What is CBD?
CBD, short for Cannabidiol, is an active component and one of many cannabinoids found in marijuana & hemp. Unlike its close relative, Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), CBD is not psychoactive and therefore does not have any “high” effect associated with its consumption and use.
CBD, like THC and other botanical extracts, can be administered in several ways. The method of application that we specialize in at 42020 Visionaries is through topicals- typically administered for relief of pain and inflammation in localized areas. CBD has the ability to be absorbed dermally, meaning that it makes its way through the skin into the bloodstream. Another common route of application is through sublingual drops (or “tinctures”) which is a dilution of a CBD extract into a carrier oil, such as MCT oil, Hemp seed oil, or an alcohol based carrier. We have partnered up with another local company, Rhode Island Reef, to bring clients a THC Free sublingual available in two strengths. Sublingual applications are administered through a dropper, remaining under the tongue for several minutes while the active components are drawn into the body. CBD can also be administered through inhalation / vaporization, which can include smoking the flower (buds), extracts, or pens.
Why might people use, or want to use CBD? For a multitude of reasons! One of the most common uses for CBD is relief of pain and inflammation. As mentioned, this is typically administered through topical application (for localized treatment) and also through sublinguals.
Many people find that CBD also helps with relief of anxiety, mental & emotional stress, and has been shown to improve sleep patterns. Within all mammals exists an Endocannabinoid System (ECS), which has receptors to intake cannabinoids, and additionally produces endocannabinoids within our bodies. The ECS is the largest biological system of receptors in the body, and works to maintain homeostasis on various levels. The ECS communicates directly with other systems of our body, such as our nervous system, immune system, and integumentary system to deliver results. In short, your body is designed to take in cannabinoids and make use of them where it’s needed most! One's experience with CBD may vary individually, so it’s best to use trial and error to see what works best for you.
