One of the most beneficial extracts from the cannabis plant is CBD (cannabidiol). Many people overlook the substance because it doesn’t produce a psychoactive “high” like THC. However, its health benefits are vast. Below are some reasons to consider using CBD as part of your health improvement regimen.
Whole Body Health
The endocannabinoid system often needs external cannabinoids to help control the central and peripheral nervous systems. These systems help control how signals are sent throughout the body and help maintain emotion, pain, mood, appetite, motor skills and overall body function. The immune system also plays a role here, as without the necessary cannabinoids it needs to function, it can malfunction or attack itself. CBD appears to actually help improve the immune system.
Reduce Effects of THC
Some dispensaries still don’t post the THC levels in their flowers; lack of information can lead to the over consumption of THC. Overdoing it and becoming “too high” can happen. When it does, it generally leads to an unpleasant experience, especially if edibles were consumed. Luckily, CBD can help mitigate the high caused by THC.
THC sometimes slows the mind making it forgetful and sluggish. CBD helps keep the head nice and clear, assisting in normal function and deterring some of the side effects from THC.
THC-containing products may hinder people’s ability to perform a job safely. CBD, on the other hand, doesn’t hinder job performance. CBD products that contain zero THC can actually help improve work performance by providing relief from pain, inflammation, anxiety, nausea and a myriad of other symptoms.
