It’s thought that CBD might affect your health by attaching to receptors in the body’s endocannabinoid system—a complex biological system involved in maintaining certain aspects of your health. Emerging research shows that endocannabinoids may play a role in regulating such functions as memory, sleep, and mood, as well as metabolic processes like energy balance.
Phytocannabinoids are the herbal, natural and classical cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. The glandular structure called the trichomes is where the concentrated viscous resin of the plant is found. There are over 60 cannabinoids that have been isolated from the plant. Tetrahydracannabinol (THC), Cannabidiol (CBD) and Cannabinol (CBN) are the most prevalent ones and have also been the most studied. Cannabidiol (CBD) accounts for up to 40% of the plant’s extract. It has been widely reported that CBD offers the greatest possible benefits of any of the extracts found in the plant. CBD can also be derived from hemp. Hemp and cannabis both contain large amounts of natural CBD, but hemp is naturally low in THC; thus, making it easier for manufacturers to create high CBD-infused products with low to non-existent THC levels. Since THC is (mostly) still illegal in the United States, most CBD items we carry are derived from hemp. Each CBD product varies in the amount of CBD and THC levels found in the product. No items we carry are over the legal limit of THC levels, which is 0.3%, according to U.S. Federal Law.
La unión de un ligando cannabinoide a su receptor conlleva la activación de una proteína G citoplasmática que mayoritariamente es inhibitoria y por ello denominada Gi. Esta unión conlleva la inhibición de la actividad de la adenilato ciclasa, una enzima excitatoria implicada en diversos procesos metabólicos. Mecanismos adicionales incluyen la inactivación de canales iónicos y otros sistemas enzimáticos.

El sistema endocannabinoide se compone de endocannabinoides y sus receptores. Estos se encuentran en todas partes del cuerpo, desde el cerebro y otros órganos hasta las glándulas y las células inmunes. El sistema endocannabinoide funciona de manera diferente en diferentes partes del cuerpo, pero el objetivo final es la  homeostasis (equilibrio interno).
Sublingual CBD Oils – also known as CBD Tinctures or CBD Hemp Oil – are the most popular type of CBD products, because of their high bioavailability and rapid absorption. There are many other kinds of products as well, including CBD edibles, CBD topicals, and even CBD-infused Coffee. CBD products have gained immense popularity in health and wellness circles thanks to their natural support of our endocannabinoid system (ECS).

El cáñamo ha sido una fuente importante de alimentos, fibras y medicamentos durante miles de años en el Viejo Mundo. Los documentos más antiguos existentes que describen el uso de las semillas de cáñamo como alimentos y como medicina son procedentes de China. Hay una buena evidencia de que el cáñamo se empezó a usar como fuente de fibra y como medicamento en toda la Cuenca del Mediterráneo, desde levante (Egipto) hasta poniente (Marruecos), varios siglos antes de Cristo (AC).
Estos términos son muy parecidos a simple vista. El motivo es que los cannabinoides contenidos en el cannabis son muy similares a los que produce el cuerpo humano de forma natural. "Endo" es la abreviatura de la palabra endógeno, que significa "actuar desde dentro". Esto significa que los cannabinoides del cannabis interactúan con el sistema endocannabinoide, que ha demostrado que los humanos producimos nuestros propios cannabinoides de forma natural.
CBD does not appear to have any psychotropic ("high") effects such as those caused by ∆9-THC in marijuana, but may have anti-anxiety and anti-psychotic effects.[9] As the legal landscape and understanding about the differences in medical cannabinoids unfolds, it will be increasingly important to distinguish "medical marijuana" (with varying degrees of psychotropic effects and deficits in executive function) – from "medical CBD therapies” which would commonly present as having a reduced or non-psychoactive side-effect profile.[9][58]
I’ve been hoarding Girl Scouts Thin Mints lately (they’re especially good if you freeze them)—the chocolate is fine, but the peppermint oil is what makes them addicting enough to go through a whole sleeve without getting sick of them. I’m also trying to cut down on sugar, though, and while it would be a huge stretch to say that this peppermint oil-infused clear lip balm is a direct replacement for Girl Scout cookies, it really does have a very satisfying full-mouth taste of peppermint. The CBD oil, which soothes and facilitates healing at the same time, makes this formula an ideal balm for outdoor enthusiasts and or just those who are prone to painfully chapped lips. For those of us with long-hair-don’t-care, it’s not sticky—as a matter of fact, the formula is on the stiff side and won’t cause your hair to stick to your face, a welcome departure from many balms.
Conciliador del sueño: cuando uno está enfermo lo mejor que puede hacer es dormir. El cuerpo en reposo es capaz de reparar y reemplazar células dañadas, acelerando los procesos de curación. Ésto en ocasiones no es posible cuando el dolor es tan intenso que impide conciliar. El CBD es un gran relajante que a menudo puede inducir un sueño profundo y el descanso que el cuerpo necesita para recuperarse.
To be fair, the paucity of data about CBD’s efficacy and safety in part reflects the federal government’s irrational restrictions on cannabis research. Because cannabis is classified as a Schedule 1 drug, you need a license from the Drug Enforcement Administration to research it and, until two years ago, you could use only the cannabis grown at the University of Mississippi.
Como consejo final, recomendamos a todos los usuarios a estar prevenidos y no correr riesgos de comprar aceite en el mercado negro sin tener información sobre la variedad de cannabis y el método que se ha utilizado para su producción. También, idealmente deberíamos conocer la concentración de cannabinoides que presenta el aceite para así poder estimar de mejor manera la dosis necesaria y no pasar a estados de intoxicación.
CBD was first discovered in 1940 by Roger Adams, a prominent organic chemist at the University of Illinois. Shortly thereafter, other scientists began testing isolated cannabinoids on lab animals; notably, Walter S. Loewe ran trials on mice and rabbits with the cannabinoids THC, CBD and CBN. He found that CBD produced no observable effects in the animals’ behavior while THC caused, what he called, a “central excitant action” in rabbits. Despite science’s movement forward, scientists were completely unaware of the cannabinoids’ chemical structure, so no one could tell which specific compound resulted in which effect.

Soy fibromialgica, tengo reuma,migrañas, artrosis y osteogenesis, lo que además me produce fracturas y microfracturas múltiples y solo puedo decir que pase de los parches de morfina, antiinflamatorios, antidepresivos, etc a tomar SOLO extracto de cannabis y uso para aplicar donde noto dolor el aceite y NADA MAS.... Por fin duermo, como, salgo a la calle, voy de viaje, trabajo, hago las cosas de casa... En resumidas cuentas.... ESTOY VIVA!
