What is Cannabidiol?
A lot of interest has been generated recently about the health benefits of supplementing with Cannabidiol and for good reason. Cannabidiol or CBD for short, is a non-psychoactive compound found in hemp and marijuana plants which has been used as a type of medicine for hundreds if not thousands of years. Due to the recent advances in molecular science and technologies, researchers have been able to better understand CBD and its effects on the human body and more specifically our endocannabinoid system. Cannabinoids like Cannabidiol are able to provide real health benefits by interacting with our brain’s endocannabinoid system, which is the vital molecular system for helping maintain healthy homeostasis. This communication between cannabinoids and our endocannabinoid system helps our body remedy any deficiencies. Our endocannabinoid system is made up of cell receptors which help modulate and interact with other pain control and anti-inflammatories systems. CBD, as you might be wondering, does not get you high! Especially when your CBD product has been extracted from the hemp plant. Generally speaking, hemp contains a much higher quantity of CBD with little to no THC. CBD, unlike THC, interacts with the body’s CB2 receptors which are important mediators for the suppression of pain and inflammation. CBD also prevents the breakdown of the body’s natural ‘bliss molecule’ anandamide, which creates a natural feeling of calm and well-being and suppresses pain response in the nervous system.
Individuals suffering from, inflammation, pain, anxiety, psychosis, seizures, spasms, and nausea can find much needed relief when supplementing with full spectrum CBD. Studies have also seen CBD’s potential benefits in cancer treatment, as cannabinoids are known to interfere with tumor neovascularization, cancer cell migration, adhesion, invasion and metastasization. As CBD has become more and more popular as an alternative medicine, questions arise as how to best consume CBD and in what quantities. These are very important questions, which we’ll get to in a bit, but understanding where your CBD comes from is just as important, as you need to make sure that the CBD you’re purchasing is of high quality and cultivated in a State which doesn’t specifically restrict the cultivation of Hemp. The quality of the product will affect the potential benefits you could be experiencing. Focusing on companies which provide extracted CBD products from organically grown industrial hemp is a good place to start. As this will increase the chance that the product you are purchasing is in accordance with the current laws and regulations. This will also increase your likelihood that the product you’re purchasing has been rigorously tested for safety and potency reasons. Though, CBD is naturally incredibly safe and has even been seen to have no known negative side effects, you want to insure that the quality and quantity you are consuming is enough to make a noticeable difference. A good rule of thumb is to start off consuming between 25mg-30mg a day for the first few weeks, which is enough time for your body to adjust to the new regiment, and then you can modify your dosage from there.
How to Supplement with Cannabidiol/CBD
A great way to start off supplementing with full spectrum CBD is by consuming CBD in Capsule or Soft Gel form. High quality CBD Capsules are made through an extraction process which utilizes CO2. To extract all the terpenes from the hemp plant while retaining the molecular integrity of the unique chemical compounds requires a series of chambers and tubes which control temperature and pressure. The combination of the right temperature and pressure causes the CBD tincture to separate from other plant matter. After a lengthy extraction process, the oil is separated and then encapsulated and sold throughout the country. Helia CBD Soft Gels are a great way to introduce newcomers to CBD. Soft Gels, like Capsules, are incredibly easy in controlling dosing as other forms of administration can be rather troublesome in comparison. To obtain high concentrations of CBD in our products, we have to use high-CBD hemp strains. As CBD levels in these different strains vary from plant to plant and strain to strain, we have to create continuity and consistency in our products by implementing a specialized extraction process. By working with suppliers to administer enclosed lean manufacturing processes, we prevent the degradation of the plants natural benefits. This process insures we produce a premium high quality product for our customers. Our soft gels come in 10mg or 25mg CBD formulations. Our extraction process is designed to maintain the integrity of the whole plant has to offer. This insures our soft gels contain the available terpenes CBN, CBC, CBG and other phytocannabinoids. Created with water soluble liquid, allows our soft gels to be more easily absorbed and made bio-available over traditional oil capsules.
Conclusion on CBD Pills
It is important to understand that most of the traditional methods of treating different ailments like pain, inflammation, and anxiety are considered detrimental to the human body. From the early research which has been conducted In Vitro and in small human studies have reaffirmed the fact that CBD is a nontoxic compound which acts with your body to help with a variety of different ailments. Studies on terminally ill cancer patients have shown that ingesting 700mg, which is basically an entire bottle of Helia Soft Gels, a day for 6 weeks did not show any toxic effects in humans. As CBD becomes more and more popular, the necessary large group human studies will be administered and peer reviewed.Medical Disclaimer
