Cannabidiol (CBD) is a naturally occurring chemical found in the cannabis plant’s resinous flower. Cannabinoids such as THC and CBD interact with the human body through the ECS (endocannabinoid system). The ECS regulates body processes such as sleep, the immune system and mood. In contrast to THC, which provides a recognizable “high”, CBD has no psychoactive effects. This has made it a highly appealing and legal option for anyone seeking to include it in their lifestyle and achieve a healthy balance.

Reasons To Start Taking CBD

It has been only within the past 30 years that the general significance of the ECS to human health has been uncovered. We know that our bodies produce distinct endocannabinoids from the fats in cell membranes. These cannabinoids interact with body-wide receptors to control a variety of bodily activities. As with any other factor, bad lifestyle choices, food, aging, stress, and injury can all impede the body’s capacity to manage endocannabinoid levels. CBD is a natural, plant-based supplement that can help balance the endocannabinoid system by “topping off” the endocannabinoid levels.

How Does CBD Absorb Into the Body?

The membrane behind the tongue is similar to a passageway for oils into circulation. Putting a few drops of CBD oil on your tongue will enter your bloodstream without passing through your liver or digestive system. This prevents enzymes from degrading the CBD molecules as they would if consumed.

This fast absorption causes the effects of oils to be immediate after intake. However, this high absorption rate reduces the duration of entering the bloodstream. As a result, various concentrations of CBD oil (e.g. 500 mg, 1000 mg or 2000 mg) can have varied effects.

Unlike CBD oil, capsules are consumed and are thus absorbed differently by the body. Whereas oil sprays and droppers avoid the digestive system, capsules enter it directly. CBD compounds enter the stomach before being transported to the liver for metabolizing. This process decreases the concentration of CBD compounds – yet enough CBD remains at an effective concentration for entering the circulation. Capsule absorption can be enhanced by consuming them with natural fatty foods such as dairy, avocado, nuts and seeds.

What are the repercussions of such absorption? Capsules will not have the same instant effects as CBD oil, and the overall benefits may be less intense (but longer-lasting). It’s a gradual and steady manner of ingesting CBD, and it’s easy to integrate with other supplements.

How CBD Makes You Feel

How CBD Makes You FeelMany people who have used CBD believe that it’s an excellent natural choice for keeping an active lifestyle. The effects you experience rely on factors such as dosage, potency, the individual’s size and body mass, and the kind of substance. This means that individuals can have diverse experiences.

Using modern extraction techniques, we can decrease the THC content of CBD obtained from hemp to below the legally mandated level of 0.2%. This small concentration of THC does not affect the body or mind.
