Cannabidiol

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a naturally occurring cannabinoid constituent of the Hemp Plant. It was discovered in 1940 and initially thought not to have pharmaceutical or therapeutic properties.

It is one of at least 80 cannabinoids identified in hemp plants, accounting for up to 40% of the plant’s extract. As of 2018 in the United States, the Food and Drug Agency has approved one pharmaceutical prescription drug called Epidiolex for medical uses has been limited to two rare forms of childhood.

Tru Medicinals products allow you to either inhale, apply, or ingest either by using our CBD Water Enhancer or OIls. CBD or cannabidiol is the main active compound in hemp, and unlike THC, it is not psychoactive, so it doesn’t make people high. As you know, inside the human body there’s the endocannabinoid system, with receptors spread throughout the brain and body.

Think of cannabinoids as keys that unlock cannabinoid receptors. In order for the cannabinoid receptors to work as intended CBD needs to be either smoked or ingested. That causes our bodies to react and unlocks the production of many key proteins in the body.

How does it work?

Cannabidiol has antipsychotic effects. The exact cause for these effects is not clear. But cannabidiol seems to prevent the breakdown of a chemical in the brain that affects pain, mood, and mental function. Preventing the breakdown of this chemical and increasing its levels in the blood seems to reduce psychotic symptoms associated with conditions such as schizophrenia. Cannabidiol might also block some of the psychoactive effects of delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Also, cannabidiol seems to reduce pain and anxiety.
