What is CBD?

Despite the consistent element of taboo attached to the hemp industry, CBD products are strongly on the rise. Public opinions are steadily starting to sway towards the support of the industry, as people are looking for more natural remedies.

But there is still some unclarity on the concept of CBD and how it can have a positive effect on your health and wellbeing. 

So what is CBD?

In essence, CBD is an extract of cannabis Sativa. CBD is just one of the thousands of compounds produced by the cannabis plants but belongs to the most well-known class: cannabinoids. It can be fused into many different products that are said to be beneficial to relieve physical and mental pain. 

It is important to know that pure CBD does not contain THC, the compound that can have a psychoactive effect when ingested or inhaled. With the absence of THC, CBD is legal to sell and consume across the United States.

So how does it react with your body?

CBD interacts with your endocannabinoid system. Simply put, CBD reacts with the natural cannabis-like substances that occur inside the body. By interacting with your cannabinoid receptors, it can improve almost all of the body’s functions that the endocannabinoid system effects.

It can improve your mood, reduce inflammation, reduce anxiety and help with chronic pain. CBD has also been proven to help ease the symptoms of ADD and ADHD. 

CBD contains pain-relieving and anti-inflammatory properties. Unlike a lot of pharmaceutical products, larger amounts of CBD can be taken without affecting your mental capability. It also has a much lower addiction rate than most prescription or over-the-counter drugs.

Sadly, pain is a part of everyone’s life and more prevalent for some than we truly realize. At Purveda, we aim to create products that don’t only complement your daily routine, but that is safe, natural and effective.
