CBD 101

The Basics 

Cannabidiol (CBD) is the most prevalent cannabinoid found in the hemp plant. It’s history in medicine dates back to prehistory. It has long been pushed aside while scientists and users focused on the mind-altering component, THC. CBD has been known to reduce anxiety and stress, inflammation and pain; as well as topical ailments like psoriasis, acne and eczema. Pure CBD is non-intoxicating, has almost no side effects, and is virtually impossible to lethally overdose.

How CBD Works?

A natural, non-psychoactive compound promoting everyday balance, health and wellness.

The Endocannabinoid System (ECS) is involved in establishing and maintaining human health. Endocannabinoids and their receptors are found throughout the body: in the brain, organs, connective tissues, glands, and immune system. At Vision One Naturals, we don’t believe in a bandaid approach. Pure CBD Isolate helps to address the underlying causes of many physical and mental health issues and allows the body to get back to a healthy state of balance.

Compared to what?

There is one major difference between CBD (one of the key ingredients used in all of Vision One Natural products) and all other pain relievers that we feel you should know about: The main difference is that CBD works directly at the site of irritated nerve receptors.Why not just take Advil? You can, but… CBD can act as a lock and key system with the human body’s existing receptors, sending signals to the specific problem area, and then reducing the pain you’re experiencing. Ibuprofen keeps injured or damaged cells from making and releasing a chemical called prostaglandin. When the cells don’t release this chemical, it means that the brain won’t get the pain message as quickly or clearly. So your pain becomes less severe for as long as the cells aren’t releasing the chemical (and only for as long as you’re taking the medicine). 

CBD vs. THC

Two acronyms you’ve probably seen, THC and CBD. These are both cannabinoids found in the Cannabis plant and can have an effect on the way you feel. Tetrahydrocannabinol or THC is a psychotropic cannabinoid found in high amounts in the Marijuana plant and can get you high. Cannabidiol or CBD is found in both Hemp and Marijuana, the difference is there’s higher THC content in Marijuana and a very low amount in industrial Hemp.
