What is CBD

What is CBD and how does it work?

Cannabidiol or CBD is one of the many compounds within cannabis plants. These compounds are found in molecules called phytocannabinoids. Cannabinoids all work in a unique way to address imbalances within the body. When cannabinoids, such as CBD, bind to CB1 and CB2 receptors, the Endocannabinoid system sends them to the appropriate channels to bring your body back to homeostasis.

Unlike many other cannabinoids, CBD does not directly affect these receptors – avoiding the common “high” that many customers may be familiar with. Instead, CBD has an indirect effect.

CBD and the body

CBD stimulates the body’s natural endogenous cannabinoids which send signals to activate those receptors to do their job naturally. CB1 receptors are in the nervous system, glands, organs and connective tissue. These are personal to us, affecting our mood, appetite, thoughts and other active brain function. Our CB1 receptors support the attributes of ourselves that others notice. CB2 receptors are our “behind the scenes” receptors. CB2 manages our inflammation and pain, working through our immune system.

Natural cannabinoids within your bodywork with these receptors(CB1 and CB2) to prevent your nervous system from misfiring or acting defectively. Natural cannabinoid deficiency will lead to negative effects on your body’s nervous system and other bodily functions. Much like any other form of deficiency, your body can show signs of this imbalance due to a lack of exposure to cannabinoids. While we are not claiming that everyone “needs” cannabinoids for any single reason, Infinite CBD reminds our customers to lead a full life, crafted by a healthy diet, consistent exercise and comfortable internal balance.

The Difference between CBD and THC

Many customers draw comparisons between CBD and THC to make the chemical a bit more understandable. An easy rule of thumb is to remember that CBD has the potential to bring consumers similar results to that of THC without having to experience the famed “high” of the cannabis plant. Although this can be true in many cases, CBD works much more effectively as an endocannabinoid modular.

In short, this means your Endocannabinoid System, or ECS, is prepped through an overall balancing to thwart any inconsistencies that may result from an oncoming sickness. The best offence is a good defence – in this comparison anyway.
Although CBD can be found within every marijuana plant, Infinite CBD uses purely hemp-derived CBD isolate. Simply put, hemp plants produce astronomically more CBD than marijuana. Marijuana, on the other hand, produces much more THC than CBD. Each and every batch of our hemp and CBD isolate is tested to ensure <0.3% of THC.

The natural cannabinoids within your body work with these receptors to prevent your nervous system from misfiring or acting defectively. Natural cannabinoid deficiency will lead to negative effects on your body’s nervous system and body as a whole. Your body needs cannabinoids when endocannabinoid deficient just like when you take vitamin D for bone strength. This is because our body needs the right balance of cannabinoids to keep your nervous system and body in good health.

Many describe CBD as being like THC, just without the psychoactive effects. Although this is true, CBD works as an endocannabinoid modular. This means when a disease starts to take over your body it will create an imbalance within a body system. The CBD then works to get those systems to balance back to where they should be; healthy, working condition.

How pure is it?

Although CBD is in the marijuana plant, Infinite CBD uses pure hemp-derived CBD isolate that contains minimal amounts of THC. Our CBD is straight from an industrial hemp farm that produces pure and clean, testing above 99 percent, CBD isolate.

The cannabinoids attach to specific receptors to provide effects to the: hippocampus for memory and learning, cerebral cortex for decision making and emotional behavior, cerebellum for motor control and coordination, putamen for movement and learning, hypothalamus for body temperature and appetite, and amygdala for emotions.

In conclusion, the vanilloid receptor also known as TRPV1 regulates inflammation, body temperature and pain perception when bound with CBD. These receptors detect a large range of temperatures. This is the same receptor that is triggered when you eat a habanero pepper or something with spice.
