Pure Hemp CBD Need-to-Know Facts

Pure hemp CBD is a great alternative for those looking to relieve pain or illness. Research shows that there are many healing effects that come with CBD when it reacts with your endocannabinoid system. Despite what people say, pure hemp CBD does not give you psychoactive effects like THC would. But, CBD does provide additional benefits that can help many.

Pure Hemp CBD Facts

Cannabinoid in the cannabis plant

Of the many cannabinoids in a cannabis plant, cannabidiol or CBD is one of the most dominant. It is not only in the marijuana plant but CBD can also be in industrial hemp. Medical marijuana strains that have low THC but high CBD are taken by people who suffer from various health effects.

Non-psychoactive

Different than THC, CBD does not provide the body or mind with psychoactive effects. This means CBD will not make you feel “high”. Unlike THC which binds to your CB1 receptor, which is responsible for mind-altering effects, CBD does not act directly with the CB1 receptor.

Potential Medical benefits

There are many research studies that focus on the effects of CBD. Although most studies use animals as their test subjects and few have used human patients. CBD works with your endocannabinoid system to release signals to various parts of your body that fix imbalances within the your body. Studies have shown CBD to have the following properties:

  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Antioxidant
  • Anti-nausea
  • Anti-tumoral
