Cannabidiol (CBD) is a chemical compound in the cannabis plant. Unlike the more known molecule, THC, CBD is completely nonpsychoactive and boasts numerous health benefits.
Because CBD can have calming effects, sleeping longer and having better quality sleep is likely to occur. Due to the calming effects, CBD can also combat the effects of insomnia. All of these together can help you reach deep, R.E.M. sleep!
Full of Antioxidants
Antioxidants are important! They stop free radicals from damaging cells in our bodies, they keep our immune systems strong and can even slow the stages of pre-mature aging in our skin.
You Won’t Get High
What many people get wrong about CBD is that they think it has the same effects as THC. This is incorrect. THC, which is found in marijuana is responsible for the psychoactive effects such as euphoria, anxiety, and short-term memory loss. Our CBD is from hemp, and contains less than .3% of THC, which is not enough to cause psychoactive effects.
Ease Anxiety & Stress
When CBD is in the body, it reacts with the part of the brain that releases serotonin. Serotonin is a chemical that more or less regulates your mood, and having low levels has been shown to cause depression and anxiety. So when CBD is ingested, it acts to trigger more serotonin, which can alleviate depression and anxiety.
Ways To Ingest CBD
There are many ways to get CBD into our bodies. Some of the ways include using topical creams, CBD tinctures, and ingesting CBD oils. Also, many beverages now include CBD! With so many options, getting CBD is easier than ever.
