An Intro to CBD
CBD is a growing trend that has taken off in the last couple of years. According to The Hemp Business Journal, over the next three years, the CBD market is anticipated to grow by 700%. Here at Farm CBD we have already started to see the diverse variety of CBD products becoming available and this trend will only increase as CBD becomes part of the mainstream consumer conscious through media attention and increasing ubiquitousness on the high street.
At Farm CBD, we believe that CBD should be considered as a journey into a new experience, it is important a first time user does their research and knows what to expect when they take CBD and the effects it has on your body. To help further your understanding, we have listed below some questions and answers we often get asked.
So, what is CBD?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of the 100+ compounds found in the cannabis plants hemp and marijuana. CBD does not cause a ‘high’ effect and can offer relief and benefits without the feelings of dysphoria and lethargy (the effects seen in THC).
How does CBD work?
It all starts with the Endocannabinoid System (ECS), which is a biological system composed of endocannabinoids, which are internal lipid-based retrograde neurotransmitters that bind to cannabinoid receptors, and cannabinoid receptor proteins that are expressed throughout the mammalian central nervous system and peripheral nervous system.
How then does CBD affect the Endocannabinoid System?
The endocannabinoid systems function is to respond to the internal cannabinoids produced within the human body
Scientists have learned that the system will also recognise and respond to cannabinoids from external sources, including cannabidiol (CBD).
It has been discovered that the endocannabinoid system can by manipulated by introducing external cannabinoids.
