The Medicinal Benefits of CBD
Cannabidiol is one of the most exciting cannabinoids that we are aware of today, and its use is growing worldwide. Cannabinoids are the natural compounds found in cannabis that are responsible for the myriad of effects that cannabis provides to users. Also known as CBD, cannabidiol is transforming from a little-known cannabinoid long shunned by the cannabis community, to a potential breakthrough nutritional component and wellness supplement that could benefit everyone.
Cannabidiol & Pain Relief
CBD products are the most popular cannabis items on the market these days. Reva is proud to offer many different varieties of CBD. We offer these because we know that often times customers are interested in achieving the relaxation and pain-relieving elements of cannabis, but not the “high” part of it. There is no or minimal THC in the products we offer.
Where Does CBD Come From?
The least processed form of the cannabis plant is hemp. Hemp contains most of the CBD that people use medicinally. Hemp and marijuana come from the same plant, Cannabis sativa, but the two are very different. Over the years, marijuana farmers have selectively bred their plants to contain high levels of THC and other compounds that interested them, often because the compounds produced a smell or had another effect on the plant’s flowers.
A Naturally-Sourced Pain Reliever
CB1 receptors are present throughout the body, but many are in the brain. The CB1 receptors in the brain deal with coordination and movement, pain, emotions, and mood, thinking, appetite, and memories, and other functions. THC attaches to these receptors. Instead, it seems to direct the body to use more of its own cannabinoids. CBD may benefit a person’s health in a variety of ways, such as prescription or over-the-counter drugs.
