When it comes to overall health and wellness, cannabidiol, or CBD, has become one of the most popular choices for consumers today. Due to its lack of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which is the main psychoactive chemical in the cannabis plant, CBD is a perfectly legal substance that contains all of the healing properties found in cannabis without delivering a “high” along with them.
Many people are curious about the benefits, uses, and side effects associated with it.
Where does CBD come from?
CBD is a natural substance that has recently become very popular. CBD is extracted from cannabis, is one of 113 substances known as cannabinoids that are found in the plant, and accounts for about 40% of its extracts.
Because CBD contains a multitude of natural properties, it is seen as a “green” way to promote health and wellness. While there is still not a great deal of research to outline the specific health benefits of CBD, there is plenty of evidence to show the its positive impact.
How CBD interacts with the body
CBD inherits many of the qualities possessed by the marijuana plant, including anti-inflammatory and anti-anxiolytic properties. These properties are what allow CBD to offer relief. This happens when CBD enters the body and interacts with certain receptors within the Endocannabinoid system (ECS), which is responsible for memory, high cognition, emotion, and motor coordination.
These receptors are classified as CB1 and CB2. CB1 receptors are located in the brain and throughout the central nervous system, and CB2 receptors are distributed throughout the major organs in the body and directly impact the muscular, immune, and cardiovascular systems. A lack of cannabinoids within the ECS can lead to many health issues, so when CBD is absorbed by the body and interacts with these receptors, it helps equalize this deficiency and provides relief.

Uses of CBD products
Another huge benefit of CBD is the several different ways you can use it. Whether you’re more inclined to use vapors, topical treatments, tinctures, or gummies, there is sure to be a form of CBD that works best for you. While it mostly comes down to personal preference, knowing more about some of the different CBD products can help you decide.
Like vapors, tinctures come in oil form and are used as either drops or sprays. A tincture is the second-quickest way to get CBD into the bloodstream, taking about 15 to 30 minutes, making this product ideal for those with anxiety. The perfect tincture dosage can be difficult to determine, so it’s always best to consult a CBD expert before using any trial-and-error tactics.
Softgels have become a mainstream way of taking CBD. They are a popular solution for many because they offer a consistent, predictable level of CBD each time, which may be perfect for those attempting to reach certain daily goals.
Using topical CBD products may seem out of the ordinary but they become an ideal way to find relief from muscle soreness and joint tightness. Our CBD salves promote hydrated, healthy and nourished skin.
Other Pharm Organics products include pet treats/oils and lotions.
