You might be surprised about how it actually works
“Take pride in your pain; you are stronger than those who have none” ― Lois Lowry, Gathering Blue
CBD oil is a natural substance that has been shown to alleviate many of the ailments and aches that we experience as humans.
CBD is short for “cannabidiol,” which is one of over 100 chemical compounds found in cannabis plants. This particular compound relates to tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) because it’s just like THC but without the psychoactive effects.
For those who don’t want to get “high” from taking CBD, this difference makes all the difference!
There are so many ways that you can use CBD including vapes, oils, capsules, and more!
How does CBD Oil make you feel?
After taking CBD Oil, many people notice improvements in mood. This is because CBD interacts with neurotransmitters called endocannabinoid neurotransmitters which impact our moods and feelings of anxiety or depression.
These neurotransmitters then pass into areas of the brain that can cause fear or stress responses, but when they are blocked by CBD, the feelings of stress and anxiety are reduced.
Taking CBD can also help your body to relax more quickly after a stressful event because it impacts the cortisol levels in the brain which is what controls our response to stress.
When you take CBD oil before or during something that causes you stress, like exercise, for example, it will reduce the cortisol levels in the body and help you to relax more quickly.
CBD is not just for people who feel pain either! Many athletes use CBD oil before or after their workout because of its natural stress-relieving properties that impact performance, recovery time, and even mental focus.
The most common ways that people take CBD are through capsules, topicals, vaping and using CBD oil.
Can you get ‘high’ from CBD Oil?
CBD may be extracted from a cannabis plant, but it does not create the same “high” or euphoric state as THC or marijuana. CBD may help you feel calm or less anxious, but you will not get high if you consume a CBD-infused oil, tincture, edible, or other product.
Can you overdose on CBD Oil?
Yes, CBD oil can be overdone if you take ‘too much’.
Not everyone knows this, but CBD can cause side effects like drowsiness, low blood pressure, and problems with mood. CBD may also make it difficult for you to remember what you’ve learned or do simple daily tasks like driving or operating heavy machinery. So keep an eye out for any undesirable reactions that you might experience after using CBD oil!
CBD is non-toxic. However, as a warning: There are few studies on toxic CBD levels. It would be difficult to defend ethically from that standpoint. According to a 2011 study published in Current Drug Safety, however, the “toxic” dose of CBD is about 20,000 mg of CBD administered almost all at once
To grasp this, consider that the typical beginning dose for most illnesses is approximately 5-20 mg each day. While dosages up to 1500 mg per day have been investigated in research, most tinctures contain between 100 and 1500 mg in a whole bottle. This implies someone would need to take 13 and 200 full bottles of CBD tincture to take ‘too much’.
Are there any side effects from taking CBD Oil?
CBD, like nearly every other cannabinoid, can have side effects. CBD can cause dry mouth, loose stool, decreased appetite, drowsiness, and tiredness, among other things. CBD may also combine with other medicines you’re taking.
How does CBD Oil soothe your aching legs?
CBD oil’s helpful impact on pain has been documented, and research has shown it. Researchers found that CBD can prevent OA pain and nerve damage in a study published in the journal Pain in December 2017.
According to their findings, because it decreased joint inflammation and acted as a safeguard for the nerves, it did both.
“BD has both anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective properties, which could explain its effect.
When CBD oil is introduced to the body, it starts impacting the receptors in your brain. These receptors control pain, mood, and inflammation.
As a result of this interaction with these receptors, you will feel less pain because the nerve cells won’t be affected by the inflammation so much.
CBD can also dampen your mood swings due to its impact on the neurotransmitters in your brain. If you are feeling so depressed or scared that you don’t want to do anything, taking CBD might help you calm down so you can carry on with your day.
CBD oil can also be found in capsules or taken through vape pens. These methods of taking CBD allow you to get it into your body quickly and without having to taste hemp.
Is CBD Oil legal?
THC is the most well-known component in the cannabis plant. This is the chemical that gives marijuana its notorious high. CBD, on the other hand, does not have psychotropic effects like THC. As a result, it does not create the same effect as smoking, breathing in, or otherwise ingesting marijuana.
The legality of CBD oils and other CBD products is determined by a variety of criteria. Before making a decision, you must consider your geographical location, local legislation, and the presence of any additional cannabinoids in the extract.
CBD oil is known for its ability to soothe pain and anxiety.
If you’re considering using CBD products or if you already are, it’s important that you talk with your doctor before getting started.
CBD may interact negatively with other medications, cause drowsiness or mental confusion, and might not be safe for children under 18 years of age.
