What Is CBD and How Does It Work?

March 19, 2021
Posted by :

Chances are good you have at least heard about the potential health support offered by CBD oil. However, you might not be clear on what it is or how it delivers the powerful benefits many attribute to it. What is CBD and how does it work?

What Is CBD?

CBD stands for cannabidiol. It’s a naturally-occurring oil found in both the hemp plant and in marijuana. It has no effect on the brain, is non-habit forming, and is considered generally safe for most people. So, taking CBD oil will not get you “high”, nor is it addictive.

How Does CBD Oil Work?

CBD works in the body thanks to what’s called the endocannabinoid system. This is a natural part of the body that was only discovered in the 1990s. While its entire function is not yet understood, researchers have found that it plays a role in many different functions, including:

  • Appetite
  • Mood
  • Memory
  • Sleep

There are three components to the system – cannabinoid receptors, enzymes, and cannabinoids themselves. Throughout the body, you will find cannabinoid receptors. Their job is to receive cannabinoids produced by the body. Enzymes are responsible for breaking down cannabinoids, creating endocannabinoids, and making them usable by the body.

There are two types of receptors in the body: CB1 and CB2. Current research shows that CBD oil influences those receptors, perhaps improving performance, although the full function is not yet understood. CBD also affects other receptors in the body, including serotonin receptors, which is perhaps one way that CBD oil helps alleviate pain, inflammation, stress, and anxiety.

Are There Any Side Effects?

There are potential side effects with all-natural supplements, and even some foods. For instance, grapefruit can interfere with some medications. There is some evidence that CBD may interact with some medications, as well. For a small group of people, CBD also raises liver enzymes. Some of the other side effects noticed include fatigue, changes in appetite, and diarrhea.

 

CBD is considered generally safe and works with your body’s endocannabinoid system to help provide relief from everything from depression to PTSD and more. However, if you are currently taking prescription medications, consult your doctor before starting a CBD supplement.

I was taking another brand of CBD... When my friend said she tried Bright Energy, I wanted to try it too. I thought it was more expensive ... but my friend pointed out the dosages were completely different... Bright Energy lasts longer. And, with the auto-ship discount, it is even more cost effective!
