CBD - quick introduction
What is CBD?CBD is a cannabis-derived compound that has been shown to have therapeutic potential for a range of conditions. Contrary to THC, it does not have any psychoactive properties.
CBD is known to have many health benefits and is getting more and more popular among people conscious about optimising their performance. It has been shown to reduce inflammation, reduce pain, and help with sleep.
CBD is generally not considered to be dangerous, but you should consult your doctor in case of any doubts or experiencing any adverse effect after starting using CBD.
How does CBD help you sleep better?The most common way CBD helps to improve sleep is through its ability to reduce anxiety.
The anxiety that many people experience when they are feeling stressed out is what causes them to sleep poorly. CBD interacts with the receptors, naturally present in our body to reduce the anxiety and help you think more clearly.
Can CBD reduce inflammation?Inflammation is the body's response to heat production. It has desirable effects if triggered occasionally, for example, when your organism is fighting disease. Still, when that response is triggered continuously, over time, it can damage the body instead of healing it. That's what happens in autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis or skin problems like acne.
Research literature shows that cannabinoids, including CBD, could potentially be very effective anti-inflammatory agents bringing our bodies to more balanced states and prevent undesirable side-effects.
