What is CBD
CBD (Cannabidiol) is one of several compounds called phytocannabinoids produced by the cannabis plant. CBD is the second most abundant phytocannabinoid in the cannabis plant. Unlike THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol), CBD does not produce a euphoric effect. It does not get you high. Cannabis has been used in every major civilization as medicine for the last 5,000 years. Within the last 100 years, the cannabis plant has been deemed illegal. Therefore, only recently have we been able to study the effects and medical benefits of cannabis and it’s phytocannabinoids. What we do know is that phytocannabinoids are linked to an internal system that is present in all vertebrate species. This system is called the ECS (Endocannabinoid System). Preliminary research shows that CBD has anti-seizure, antioxidant, neuroprotective, anti-inflammatory, analgesic, anti-tumor, anti-psychotics, and anti-anxiety properties.
The Endocannabinoid System
The ECS (Endocannabinoid System) receives and translates signals from phytocannabinoids using receptors located throughout the body. The ECS produces its own cannabinoids called endocannabinoids. The receptors utilized by the ECS are called CB1 and CB2. The ECS regulates functions such as pain, appetite, stress, sleep, mood, metabolisms, and immune function. The ECS's job can be simplified by saying that it is interracial to homeostasis or “the management of balance within your body.”
According to U.S. National Institutes of Health, Laboratories of Physiologic studies, 2014:
“Targeting endocannabinoid system activity may have therapeutic potential in nearly all diseases affecting humans.”
How do I use CBD? What product is right for me?
Hidden Pine Farms currently offers 3 different ways of consuming CBD and other beneficial phytocannabinoids.
If your targeted location is on or close to the skin, first try using one of our topical products. If you find that the topical application is not sufficient, you will need to introduce the CBD into your bloodstream. To accomplish this, Hidden Pine Farms has two types of products that are designed for this purpose. The fastest way to present CBD into the bloodstream is with a smokable product. By smoking CBD rich hemp flower, phytocannabinoids are immediately dispersed throughout your body giving you almost instant results. We understand that this is not for everyone, which brings us to the easiest way for you to consume your CBD. Using our infused tincture oils gives you an uncomplicated, consistent and enjoyable way to keep your body in balance. Using the marked dropper supplied with every oil makes it very simple to keep your doses accurate. You can use our oils in your favorite coffee, tea, or favorite drink, or by traditionally placing the oil underneath your tongue for 30 to 60 seconds. However, you should be aware that these oils need to be taken daily in order to be effective. If a regimen is not adhered to, the product will not have a chance to work at an optimal level.
