joint Pain
- Minor aches and pains
Please keep in mind that CBD has not been formally approved as a treatment or cure for any of those conditions. Incorporating CBD into your wellness regimen is a personal decision and should be discussed with your doctor.
