CBD is a cannabinoid.
A cannabinoid is one of a class of diverse chemical compounds that acts on cannabinoid receptors, AKA the Endocannabinoid system in cells that alter neurotransmitter release in the brain.
The ECS controls a wide variety of functions in the body. Pain, Nausea, Vomiting, Anxiety, Seizures, Appetite, Spasms are all impacted by the ECS. The endocannabinoid system is a biological system composed of endocannabinoids, which are endogenous lipid-based retrograde neurotransmitters that bind to cannabinoid receptors, and cannabinoid receptor proteins that are expressed throughout the vertebrate central nervous system and peripheral nervous system.
Although inflammation is often seen in a negative light, it’s a vital immune response to infection. Therefore, preventing inflammation when it is actually needed can lower immune function and make people more susceptible to disease. CBD and other cannabinoids may be able to help balance that function in the body.
CBD has significant therapeutic attributes. Many people are seeking holistic alternatives to pharmaceuticals with harsh side effects – medicine more in synch with natural processes. CBD can provide relief for chronic pain, anxiety, inflammation, depression and many other conditions.
In the botanical world, there are, broadly speaking, two kinds of cannabis – hemp plants and drug plants. Hemp plants include plants grown for fiber and plants grown for seed oil. Drug plants include intoxicating THC-rich plants and non-intoxicating CBD-rich plants. The main difference between hemp plants and drug plants is resin content. Industrial hemp plants are low-resin plants. Drug plants are high-resin plants
The contents of the refined CBD extract are what determines if the CBD extract is full spectrum, broad spectrum, or CBD isolate.
– Full-spectrum CBD is full of all the terpenes, cannabinoids, flavonoids, and fatty acids found in hemp, all of which have therapeutic value of their own and help create what’s know as the entourage effect.
– Broad-spectrum CBD is full-spectrum CBD without any THC. Like Full Spectrum CBD, the other compounds found within the plant are preserved in the extract; however, like CBD Isolate, THC is completely removed. Because Broad Spectrum CBD contains multiple cannabinoids, it can deliver the enhanced benefits of the “entourage effect,” without the risk of psychoactive effects of THC.
CBD Distillate: A CBD distillate contains different cannabinoids, terpenes, and plant materials.
– CBD Isolate: CBD isolate is CBD in it’s purest form. It is basically very much how it sounds—it is isolated cannabidiol. During the extraction process, everything is removed or filtered out of the hemp plant except for cannabidiol. This leaves you with a pure CBD product

Go Slow; use Titration; try Micro dosing
– Go Slow: it is always a good practice to pace yourself with any new product, go slow.
– Titration: is the process of determining the medication dose that reduces your symptoms to the greatest possible degree while avoiding as many side effects as possible; making slight adjustments to how much medicine you are taking.
– Micro dosing: is a technique for studying the behavior of drugs through the administration of doses so low they are unlikely to produce effects but high enough to allow a cellular response.
