We all know what insomnia is, but do we know what causes it? Better question, especially for those that struggle with insomnia is, how can I improve this? Quality sleep is essential to overall improved body function, it even reduces the risk of heart disease and stroke. Here we explore how CBD can possibly help you get a good night's sleep.
One of CBD's biggest success stories is the findings of its therapeutical properties in potentially relieving anxiety and better yet without psychoactive side effects. This is the tip of the iceberg for what this cannabinoid can do and we look to science for how it can be used in the future to treat acute or chronic stress.
The term ‘entourage effect’ was introduced in 1998 to describe the way that various elements found in cannabis plants regulate the plant’s psychoactive effects. A simple defintion, yet a complex science, for CBD (cannabidiol) is just one of over 100 chemical compounds known as ‘cannabinoids’ found in cannabis plants. What does the future of medicine look like from such botanical synergy?
Let's take a bit of deep dive into one of the most popular wellness ingredients as of recent years — CBD. Read on how it's different from its sister strain 'THC', the benefits of CBD for your endocannabinoid system, and if it really does meet the hype.
Since the CBD rage, there has been some confusion over the difference between CBD and its sister THC, primarily if CBD can provide the same "high". To clear the air, CBD has no psychoactive effects and won’t give you a high, but don’t get disappointed yet because some scientific studies have indicated that CBD reduces anxiety and has plenty of other benefits to compete.
If you are looking into the benefits of CBD, you first have to start by investigating what your endocannabinoid system is and how it responds to phytocannabinoids, chemical elements found in cannabis plants. These cannabinoids number over 100 and most prominently include CBD and THC.
