It’s All About the ECS

CBD, as you may know, stands for Cannabidiol, which is a component of a number of cannabis plants, hemp being one cannabis plant in particular.  Not to be confused with THC – which is that part of the cannabis plant that is intoxicating, largely comes from the marijuana form of cannabis, and has some health benefits – CBD is non-intoxicating and is found in higher concentrations in hemp (though it is also a component of marijuana).

What makes CBD work on our bodies is the way in which it interacts with our endogenous cannabinoid system, often called the endocannabinoid system (ECS).  The ECS is actually one of the most important physiological systems for human health.  Endocannabinoids and their receptors are found throughout the body, including the brain, organs, and connective tissues.  The ECS has been described as a literal “bridge between body and mind.”  It is a system that connects “brain activity and states of physical health and disease.”

Thus, when CBD oil is consumed, it interacts with the ECS receptors.  When the ECS is activated, it brings a sense of calm and balance.  To be sure, our bodies produce their own endocannabinoids.  Yet, getting them from outside sources – like CBD oil – is able to give your system a real extra charge.  Moreover, CBD can be instrumental in slowing down the breakdown of endocannabinoids.  That means that the positive effects, like the feeling of calm and balance, will remain with you for a longer period of time.  

How Can I Use CBD Oil for Maximum Effect?

CBD oil is available in many different forms, including liquid, capsules, gummies, pastes, creams, sprays, and salves for e-cigarettes.  That means that you have many options when it comes to the way in which you want to ingest CBD oil.  While many people take it orally, it can have the same effect when put on your skin.  The only difference is the time it takes for the CBD to begin to take effect.

It is important to find what form and method of CBD oil works best for you, based on factors including your age, diet, and level of physical activity.   

With regard to the amount of CBD oil you should take, you should start slow.  CBD oil is complex and has different effects on different people.  Accordingly, you should take low CBD doses to begin, and observe your results before trying an increased amount.  

Also, it is recommended that you take little doses at intervals during the day, rather than take one large dose all at once.  Again, personal preference is very important here.  You need to do what brings the results that are most healthful for you.  If you find that you are experiencing certain side effects, like dizziness or a slight headache, that may mean that you are taking a dose that is slightly too high for you. Be sure to regulate your dosage as necessary.
