What is CBD?
CBD is one of the many cannabinoids (compounds) in the cannabis plant. Every day there is more research on the possible therapeutic uses of CBD.
Two of the most studied compounds in the cannabis plant are delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD).
These compounds have different effects. Until recently, the best known compound was THC. The most active component that produces psychoactive effects.
CBD is the opposite. It is non-psychoactive, does not alter mood and does not cause side effects in the person who uses it. However, it has been proven that its use can bring many benefits and cause significant changes in the body.
What is CBD oil?
CBD oil is an extract of the hemp or cannabis plant.
Once extracted from the plant, it is diluted with “carrier” oils such as olive oil, hemp seed oil or coconut oil (MCT). Being highly lipophilic, cannabis or hemp extracts need a good "carrier" so that our body can easily assimilate and absorb them and thus improve the bioavailability of CBD.
Combining CBD oil with oils and foods rich in fatty substances helps increase its absorption. For this reason, at Weedness CBD, we use coconut oil (MCT) to manufacture our oils. Medium Chain Triglyceride (MCT) oil contains medium-length chains of fats called triglycerides. Due to their shorter length, MCTs are easily digested and many health benefits are related to how the body processes these fats.
How does CBD oil work?
All cannabinoids produce effects in the body by interacting with the CB1 and CB2 receptors, which are part of our endocannabinoid system (ECS).
CB1 receptors are present throughout the body, particularly in the brain. These receptors are responsible for coordinating movement, pain, emotion, mood, thinking, appetite, memories, and other functions.
CB2 receptors are more common in the immune system. They are responsible for inflammation and pain. CBD, by interacting with the body's own endocannabinoid system, allows the stimulation of the same and the suppression of the activity of certain neurons, muscle fibers that create pathologies when they are hyperactive (inflammation, headaches, mental stress...). By working in this way, it allows the use of the body's own systems to treat problems such as stress, insomnia, muscle pain and more, in a completely natural way and with the help of the most powerful tools at our disposal. Those of our own body.
Benefits of using CBD oil?
CBD has been shown to have anti-inflammatory, analgesic, neuroprotective, anticonvulsant, antioxidant, anti-nausea, anti-emetic, anti-tumor, anxiolytic, anti-psychotic, immunomodulatory and craving-reducing effects for various drugs and alcohol. For all these reasons, its use can be of great benefit in pathologies such as:
-Anxiety and depression.
-Autism spectrum disorder.
-Allergies or Asthma.
-Neurodegenerative diseases (for example, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's and Multiple Sclerosis).
-Chronic inflammatory diseases such as Chronic polyarthritis, Crohn's disease, or Inflammatory bowel disease.
-Accompaniment of chemotherapy.
CBD Oil from Weedness CBD
At Weedness CBD we are working with broad spectrum CBD oils. Like Full Spectrum CBD, the beneficial compounds found within the plant are retained in the extract and psychoactive components (THC) are completely removed to ensure maximum customer safety. As a carrier oil we use coconut oil. Medium Chain Triglyceride (MCT) oil contains medium-length chains of fats called triglycerides. Due to their shorter length, MCTs are easily digested and many health benefits are related to how the body processes these fats.
All of our oils are expertly formulated using different amounts of cannabinoids and different terpenes so that they can be tailored to each need. Whether you need to improve rest and regulate sleep, stimulate and improve physical condition, increase libido, or want to maintain balance and harmony in your body, we at Weedness CBD have created it all for you.
What is CBG (Cannabigerol)?
Cannabigerol or CBG is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid found in the cannabis or hemp plant. This cannabinoid is usually more abundant in genetics with low levels of THC and high levels of CBD.
CBG is effective in fighting inflammation, pain, nausea, and helps slow the growth of cancer cells. Research has shown that it also significantly reduces intraocular eye pressure caused by glaucoma. Strains high in CBG will be beneficial in treating conditions such as inflammatory bowel disease, Crohn's disease, and cancer.
