Everything you need to know about CBD

Apr 20, 2018 @ Project Juice

CBD is like the designated driver that keeps everyone safe after a night out. Here’s everything you need to know about this safe and natural way to relax.

 

WHAT IS CBD?

CBD, short for cannabidiol, is a completely natural and non-psychoactive compound well-documented to help with anxiety, insomnia, and inflammation among other things. It is one of over 100 cannabinoid compounds found in the cannabis plant. 

Pure CBD is cold-extracted from organic hemp plants grown in Colorado. US law defines hemp as all of the parts of any cannabis sativa plant containing no psychoactive properties.

 

WHAT DOES CBD DO FOR YOUR BODY?

Currently, CBD is known to directly affect our vanilloid, adenosine, and serotonin receptors important for pain modulation, our sleep-wake cycle, and mood and stress, respectively.

 

WILL CBD MAKE ME HIGH?

Absolutely NOT! THC, tetrahydrocannabinol, is the only cannabinoid with psychoactive properties. CBD does not act on the same neural pathways within the brain as THC does, and will not produce a high.

 

HOW WILL I FEEL?

CBD has a full body relaxation affect. You can expect your tense muscle to relax and your nerves to calm. Everybody is different. Some feel the effects immediately while others need some time for it to build in their system or even a higher dosage.

 

HOW MUCH IS ENOUGH?

Again, everyone is different so there is no right amount perfect for every single person across the board. Start slow and with a small dose, we suggest 2mg, and work your way up from there.
