What is CBD?


CBD Oil (Cannabidiol Oil) is pushing harder and harder on the market today, although there are still prejudices about it. After all, Cannabidiol is a substance that is extracted from the hemp plant and quickly associated with an intoxicating effect.

Luckily, that is not the case.

CBD Oil causes no psychoactive effect, so it is unlikely to be intoxicated during its use. It is, therefore, oil, which is absolutely legally available. Although Cannabidiol is not approved as a medicinal product, it nevertheless has many healing properties.

Below we are going to learn more about CBD Oil and its benefits:

Cannabidiol (CBD) is found mainly in hemp. While THC causes intoxication, CBD has no psychoactive effects!


Many people are still convinced that hemp is equivalent to marijuana. This is not so, as there are different types of hemp which are also specially bred and grown and are thus used for different purposes.

For example,

CBD is also considered pain-relieving. So it stimulates the vanilloid receptors of type 1 and type 2. On nerve endings, which are pain receptors, the vanilloid receptor 1 is usually found. If these receptors are now stimulated by CBD, an analgesic effect occurs.

In animal experiments on mice, it has also been found that CBD can reduce inflammatory and neuropathic pain. Thus, mice do not have glycine receptors, which are primarily in nerve cells in humans. The mice had no analgesic effect, which is why it can be assumed that this receptor has an effect on the suppression of chronic pain stimuli. If the glycine receptor is now activated by CBD, there is reduced excitability of the nerve cells and, as a result, a reduction in pain.

Cannabidiol oil can also be helpful in conditions such as asthma and allergies. It stimulates the immune system and also has an anti-inflammatory effect.
