Celebrities Enjoying CBD
In the last few years, Cannabis has taken the world by storm. As once it was a substance deemed dangerous and a gateway into more serious drugs, now has become a safe and fun substance to enjoy or even utilized for health issues. While let’s be real, weed has been used by many, despite its laws against it, now we are finally being given reliable information on its benefits and are even seeing its use against serious illnesses like epilepsy, chronic pain and even cancer.
With all this new information comes the split between the two components of cannabis/hemp, THC and CBD. In short, THC is the compound in cannabis that provides you with a high and makes you want to down a bowl of mac and cheese at 2 am and CBD is the medicinal compound that doesn’t cause any high at all.
CBD is short for Cannabidiol, and Hempika describes it as “chemical compounds, that activate cannabinoid receptors, spread throughout the body of all vertebrates. Cannabinoid receptor activation interacts with neurotransmitters, which has a beneficial effect on our endocannabinoid system.” More simply put, CBD can be found naturally in the body, but if consumed can provide many health benefits with little to no side effects. Making it the more natural choice for many battling health problems.
