CBD is extracted from hemp plants which have been bred to contain high levels of CBD content instead of THC. CBD is processed from the mature hemp plant into an oil through a few different methods. CBD acts on the CB1 and CB2 receptors in our bodies endocannabinoid system. This regulates our hormones and endocrine system. One of the endocrine system's functions is to regulate stress in the body. This is how CBD can reduce stress and promote wellness.
Most people are deficient in their bodies naturally produced endocannabinoids, or the indigenous cannabinoids that our endocannibinoid system produces. BPA in plastics and water bottles, Smog and pollution in the air, and preservatives or pesticides in food all reduce the function of the endocannibinoid system, causing a deficiency. CBD actually acts on the CB1 and CB2 receptors to improve one's endocannibinoid system's ability to produce endocannabinoids. Instead of treating symptoms from illness, CBD helps the body's natural systems on a molecular level to improve a person's over-all health, or to treat specific medical conditions. Medical doctors are using CBD oil to treat many conditions like insomnia, anxiety, pain, seizures, Parkinson's, Crohn's, Alzheimer's, ALS, Multiple Sclerosis, joint pain, inflammation, Autism and more.
Various CBD studies and anecdotal evidence show a potential for CBD to improve focus. Anxiety can often make it hard to focus. CBD can help reduce anxiety, thus making it easier to focus.
CBD has been shown to increase serotonin levels in the brain.This is similar to how an SSRI (selective serotonin re-uptake inhibitor) works. Serotonin levels have a direct correlation on mood. This helps quiet the chatter in the mind and improves focus. Since CBD promotes our bodies own ability to regulate stress, it is a much better option than other drugs or alcohol that only mask the symptoms.
CBD tinctures work best for this purpose since it lasts longer than CBD vapor inhaled orally. CBD tinctures are usually created by taking CBD concentrate and diluting it with a carrier oil such as MCT oil so that the CBD is in a manageable form for consumption and dosing.
