HOLISTIC HEALING & CBD: WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW
CBD is now at the tipping point. With its increasing popularity as a supplement, it seems likely that we’ll see CBD as an ingredient listed on many more products over the next couple of years.
But before you start dosing yourself with CBD, it may be worthwhile to know a little about how it works and its multiple health benefits.
What is CBD?
Cannabis (also known as marijuana, weed, or pot) is a compound that comes from the hemp plant and looks similar to a marijuana leaf but it’s not the same thing.
It is usually smoked like a joint or cigarette, can also be mixed with food such as brownies, or sprinkled on top of foods such as popcorn. Many people also use vaporizers to smoke cannabis to avoid harmful carcinogens and other toxins that are produced during the combustion of cannabis.
Cannabis contains more than 400 chemical compounds called cannabinoids. The two main ones are THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) and CBD (cannabidiol). THC is what causes the “high” feeling while CBD does not. However, as outlined earlier, in this post, we are going to discuss solely CBD, its benefits, and its role in your overall holistic healing.
While some people use it for recreational purposes, cannabis has been used for medicinal purposes for thousands of years and is now being studied worldwide. There is still a lot to learn about how CBD works with our bodies but studies have shown that it can be very effective for treating many illnesses.
