CBD fіrѕt саmе tо рublіс аttеntіоn in a 2013 CNN documentary саllеd Weed. Thе ріесе, reported bу Dr. Sаnjау Guрtа, featured a lіttlе gіrl іn Colorado named Chаrlоttе, whо hаd a rare, life-threatening form оf epilepsy саllеd Drаvеt syndrome.

At аgе five, Chаrlоttе ѕuffеrеd 300 grand mal ѕеіzurеѕ a week and was always оn thе brink оf a mеdісаl еmеrgеnсу. Thrоugh online rеѕеаrсh, Chаrlоttе’ѕ dеѕреrаtе раrеntѕ heard оf trеаtіng Drаvеt wіth CBD. It wаѕ controversial tо pursue mеdісаl mаrіjuаnа fоr ѕuсh a уоung раtіеnt, but when thеу gave Chаrlоttе oil extracted frоm hіgh-CBD cannabis, hеr seizures ѕtорреd almost соmрlеtеlу. In honor of her progress, high-CBD саnnаbіѕ is ѕоmеtіmеѕ knоwn as Charlotte’s Wеb.

The therapeutic Cannabidiol Products benefits that come from the appropriate application of CBD are apparently unlimited given the current science! Most cannabinoids can bind to both types of receptors — CB1 & CB2. But CB2 receptors are mostly found in the immune system that interrogates with Cannabidiol Products and work as an anti-inflammatory agent for our body. There are immune boosting functions of CB2 that are activated by the proper use of CBD, which includes moderating the intoxicating effects of THC (aka psychoactive or high).

CBD has shown to have in some cases the following effects: non psychoactive (does not cause a high), alerting in low to moderate doses, sedating in high doses, reduces pain, reduces muscle spasms, anti-inflammatory, stops nausea/vomiting, reduces anxiety/depression, counters psychotic thoughts, antioxidant, anticonvulsant, neuroprotectant, and anti-tumor.

The main difference between Cannabidiol oils and tinctures is that CBD oils contain Cannabis ingredients in an oil base, whereas CBD tinctures contain Cannabidiol in an alcohol base.

While both hemp and “marijuana” are theoretically variations of the Cannabis sativa plant, there are major distinctions among them.

In the US, the legal definition of “industrial hemp,” (as defined in Section 7606 of the Agricultural Appropriations Act of 2014), is "the plant Cannabis sativa L. and any part of such plant, whether growing or not, with a delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol concentration of not more than 0.3 percent on a dry weight basis.”

Marijuana generally refers to Cannabis sativa plants that have a high concentration of THC, and the word stems from the recreational use of THC rich cannabis for the purpose of getting “high.” Hemp plants possess a high concentration of CBD, with only traces of THC, and hemp extracts are associated with medicinal use.

The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a biological structure that controls and maintains your health. Endocannabinoids and its receptors are existing in the body, in the brain, different organs, glands, and connective tissues. This system is responsible for helping maintain many of our bodily functions.

Recent science has found that the endocannabinoid system does not just respond to the endocannabinoids produced in the body, but also respond to external cannabinoids like the Cannabidiol, or CBD. However, the Cannabidiol CBD doesn’t directly trigger either CB receptor. Instead, it modifies the receptors' ability to bind to cannabinoids. As well, CBD plays a larger role in the endocannabinoid system: influencing other types of receptors, while also enhancing your natural levels of endocannabinoids by occupying certain enzymes.
