What is CBD?

If you are wondering why CBD products is popping up everywhere, well you're not alone.  Come to find out it’s all about this healthy natural occurring chemical compound named Cannabidiol, or (CBD) for short.

Cannabidiol is one of 113 identified Phyto cannabinoid (Phyto means plant) derived from the Cannabis Sativa plant discovered in 1940 by Dr. Roger Adams and his associates at the University of Illinois.

It accounts for up to 40% of the plant's extract. CBD is a safe and a non-addictive substance. It is the second-most dominant active chemical compound found in the plant just after Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).

Tetrahydrocannabinol or (THC) for short is the chemical compound that causes a person to feel high or buzzedThis feeling of euphoria is called psychoactive. Make no mistake about it, CBD is closely related to THC. Both CBD and THC have significant therapeutic attributes medicinally.

However, each of these amazing compounds perform differently in the brain and other body CB1 and CB2 receptors. CBD is great for people who want the health benefits of cannabis without the psychoactive effect from THC.

A little CBD goes a long way

Although a 250 mg bottle of CBD oil costs around $30, a common dosage is a mere 10 mg (give or take). That’s around 1/100 of a tablespoonful of pure CBD. At that dosage, the bottle would contain a total of 25 servings at a cost of about $1.20 a day.

Many people spend more than that amount each day on sodas or snacks. We all know those things aren’t good for us. But very few people consider a soda and a bag of chips to be expensive.

CBD, on the other hand, could greatly improve your quality of life. Moreover, as we all know, being in poor health can be exceptionally expensive. Money is money at any cost, and you don’t want to waste it. So, it’s important to determine an ideal dosage of CBD oil for your needs and not exceed that amount.

Taking more CBD than you need will unlikely produce better results.
