So… you’ve heard about CBD from enough of your friends now and you’ve decided “what the heck? why not see if this magical little plant can help me out?”
Since there’s an overwhelming amount of info you can find out here surfing the internet, we decided to put together this quick and clean overview to one method of introducing these beneficial botanicals to your body, CBD vape oil. Of course there are edibles, and gel caps, tinctures, gummy bears and all kinds of ways to enjoy the benefits of CBD but we’ll tell you about those another day.
One of the reasons people choose CBD vape over other methods is because breathing in vaporized CBD oil is known to be the fastest way to experience the effects. Compounds are absorbed directly from the lungs into the bloodstream.
Before diving into what CBD is and how vaping CBD oil connects with your mind, body, and even the world, we must first highlight the science. Don’t let that term scare you! It will surprise you as to how easy it is to understand, and you’ll soon be teaching your friends the real deal.
Let’s first point out that there are over a hundred cannabinoid compounds found in the cannabis plant, and CBD (cannabidiol) is one of them. THC, found in marijuana, is the type that gets you ‘high.’ Oh, you know, the one that you catch whiffs of while walking the streets of California. Our CBD oil, on the contrary, is non-psychoactive (you cannot get high from it!) CBD, including CBD vape works with our very own endocannabinoid systems (ECS), which is inside of us.
All of us, including you, your friends, family, strangers, have an endocannabinoid system – the real VP inside of your body making sure everything is running smoothly and invites balance to the processes of the body. When endocannabinoids replenish, your body has a better chance of finding homeostasis and restoring well-being. By having better well-being, you’ll be walking down the streets as a natural boss in no time.
Our bodies create cannabinoids but refer to endocannabinoids. “Endo” means “internal or within,” and an endocannabinoid is a molecule made by your body. Plants produce cannabinoids (in our case hemp-derived CBD) and refer to as phytocannabinoids. “Phyto” means “of a plant or relating to plants,” and a phytocannabinoid is a molecule synthesized by plants. Yes, friends, our bodies have similar processes like plants!
The reason we broke that down is so that later, you will be the master understanding other articles we will publish on topics like the Endocannabinoid receptors, CB1 & CB2 receptors, 2-arachidonoylglycerol (2-AG), anandamide (AEA), bioavailability, cannabichromene (CBC), Clinical Endocannabinoid Deficiency (CECD), Terpenes and more! Soon you’ll be brushing your shoulders off knowing the science of CBD.
