CBD interacts with the body’s endocannabinoid system

Humans have an endocannabinoid system – a vast network of receptors and cannabis-like chemicals (endocannabinoids) that regulates vital functions such as sleep, appetite, mood, memory, inflammation and reproduction.

Cannabinoid receptors are the binding locations for compounds like CBD and are found throughout the body. It used to be thought that CBD acts on these CB2 receptors, but it appears now that CBD does not act on either receptor directly. Instead, it seems to influence the body to use more of its own cannabinoids.

The anti-inflammatory properties of CBD can also control the other effects of acne because the skin around the zit is intensely inflamed. Pimples are effectively infections, and it is best to treat them as such. CBD can act as an antibacterial agent, decreasing the likelihood of further acne in the future.

One study in the British Journal of Pharmacology found that phytocannabinoids, particularly CBD and cannabigerol (CBG), can control cell proliferation and differentiation, indicating they can be used in novel treatments for skin diseases like allergies. Anecdotally, CBD oil works on warts, moles, and even HPV outbreaks because it can cause cell death in these abnormally growing cell groups, but clinical research in this area is lacking.

Atopic dermatitis (eczema) has been shown to improve after treatment with hemp oil. Although the exact cause of atopic dermatitis is unknown, it is suspected to be a type of allergic response, with the corresponding rash associated with inflammation of the skin.

Terpenes are plant essential oils found in all plants, flowers, and trees. Cannabis plants are thought to contain 200 individual Terpenes. The volatile, aromatic molecules of Terpenes evaporate easily and are readily detectable by their smell. They are responsible for the distinctive fragrance of smoked marijuana, for instance. Aromatherapists and holistic health practitioners have long recognised their pharmacological significance, and their many roles and benefits are now being more widely acknowledged in mainstream medicine.

Therapeutic Terpenes

Terpenes play a major role in the therapeutic effects of cannabis-derived substances.  This is partly because they work in synergy with the primary Phytocannabinoids (the THC and CBD in cannabis plants). They also have their own unique therapeutic benefits. For example, they enhance the anti-inflammatory properties of CBD.

Terpenes in Leafy Greens

In 2008, Swiss scientist Jürg Gertsch documented the effects of a specific Terpine present in leafy, green vegetables that makes them so healthy to eat. He found that Terpenoids and Cannabinoids both increase blood flow, enhance cortical activity, and kill respiratory pathogens, including the potential killer, antibiotic-resistant bug, MRSA.

He reports that cannabinoid-terpenoid interactions:

“Could produce synergy with respect to treatment for problems as varied as pain, inflammation, depression, anxiety, addiction, epilepsy, cancer, fungal and bacterial infections.”

Other positive benefits uncovered by medical researchers include an anti-convulsant effect; analgesic and fever-reducing effects; and treatment for insomnia.

Liminine

Liminine, a type of Terpene, neutralises stomach acids and can help with reflux and heartburn; helps dissolve cholesterol gallstones and is a mood-enhancer. More excitingly, it is also used in co-therapy for some cancers with strong indications of success.

Pinene

Pinene – another type of Terpene, is a broncho-dilator particularly beneficial to asthmatics and it also aids memory recall.

“Could produce synergy with respect to treatment for problems as varied as pain, inflammation, depression, anxiety, addiction, epilepsy, cancer, fungal and bacterial infections.”

CBD, or Cannabidiol as it is also known, is the second most common chemical compound found in the Industrial Hemp plant. Overall, there are more than 85 other unique compounds found in this amazing medicinal plant. The two most prominent of these compounds are CBD and THC (the latter is responsible for the psycho-active effects of cannabis) and are called cannabinoids or, more specifically, Phytocannabinoids. 

CBD and THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), both derived from the Cannabis Sativa plant species.

Phytocannabinoids – Botanical Wonders

These Phytocannabinoids are hugely important in botanical medicine – naturally occurring medicines derived from plants, including cannabis plants.  This type of complimentary medicine is becoming increasingly mainstream as people seek more natural solutions to health and wellbeing. And, increasingly, as more becomes known about the beneficial effects of these complex compounds.

Phytocannabinoids occur naturally in the cannabis plant and there are more than 85 that have been recognised to date. Some would put that figure at over 100, such is the pace of discovery and development.

Cannabis Strains

There are multiple strains of this plant, one of the most common strains being Industrial Hemp, the other Marijuana. Though different plants, they come from the same family. Industrial Hemp naturally produces higher levels of Cannabidiols (CBD) and lower levels of the psycho-active Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) which provides the cannabis ‘high’. The primary source of most CBD on the market today is from the agricultural hemp plant that has been legalized for cultivation in the USA and the EU.

Meanwhile, Marijuana plants – perhaps best known for their recreational appeal, – are judged to be illegal in some states and countries because they produce high levels of THC and lower levels of CBD. 

CBD – The Benefits of CBD

CBD is non-psycho-active which means that it will not give the user a high of the recreational type – though it may well improve their wellbeing to produce another kind of high. Because of this trait, and because of it many beneficial properties, CBD appears more frequently than THC in dietary and natural supplements as well as in skin and hair preparations.  It is this CBD which forms the Dr Buddi CBD products which are named synonymously as hemp extract.

CBD is abbreviated for Cannabidiol oil which is derived from the hemp plant. CBD oil is legal in most countries due to the low content of THC (which is non-psychoactive) along with the lowest content of THC, i.e., around 0.02%.

If the oil is derived from the marijuana plant, it comprises of THC or tetrahydrocannabinol (Dr Buddi Products have close to zero THC and the CBD is extracted from specially bred hemp plants which contain no psychoactive substances) which is psychoactive and results in euphoric or high feelings.

It is gaining popularity regarding its benefits to the body and serves as a natural alternative to pharmaceutical drugs for the treatment of diseases such as psoriasis, cancer, epilepsy, psychosis, high blood sugar levels, muscle spasms, depression and many others.

CBD Oil aids in balancing the hormones, help in stress reduction, reduce the inflammation, allows you to sleep well and has a positive impact on the metabolism of the body.

CBD Oil can be consumed in various ways which include oral ingestion, edibles, tinctures, topical like salves, balms, chews, vaping and many others.

So, before we jump onto the topic that whether you can use the oil in a vape? What is vaping?

What is vaping CBD?

Vaping is defined as the act during which the person inhales the vapour produced from the electronic cigarette or the vapouriser.

The gas is formed from the material which includes the concentrate, e-liquid or the dry herb or the use of CBD vape juices or e-liquids.

Vaping has emerged as a convenient and preferred method for consuming the CBD among the health-conscious individuals. Vapourisers are devices which offer the individuals with a clean process of enjoying the CBD.

It utilises the conduction or convection method for heating the waxes, dry herb and botanical materials till the vaporisation point which is the temperature cooler than the combustion point.

The vaporising procedure results in the formation of clean and pure vapours rather than the harmful smoke which can be safely inhaled and offer you with the beneficial effects.

The vapeable CBD is available in the form of oil which includes the organic hemp Oil. It serves as a thinning agent that allows the mixture to form the wick easily.

CBD vaping serves as a perfect natural alternative to smoking in our everyday lives because of multiple reasons which include the following:

  • Stronger, faster and better.
  • Works efficiently.
  • Helps in relieving anxiety and daytime stress.
  • Better than smoking as vaping does not result in bronchitis or inflammation of the lungs.
  • Offers an individual with regular and small dosage.
  • 100% legal without any medical recommendations.
  • Discretion-you can easily hide it and use it in public places with the mild odour and easy access.
