The mechanism of action for CBD is not clearly understood. If it is the “magic bullet” some people think it is, that’s partially due to our lack of understanding just how it works. The THC in cannabis, on the other hand, has a clear psychoactive influence triggered by its scientifically-confirmed binding with neurotransmitters.
That binding influences the brain’s response, altering it towards paranoia or modulating towards a clear focus. CBD lacks the negative risks found in THC consumption. It appears that, instead of binding with neurotransmitters, CBD buffers negative influences. It throws itself in front of attacks on the nervous system’s signals.
Consequently, CBD enables energy to flow by running interference on otherwise exhausting pressures.
What science has said about CBD
More than half the articles ever published on cannabinoids and the human Endocannabinoid System (ECS) have been published since 2015, and it remains a fascinating challenge. Research has focused on the efficacy of CBD for some time and has produced significant results, such as the FDA approved medications for treating recalcitrant epilepsy and Davet’s syndrome.
One study in Brazil, published in Molecules (2013) and updated in Handbook of Cannabis and Related Pathologies (2017), confirms the existence of antioxidant values in CBD. As organic molecules age or are damaged, they lose electrons and become free radicals. Humans need antioxidants to step in where that electron left to restore the necessary balance.
In another study in the British Journal of Pharmacology (2005), they concluded CBD has anti-tumoral benefits impairing the spread of cancerous tumor cells. Their results “… reinforce the evidence of antitumoral properties of CBD, demonstrating its ability to limit tumor invasion, although the mechanism of its pharmacological effects remains to be clarified.” In doing this, CBD redirects biochemical stressors to enable the intervention of positive processes.
In addition, Chris D. Meletis and Betty Wedman-St. Louis wrote, “Cannabidiol inhibits the degradation of endocannabinoid anandamide” in Cannabis: A Clinician’s Guide (2018). Anandamide has been nicknamed “the bliss molecule,” and in inhibiting its degradation, CBD keeps anandamide where it belongs managing our moods. It follows that this reduces energy-sapping anxieties. This updates research into CBD’s anxiolytic benefits in Pharmacology (1990).
Multiple research projects, limited in the U.S. to work on non-humans, confirm CBD’s influence on inflammation-related pain, nausea, muscular cramps, epileptic spasms, and more. So, while it’s difficult to identify the specific mechanism of action for CBD, evidence suggests there is “a CBD effect” in which numerous biochemical and neuro-chemical benefits ride on its coattails.
What delivery system works for you
To secure the positive benefits of CBD, most people avoid smoking marijuana. Both the THC content and the negative health benefits of inhaling combusted carbon turn people off—not to mention the social stigma.
Fortunately, there are many ways people can enjoy the health benefits of CBD. And, if they are looking to improve their sense of well-being and the energy that follows, there will find real options in Nano-CBD products. The secret to Nano-CBD lies in the processing. If you start with world-class, pesticide-free hemp, you then use CO2 to extract the key values without leaving contaminating solvents.
The Nano CBD extraction process removes the terpenes to leave a purer CBD for oils, edibles, and more hemp CBD products. This process of concentration intensifies its bioavailability to reach your system sooner.
Whether you use sublingual CBD oil drops, enjoy infused candies, or take Nano-CBD capsules, your CBD benefits hit home quickly and last longer. Some people like their gummy bears, watermelon slices, and lollipops for discrete use when and where they want. Others like to pop a capsule along with their other medications and supplements. And, still, others look forward to a Nano-CBD syrup with melatonin before bed.
Lately, there has been a growing market for E-juices. Convenience stores and supermarket checkout aisles are stocked with so-called “energy boosters” chemically-packed with caffeine, sugars, and nicotine. Third party-tested Nano-CBD e-juices include Kosher-Grade Vegetable Glycerin (80%), Propylene Glycol (20%), Nano-Emulsified Anhydrous Hemp Oil (300Mg), Natural Flavoring—and 0% nicotine.
Think CBD when you’re looking for energy
There is enough scientific research to let you cherry-pick your favorites. But science and experience repeatedly confirm brain and body health benefits that relieve your systems to rest, recover, and restore. As they do, they empower your energy levels.
Finding the fast-acting, broadly-effective, and contamination-free products to help you find that new “normal” is not that hard if you know what you are looking for.
