What is CBD oil?

CBD stands for Cannabidiol. It is the most dominant of 80 different cannabinoids in the hemp plant. Plant-derived CBD is referred to as a phytocannabinoid and possesses similar properties as animal produced endocannabinoids. It has shown significant human health benefits in numerous clinical trails.

What does CBD oil do?

Once CBD was isolated in the 1940s, it was discovered that there are specific cannabinoid receptors on both animal and human cells. This system of receptors is called the endocannabinoid system. In the 1990s, two major receptors were identified: CB1 and CB2. CBD interacts to a greater degree on the CB2 receptors that are located on immune cells. This interaction signals molecular pathways of the immune system exerting direct anti-oxidant effects.

What are the positive effects of taking CBD oil?

CBD has been studied and found in both in vivo and in vitro studies to exert anti-inflammatory, analgesic, anti-nausea, anti-emetic, anti-psychotic, anti-ischemic, anxiolytic and anti-epileptic, nuero-protective, and anti-cancer actions that may offer significant human health benefits.

At Canvas, we seek to facilitate hemp product education for first-time customers, as well as enhance existing patrons’ knowledge of the endocannabinoid system. Through alternative healing empowerment, we strive to share the gentle wonders of herbal remedies.

Research shows that our nervous system contains cannabinoid receptors involved in many physiologic processes related to mood, memory, and pain. CB1 and CB2 receptors are found in in the brain, nerve cells throughout the body, lungs, liver, kidneys, and immune system. These receptors bind with endocannabinoids (produced in the body) or with phytocannabinoids (found in cannabis plants).

Both marijuana and hemp come from the plant species Cannabis sativa. Our CBD oil is derived from industrial hemp and is legal in all 50 states, because it contains less than 0.3% THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol is the principal psychoactive component of cannabis). Any cannabis plant containing more that 0.3% THC is considered marijuana.

Research

In 2015, the NIDA (National Institute on Drug Abuse) published an article that indicates use of cbd oil for;

 

  • Anti-seizure effects
  • Neuroprotective and anti-inflammatory effects
