MindBodyGreen has recently published a few articles describing what CBD has been shown to do, as well as personal stories from people using CBD. This first article explains certain studies of how CBD has been shown to help people.
This study explains why CBD is commonly used for anxiety and insomnia. In short, CBD has been shown to act on serotonin receptors 5HT1A, regulating GABA and glutamate. GABA is involved with anxiety, and glutamate is an excitatory neurotransmitter. The way it does this is by acting on the endocannabinoid system (ECS), which corresponds with the central nervous system and various neurotransmitters.
As with most supplements, the article above points out that every person’s body is different. Some may notice effects of CBD immediately, while it may take others a week, two weeks, or a month – and some may not notice any difference at all. It states, “Each person is different and will have a unique response to any new botanical supplement. It is important for people to be objective in observing the effects in order to find the right individual dose and whether CBD can be helpful.” It continues to say, “There are many factors to consider, such as where and how the plant was grown, how the product was processed and manufactured, and the route of administration used.”
Can you overdose on CBD? The science of this is discussed in depth in this article. “You cannot take enough CBD to kill yourself or damage organs. This is not practically possible. First, let’s discuss the LD-50 rating of cannabis, which is 1-20,000-40,000. This is the ratio between a therapeutic and lethal dose. Comparatively, the LD-50 for aspirin is 1:20. Two aspirin will take away a headache, 40 aspirin will kill 50 percent of the people who take that many.” The article does note that someone who takes “too much” may experience sedation, appetite loss, or diarrhea.
Interestingly, a second article by Mind Body Green references how That’s Natural’s specific products has benefitted one of their writers. What does she use it for? Achy feet, strain from old injuries, sunburns, sore muscles, and even period pain. As Andrea says, “I am a total convert – I can’t stop recommending the product to friends.”
That’s Natural products contain cannabinoids and terpenes which makes them full spectrum. Each one of us has an endocannabinoid system, which is fueled by these cannabinoids and terpenes. The combination of these compounds help to provide what is known as the entourage effect.
