What Is CBD Oil?
If you are aware of the benefits of CBD, you are welcome to skip this part and jump directly on the recipes. But, if you are here for the first time, we would suggest you read further.
CBD or Cannabidiol is one of the common cannabinoids found in the cannabis-based hemp plant. CBD is completely non-psychoactive which means it will not make you high at all. This is because the hemp plant contains the least percentage of THC (high inducing cannabinoid) which is not enough to get you high.
A number of researches and studies have been done since the last few years which explain the therapeutic and medical applications of CBD in treating a variety of health issues.
CBD is well known for its anxiolytic, analgesic, anti-inflammatory, anticonvulsant, antibacterial properties and much more.
Researchers say that there are Endocannabinoid Systems present in our body. This system helps our body in maintaining homeostasis by regulating various body functions such as pain, sleep, appetite, mood, and immune system. CBD, when consumed, interacts with the receptors present in our Endocannabinoid System and provides relief in various acute as well as chronic health issues.
These health issues include:
1. Acute and Chronic Pain
2. Anxiety and Depression
3. Sleep Issues
5. Epileptic Seizures
7. Nausea and Vomiting
9. Cardiovascular diseases
10. Brain-Related disorders
11. Bacterial Infections
12. Bone Related Problems
13. Skin Problems such as Acne, Psoriasis, Eczema and more.
Now when you are aware of CBD and its amazing benefits in relieving a number of health issues, let us move to our CBD infused popsicles recipes.
