How can CBD help me? Whether you suffer from a number of different ailments or are simply looking to maintain your health, CBD may be a good choice for you. Studies show CBD acts as an anti-inflammatory, anticonvulsant, antioxidant, as well as an antipsychotic. Many of our customers are using CBD to alleviate symptoms of epilepsy, ADHD, anxiety, depression, chronic pain and many more. It is also known to reduce vomiting and nausea as well as increase appetite. Due to the fact that CBD has no psychoactive effects, it can be safely used by anyone. At first glance, the benefits of CBD may seem too good to be true. The fact of the matter is, scientists have been studying cannabinoids for over a century and the results show that they are extremely effective.
How Does CBD Work?
CBD binds to receptors in the endocannabinoid system which helps to maintain homeostasis as well as other important bodily functions. CBD also promotes cardiovascular health by protecting against the vascular damage caused by high levels of glucose in the blood. Until recently, the widespread use and acceptance of cannabinoids have been stifled by the fact that THC produces psychoactive effects and has the potential for abuse. Thanks to efforts by non-profit organizations such as the Hemp Industries Association (HIA), the legalization of CBD harvested from industrial hemp has been adopted by all 50 states. Illuminent works closely with the HIA to further the acceptance and use of CBD products.
