Plants, from time immemorial, have been utilized for one therapeutic purpose or the other. This is because they contain active chemicals that interact with your body's cells to bring about one or more positive effects that can boost health, induce cellular regeneration, reduce pain and inflammation and more! These plant-based chemicals like Curcumin (Turmeric), Manool (Sage), Eugenol (Cloves), alkaloids, terpenes, flavonoids and recently CBD (cannabidiol), THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol), have been incorporated into natural supplements like balms, tinctures, capsules, coffee, herbal tea and more!
The use of CBD as a natural supplement for the maintenance of a healthy lifestyle is gaining grounds daily. CBD is extracted from the cannabis plant, unlike THC, CBD can contain no to very minimal amounts of the cannabis psychoactive agent meaning you could utilize the cannabis plants health benefits without getting "high". CBD has been put to several uses for the common good of man, and its ability to elicit a wide range of effects without loss of function and affordability makes it available for public use.
CBD products like tinctures, edibles (cookies, gum, and coffee), breathable, capsules and topical oils have been widely utilized for a vast array of health benefits including serving as anxiolytic, anti-inflammatory, anticancer, anti-tumor, antidepressant, antioxidant and antimicrobial agents. This is possible due to its interaction with the CB1 and CB2 receptors of the endocannabinoid system, which controls cognitive responses in the body.
Although the legality of using CBD in some regions of the world is still under strict observation, adequate care must be taken to note that CBD plays a significant role in healthy living.
