Okay I admit it. I LOVE CBD! I'm obsessed with CBD, in fact. People who know me think, "Oh there goes that CBD nut again, all she ever talks about is CBD!" Alrighty then! I'm not a nut. Let's put that down. CBD hemp oil is the fastest growing (excuse the pun) segment of the health food industry right now and for very good reasons. People who start taking CBD hemp oil LOVE IT! Did you know that prescription drug use is beginning to take a back seat to CBD hemp oil? Yes CBD! Read this article, "Big Trouble for Big Pharma as Nearly 50% of People Report Quitting Pills for CBD." by CARY WEDLER.
So what is this CBD oil stuff? CBD isn't a gimmick or a flash in the pan. CBD is "cannabidiol," the chemical compound, or "cannabinoid" in cannabis that does not get you high! CBD can be extracted from marijuana (the cannabis plant that is know to make people high when heated). Or CBD can be extracted from the industrial hemp plant, the same plant known for over 25,000 uses such as, paper products, ropes, sails, flags, clothing, fuel, paint, building supplies and food. So CBD can come from either marijuana or hemp which are both cannabis plants. Cannabinoids are found throughout the plant kingdom, not exclusively in cannabis. Cannabinoids bind to the receptors in the body in a lock and key fashion connecting the chemicals in the plants to the receptors in the body. This chemical reaction starts in this amazing mini-chemical factory inside to the human body scientists call the Endocannabinoid System. If you want to learn more about CBD...
In my opinion almost everyone needs cannabis in some form or another to feed their Endocannabinois System which most often is probably deficient in cannabinoids. Technically we should be allowed to pick it and eat cannabis in the raw form just like lettuce. Our Creator put it here for a reason. Eating raw cannabis does not cause a high or intoxication. Only when the marijuana plant is heated does marijuana turn the chemical THCa into THC causing a high if ingested. Hemp on the other hand, when heated or smoked by the garbage bag full wouldn't get someone high because their isn't enough THC in hemp. Eating cannabis out of the garden is usually cost prohibitive and most often illegal in light of all of the laws surrounding cannabis and hemp. Really? You might be huffing and puffing at me now. You might be thinking, "How dare you suggest that I need pot in my diet!" I am suggesting that the human body can benefit from the nutrients and phytochemicals in the cannabis plant in food form as nature intended. CBD hemp oil and seeds are now currently classified as a super food as long as it is sold and tested to be with a maximum THC threshhold of <.3%. (See this site: www.hempking.weebly.com for more nutritional information on cannabis.) These extremely low percentiles of THC render the individual CBD product legal to consume and sell throughout the United States without a prescription or permit. CBD has a counterbalancing effect as well on the minuscule amount of THC contained in the legal concentrations of CBD oil extract. High CBD strains diminish and disable any psychoactive traits in the cannabis plant. If you are looking to get high, CBD will only relax you or improve alertness depending on the dose and strain, it will not give you a buzz. In fact, CBD is known to be a buzz kill.
So yes indeed our bodies need cannabinoids, and cannabis is the best source. Our Endocannabinoid Systems in our bodies use phytocannabinoids from plants and cannabis to carry out bodily functions related to homeostatsis, appetite control, pain management, alertness and sleep functions, just to name a few. And because our own human bodies manufacture these chemicals called endocannabinoids inside its own Endocannabinoid System to bring about homeostasis, the phytocannabinoids in nature work the same way, in harmony with endocannabinoids made by the body and phytocannabinoids mimic the very functions of endocannabinoids.
The CBD Rich Full Spectrum "Entourage Effect" and What it All Means":
CBD rich cannabis strains are being bred by cannabis scientists to bring back plants with lower THC values. Preliminary studies have discovered that CBD can possibly induce a relaxing state, whereby too much THC in a cannabis strain, absent of significant amounts of CBD, can cause irritability. Scientists believe that CBD and THC work together synergistically. Today it is believed that over 200 phytocannabinoids and terpenes exist in plants throughout nature and at least 100 phytocannabinoiods and terpenes exist in the cannabis plant. These additional phytocannabinoid chemical compounds are often present in finished CBD hemp oil beginning from the raw materials of the cannabis plant and these valuable chemical compounds still remain intact in the CBD hemp oil after the extraction process is complete. Industry standards call cannabinoid rich CBD oil, Full Spectrum CBD hemp oil. This means the CBD oil, when extracted from the plant material has maintained the majority of it's nutritional chemical composition profile much like an apple retains most of it's nutrients when put into a mechanical juicing machine. Together in concert with the CBD, other important phytocannabinoids (CBG, CBN and CBD), terpenes, vitamins, minerals, enzymes, flavonoids, omega fatty acids, amino acids, and proteins present in the cannabis plant create what scientists call the "Enourage Effect" - a synergy of nutrients reacting together in a powerful way like a super food densely packed with the best of mother nature's constituents.
CBD Cannabis Sales are Poised to Sky-Rocket:
In 2015 consumer sales of hemp were $90 million in addition to another $112 million in marijuana infused CBD products. Currently those numbers are blooming. According to Forbes over $450+ million in hemp sales are expected in the United States for each consecutive upcoming year. Further estimates predict that the CBD portion of the cannabis sales market will boom into a $2.1 billion industry by 2020, and upwards to $3 billion by 2021. The total CBD market alone in 2016 was $216 million.
There is a proliferation of discussion about CBD hemp oil both online and in the media noting that THC users and non-THC users alike are curious enough to say they want to give CBD a try too! And they are. In droves!
Through perseverance and education coming primarily from the cannabis movement itself, as well as from intelligent cannabis researchers and scientists, the negative stigma surrounding cannabis continues to diminish. Rightfully so. The spotlight is now on CBD (cannabidiol) and news is seeping into the mainstream about CBD's known and unfolding medicinal benefits. Medical marijuana began in 2013 in the United States in earnest as the cannabis advocates who knew the truth about the sacred plant never gave up. Now there are over 800 different kinds of CBD products, such as: CBD oil tincture, CBD candies and gummies, CBD tea and coffee, CBD vape, CBD lozenges and capsules, CBD crystalline for cooking, CBD infused coconut oil, and even CBD transdermal patches, eye drops and nasal sprays. And CBD keeps getting more and more interesting.
