I have started a blog. This blog is about cannabis.
It might be a sensitive subject to some, but it is one that I have become very passionate about.
Although there are many ways to ingest cannabis, my blog is not about smoking weed and getting high or stoned. That is the stigma that exists around cannabis and advocates like me are trying to change that. I hope to lessen that stereotype through education about the healing powers of the whole cannabis plant.
I am focusing particularly on CBD (Cannabidiol), an abundant, chemical compound from the cannabinoid family that occurs naturally in the cannabis plant. Scientists have isolated 108 different types of cannabinoids in cannabis.
Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, is probably the best-known part of the cannabis plant thanks to its psychoactive properties – it’s the one that gets you “high” — but CBD is quickly gaining ground due to its potential therapeutic benefits with none of the “high” effects.
Cannabidiol oil is a natural oil which is extracted from the flowers and leaves of the cannabis plant. Quality CBD oil is a supplement to a healthy diet and lifestyle and has powerful benefits to your health which include managing inflammation, levels of stress, sleep and digestion, but it is not a miracle therapy. It will not cure you of any health problems overnight.
CBD helps your body reach and maintain balance by promoting the endocannabinoid system. This system is a complex cell-signalling system in the body identified in the early 1990s by researchers exploring cannabinoids (Compounds found in cannabis). We already know it plays role in regulating a range of functions and processes, including sleep, appetite, mood, memory, reproduction and fertility.
Supplementing the body’s endocannabinoid system with plant-derived cannabinoid oil is a potential way to encourage and maintain wellness. Those facing issues can also benefit from greater equilibrium within the body as a result of a better operating endocannabinoid system.
I have already personally seen the benefits of CBD in myself, family and friends already and I want to share it all with you.
So thank you so much for following along with me. I’ll share my stories, the latest news and information to keep you abreast of what is happening in the cannabis world.
