Cannabidiol (INN; acronym: CBD) is one of at least 113 active cannabinoids identified in cannabis. It is a major phytocannabinoid, accounting for up to 40% of the plant's extract. CBD does not appear to have any intoxicating effects such as those caused by THC in marijuana, but may have effects on anxiety and an anti-psychotic effect.
Despite its growing popularity many still ask the question: does Hemp Extract make you high? Well, the answer is NO it does not! And that is a reason behind the legalization of CBD in the several States of America. It’s the oil derived from cannabis or hemp plant. In layman’s terms, CBD is the good component of hemp plants and THC is the bad one, mainly because the later one can get you high. Special extraction techniques are used to separate THC from Cannabidiol or CBD. Please research all of the benefits of Hemp Extract that are out there.
Hemp is a rich source of gamma-linolic acid (GLA), an omega 6 fatty acid. Studies have shown that GLA is useful in helping the body balance hormones. For women, supplementing with GLA can help ease premenstrual syndrome. They may also reduce cramping and pain during menstruation.
Results from these studies, using doses of between 400 and 600 milligrams of CBD, indicate increases in brain activity in the left parahippocampal gyrus and decreases in the left amygdala-hippocampus complex, along with attenuated responses during the recognition of fearful facial expressions in the amygdala and the anterior cingulate. Collectively, these patterns of SPECT and fMRI results are consistent with effects on alleviating anxiety, irritability, fear and stress responses from hemp-derived CBD administration.
