CBD is a nonintoxicating cannabinoid within the cannabis Sativa strain. The legal version of this plant and is referred to as hemp. It was noticed when the genetics of cannabis were used to make a product that was low in THC but high in CBD. This story from a family with a girl who suffered from multiple seizers. Modern medicine offered her a chemical-induced coma but not before mentioning this cannabinoid and sure enough, they tried it and that girl is seizure-free to the best of my knowledge. Since then it has shown up in a number of products ranging from infused candies, ointments, even hair masks.
People have found advantages to using CBD from Lyme’s Disease, Fibromyalgia, Pain, Stress, Anxiety, Skin Conditions, Burns, Bone Loss, and much more. CBD interacts with your endocannabinoid system or ECS. This system is responsible for the bodies’ Auto-Immune and nervous system. We seem to have science suggesting that the molecule interacts with these systems unlike THC but with some of the same benefits.
Interaction with the ECS is quite unique. Our body produces what’s called Endogenous Cannabinoids. Endogenous means it’s actually made by your own body. Exogenous Cannabinoids are the ones that come from outside of the body like CBD! CBD is very odd in how it works, THC is small enough to bond into these areas causing the “high” but CBD doesn’t really fit. They sit around these receptors.
They call on your body to produce more Endogenous Cannabinoids and inhibit your body’s ability to break them down. The best way to describe the process without using science terms boring you to death is, adding CBD into your daily routine is like putting a conductor on the ESC train. CBD can send a message to a part of your ECS causing it to make those Endogenous cannabinoids somewhere you may need them. It can also stop your body from breaking it down as quickly.
The ECS was discovered in the 1990s, then it was known to regulate homeostasis within the body. The ECS regulates a lot of stuff so I won’t bore you with the details though they’re provided here. I can say this stuff is awesome and if you’re still wondering about CBD.
“the most overlooked thing today in CBD product is nanotechnology. CBD Living is a company using nanotechnology to produce their entire product including their infused water”
What is nanotechnology in CBD?
In laymen’s terms, nanotech is a process used to create a more easily absorbed particle of CBD. It may sound easy, but it is a highly scientific process takes place on the molecular level.
In the process, extracting CBD particles from hemp plants and then create nanoparticles. These are significantly smaller than what was originally extracted. These particles are so small that they can pass through the bloodstream much easier. Creating a product with better bioavailability. This refers to the amount of substance that can actually be absorbed by the body. Remember, crossing the blood-brain barrier isn’t easy.
Some Proof leaning towards the use of this more in products.
Anubhav Pratap Singh, Ph.D., is an assistant professor of food processing at the University of British Columbia. When referring to nanotechnology he has said, “As the particles get smaller and smaller, the microparticles still behave very similarly to the macroparticles. As we reduce the particles to a few hundred nanometers. Some properties of the particles are completely different than the old particles. For instance, they can pass through gaps that they were unable to before. So we try to take advantage of this in different forms.”
Dr. Singh says cannabinoid nanotechnology hasn’t been widely studied. The research is being done right now, and the results look positive. He stated, “We’re starting to see some very good quality papers coming in already about cannabis and nanotechnology and its impact on health.
