CBD (cannabidiol) is a cannabinoid – a biologically active cannabis compound that has been proven to have significant health benefits. The cannabis plant is composed of a complex chemical mixture that includes phyto-cannabinoids, terpenoids, flavanoids, steroids and enzymes. Cannabinoids help by modulating many physiological systems in the human brain and body. There are many active cannabinoids that have been identified in cannabis and of these tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD) are usually present in the highest concentrations and have been studied the most extensively.
THC is the psycho-active component, which is used recreationally to give the “high”. CBD is non-psychoactive, meaning it does not make people feel “high or stoned” so that means daily tasks, like driving, taking care of children and working, will not be affected or put at risk by using CBD. There are no dulled senses to inhibit consumers. While this makes CBD is a poor choice for recreational users, it gives a significant advantage as a tonic, since it has minimal side effects. This makes CBD an appealing option for people looking for relief from various conditions such as inflammation, pain, anxiety, psychosis, seizures, spasms, etc — without feelings of lethargy, try Z-Blends CBD Oil.
