Cannabidiol (CBD) oil has been a trending topic in the world of health and wellness in 2018. Many people across the country have turned to the oil in hopes of finding a safe and natural alternative for pain relief, mood disorders and mental health issues, insomnia, and to experience its believed anti-inflammatory effects.
How does it work?
Our bodies are made up of 11 major organ systems. Most of us have a basic understanding of the common ones, such as the respiratory system, the circulatory system, and the reproductive system. A lesser-known one, referred to as the endocannabinoid system (ECS), is where CBD oil is said to respond. The goal of the endocannabinoid system is always homeostasis, or balance within the body. The ECS is made up of two primary receptors: CB1, which are most present in the central nervous system, and CB2, which are found mostly in the immune cells, the gastrointestinal tract, and the peripheral nervous system. When someone takes CBD oil, it binds to the receptors and creates balance wherever is needed in an individual’s body.
Marijuana vs. Hemp
Many people shopping for CBD products are curious to know the differences between it and marijuana. While the hemp and marijuana are closely related, they have very different effects on the body. Hemp (where CBD is derived) contains very little THC (0.3% or less), while marijuana contains anywhere between 15-40% THC. CBD is not known to have any psychoactive effects or to create a “high.”
Is it legal?
All of our CBD oils contain less than 0.3% THC, which make them legal in the state of New York. We also offer CBD products which are guaranteed to contain zero THC. These are ideal for our customers who want the benefits of CBD but are concerned about the THC content in other products. If you want a THC-free CBD product, we recommend any of our MedTerra products, or our new Source Naturals CBD capsules, which are completely free of hemp.
