What is CBD?
The term CBD is the acronym for cannabidiol, one of the cannabinoids found in the hemp plant. There are over one hundred known cannabinoids that have medicinal properties. The known medicinal properties range from pain relief, anxiety reduction, reduced inflammation, nerve protectant, and more.
One cannabinoid may be problematic for some. THC, a psychoactive cannabinoid, could cause a “high” in certain doses. However, THC cannabinoids may help with a variety of problems. What if you don’t want to get high, but want the benefits? The good news is small amounts like the federal legal amount of 0.3% of THC, could provide health benefits without the high. 502 Hemp’s products, processed by Commonwealth Extracts, start with organic Sativa Hemp plants, naturally low THC plant, but with high levels of other cannabinoids such as CBD. The hemp extracts go through third-party testing to ensure THC levels are of benefit without the high while ensuring the quality of the product. The end result is quality hemp extract oil containing CBD and other cannabinoids that may naturally improve your health.
How Could CBD products impact your health?
Your body has an Endocannabinoid System (ECS) existing within your Central Nervous System and Peripheral Nervous System. When Cannabinoids, via CBD products, enter the body they interact or “plug into” your ECS. From there, your ECS uses Cannabinoids for what your body needs in order to reach homeostasis. If anxiety needs to be addressed, cannabinoids working through the ECS can calm nerves and trigger relaxing biological chemicals like GABA in the brain. If pain is an issue, CBD through ingestion can work with the ECS to calm nerves, reduce inflammation, and in recent studies have shown to protect nerves. CBD topicals can work with the peripheral nervous system and ECS through the skin the same way. Cannabinoids in the Endocannabinoids System can adapt to your needs naturally with little to no side effects.
