CBD Oil will Not get you high
CBD does not cause the feeling of being ‘high’ that is often associated with cannabis. The ‘high’ is caused by THC. THC binds tightly with CB1 and CB2 nerve receptors in the brain and throughout the body. CBD does not bind the receptors and instead causes its therapeutic actions through more indirect means.
Because CBD doesn’t make you feel intoxicated, it is a great option for workers, parents, children and for any one in their every day life.

Although there are several ways to extract CBD from the Hemp plant, the two that are most common are Ethanol extraction and CO2 extraction. Both have advantages and disadvantages and both are capable of producing a first-rate product, but its important to know the difference.
When extracting CBD oil from Hemp using Ethanol extraction, the first thing you should do is heat the plant material to achieve something called Decarboxylation (That’s the removal of carbon atoms from the carbon chain.)
That then leaves you with a fine, green powder that is subsequently soaked in a solvent, which in this case is Ethanol. After a while, the solution is filtered, the liquid separates from the plant matter and eventually, the Ethanol evaporates.
One of the arguments in favour of Ethanol extraction is that it maintains the chemical ratios that occur naturally in Hemp plants. So, you g...

What are Endocannabinoids?
Your body creates chemicals called Endocannabinoids that are part of your Endocannabinoid system. They help regulate your body. These chemicals are elevated when you consume cannabis products like CBD hemp oil and these chemicals are also present in breast milk.
There are two main endocannabinoids that our bodies make and they mainly bind to a particular cannabinoid receptor. The way that they work is through a process called retrograde signalling where they travel backward through the synapse to the brain cell sending messages. The endocannabinoid binds to a cannabinoid receptor sending a message helps control the activity in the brain.
Anandamide is the cannabinoid that mainly binds to the CB1 cannabinoid receptor that is located mostly in the brain. This interaction helps t...
Have you fallen into a rut of sadness where nothing you do brings you joy? You might not have other symptoms of depression, but for some reason nothing is satisfying. You may have developed melancholic depression, and CBD oil may be able to help.

The rash that comes with Shingles can cause all sorts of trouble causing, pain, redness and itchiness. But can CBD help ask Shingles is a skin rash?
What is Shingles?
Shingles is a viral infection that causes a painful rash. Although shingles can occur anywhere on your body, it most often appears as a single stripe of blisters that wraps around either the left or the right side of your torso.
Shingles is caused by the varicella-zoster virus — the same virus that causes chickenpox. After you've had chickenpox, the virus lies inactive in nerve tissue near your spinal cord and brain. Years later, the virus may reactivate as shingles.
While it isn't a life-threatening condition, sh...
