Cannabidiol or CBD is one of the major components of cannabis. CBD products are made from industrial hemp and come in a variety of forms. Although hemp and cannabis are the same species of plant, CBD products sold by Geovana are THC free. Like CBD, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is another cannabinoid found in cannabis. It is also the cannabinoid that is responsible for most of the psychoactive effects associated with cannabis use. Selling THC free products means that our products are safe to use at any time, without the psychoactive effect usually associated with high THC cannabis products.
The human body has an endocannabinoid system (ECS) that receives and translates signals from cannabinoids. It produces some cannabinoids of its own, which are called endocannabinoids. The ECS helps to regulate functions such as sleep, immune-system responses, and pain. For more information read out blog post “What Is The Endocannabinoid System And How Does It Work?”.
CBD oils and products have been traditionally used for thousands of years to treat various types of pain. The medical community have only recently begun to study it again. From research, we have found that CBD can be used to treat a variety of health concerns like:
- Joint Pain
- Multiple sclerosis
- Menstrual cramps
There is evidence that CBD Oil also has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects which can help with arteritis. A study was conducted to see if CBD could help people with arthritis manage their pain. Researchers applied a topical gel containing CBD for 4 days. The researchers noticed a significant drop in inflammation and signs of pain, without additional side effects.
Although research is still being conducted, studies show that CBD interacts with both your immune system and your brain receptors. These receptors receive chemical signals from stimuli and help the rest of your cells respond to those signals. When your receptors react with CBD, they form anti-inflammatory effects that reduce pain. Because CBD interacts with the receptors in your brain, it improves your pain management system. You can continuously take CBD oil for your chronic pain and not build up a tolerance for it. So this means, CBD oil provides a long-term option for a long-term problem. You don’t have to keep increasing the amount of your dose or search around for new medications that might work better.
There’s a difference between CBD cannabinoids and THC cannabinoids. CBD doesn’t interact with the same brain receptors as THC, so taking it won’t give you any kind of “high.” Rather, the CBD cannabinoids give your body a way to use their own endocannabinoids better. If you’re struggling with chronic pain, CBD oil is a good option for you. It is easy to use, rarely involves any negative side effects, and is a lot less expensive than other prescription medications.
CBD, and especially broad-spectrum hemp derived CBD oil as found in the Geovana CBD products can be an extremely effective and gentle way to treat pain. Because Geovana’s CBD products are specifically formulated for women, it is safe for daily use to help manage the aches and pain associated with PMS and menopause, and other women’s health issues, without the dangers that comes with OCT drugs or prescribed pharmaceutical medications.
