A lot of companies advertise medicinal hemp as a wellness product of the future and based on everything we’ve seen so far, this might be an accurate statement! While there are still a lot of questions regarding CBD and the immune system, we are slowly starting to uncover all the secrets of this magnificent substance.
You might find it interesting to learn that most people don’t use cannabidiol for a specific medical condition. Instead, they use it to improve the overall state of their immunity and regulate certain metabolic processes.
If we consider the fact that the products such as full-spectrum CBD oil can be used on a daily basis, you quickly realize that cannabidiol might become as common as honey or almond milk.
In today’s post, we will focus on CBD and the immune system. Enjoy!
What is CBD?
CBD or cannabidiol is one of the numerous cannabinoid substances that can have a positive impact on our bodies.
This substance is usually extracted from the hemp plant, but you can also get it from cannabis. CBD is extracted in the form of oil via the CO2 extraction method, ensuring the highest purity of the product.
Although cannabidiol is the highlight of medicinal hemp products, most of them have other ingredients as well. For example, they might have chemical compounds such as THC, CBG, CBN, various terpenes, and flavonoids.
By introducing all these substances together at the same time, you can achieve an “entourage effect.” In other words, the synergy of these chemical compounds should provide even greater benefits than if you were to use them individually.
When extracting CBD oil, most companies prefer relying on hemp instead of cannabis. One of the reasons being is because hemp has a very low THC content (psychedelic substance).
So, when using these items, you shouldn’t worry about getting high. In order to ensure the safety of the consumers, the US government has set up a legal limit of 0.3% THC content within a CBD product. With this quantity, you won’t be able to experience psychedelic side effects barring extreme misuse.
How does CBD work on the immune system?
In order to understand CBD’s impact on immunity, we first need to consider how it works within our bodies.
One prevalent theory involves cannabinoids and the endocannabinoid system. The endocannabinoid system is a major part of the human body. It was only discovered in 1990, which is why we knew very little about internal hemp mechanisms prior to that and were reluctant to use it as a wellness substance.
However, if you look throughout history, you will quickly realize that cannabis was used in Ancient Egypt and by some other ancient civilizations.
Anyway, as our knowledge of the endocannabinoid system increased, we slowly started learning about its potential interactions with cannabinoids. This system is spread throughout our bodies, and it is able to receive stimuli through its receptors.
It is still in the process of preliminary research, so our knowledge is based on limited data. However, based on that data, the endocannabinoid system may be important for regulating various internal functions such as sleep, memory, fertility, appetite, stress, immunity, etc.
Based on studies such as this, it seems that different cannabinoids have a different impact on receptors. While some of them will be able to bind to them, the other cannabinoids would not.
This is one of the reasons why you should use all cannabinoids simultaneously, and while full-spectrum CBD oil should provide much better results than some other cannabidiol products.
How does CBD help the immune system?
At this point, we still don’t have enough medical data to make any medical claims. Most of our data is based on user reviews and limited studies.
However, there are some good indications that CBD might be able to help you with things such as:
- Minor soreness and physical discomfort
- Dry skin and surface skin aging
- Overall natural harmony
In other words, you won’t be able to use medicinal marijuana to treat specific conditions.
Furthermore, the only drug that is based on hemp is Epidiolex, which is used to treat certain types of seizures. But, if you need a natural, holistic solution that would improve the overall quality of your life, we suggest that you try full-spectrum CBD oil.
What is the ideal dosage?
CBD dosage will vary on numerous factors such as age, weight, sex, condition, tolerance, etc.
However, the general rule is to start with a smaller quantity. Given that cannabidiol is a wellness product, and it should be used over a prolonged period of time, there is no problem if you start with a smaller dose. We recommend that you start with one-quarter of a milliliter for the CLOUD9 and Delta 8, and half to a full milliliter for the other Nature’s Stash products. One Milliliter is the recommended daily dose for products other than Cloud 9 and Delta 8.. Start slow and add as needed.
Before that, make sure to properly shake the bottle. CBD oil can be taken either in the morning, evening, or anytime through out the day.
However, we suggest that you try it in the evening, given that it has sedative properties. Keep in mind that doesn’t mean you will instantly fall asleep after using it. The product will not put you to sleep; it will just help you relax.
You should feel the first improvement after a couple of weeks. If there is no change, you can slowly ramp up the dosage. If you’re using the product to improve your immune system, you don’t have to feel an instantaneous effect.
So, even if you don’t feel any change, don’t take several doses at once.
