CCell cartridges can be used for traditional vape rigs, marijuana THC vapes, or CBD. This time on the DC Alchemy blog we’re going to take a look at CBD specifically, answering what it is, some of the reported benefits of CBD and more. So if you’re curious about this new wonder compound read on, you’ll know everything you need to soon enough!
What is CBD
CBD is the acronym for cannabidiol. Like THC, it is a phytocannabinoid, or simply a compound derived from the cannabis plant. is like THC in that it is a phytocannabinoid. These compounds react with the human endocannabinoid system (that’s right we have systems in our body meant to work with cannabinoids, bet you didn’t know that!) CBD doesn’t produce the ‘high’ of marijuana, but the substance still interacts with the ECS and is thought to produce a range of impressive benefits. Here are just a few.
What is CBD used for?
The big benefit researchers and users are finding is in pain relief! Plenty of studies have proven the efficacy of CBD in fighting pain, including pain caused by inflammation, arthritis and even incisions from surgery. A lot of what we experience as ‘pain’ is inflammation and swelling in the body around joints or wounds. CBD works to reduce that inflammation and with it bring your pain levels down.
Nerves and Anxiety
There are two particular areas in the brain that are found to have an incredibly important role in managing mood and anxiety, the serotonin receptors and the hippocampus. While the serotonin receptors are a bit more obvious in how they work, the connection between hippocampus and anxiety is an interesting one. Hippocampuses in people who suffer severe anxiety are found to be smaller than normal. So how does CBD help here?
CBD interacts with serotonin receptors (engaging with them and helping them fire correctly). When it comes to potentially undersized hippocampuses however CBD does a lot more! CBD can promote neurogenesis, the creation of new neurons in the brain. Basically brain growth if you want to really simplify it! As new neurons are created and form they can increase the size of the hippocampus, which in turn can help manage anxiety. One study saw a dose of 300mg of CBD was enough to be beneficial in helping manage public speaking nerves.
Many people turn to CBD supplements or oils because of their belief in CBDs power as a sleep aid. Since CBD works with serotonin receptors, they may be right! One study showed that two thirds of participants found themselves getting to sleep easier, and getting more restful sleep. Whether your sleep troubles are caused by anxiety or something else, CBD seems to help be helping many people get their best sleep yet and live healthier lives.
And Maybe More
Those three may be the biggest, most common benefits to CBD and what users are hoping for but the study of CBD is still ongoing. Unlike most medicines, herbs, and such, CBD doesn’t have decades and decades of research and results to comb through and find the exact right amounts for efficacy or the perfect ways to use it for which ailments. These three are just the ones that most recent studies have focused on and found some pretty clear cut results. Some new studies are showing benefits they couldn’t even dream of, including helping heart health!
