WHAT IS CBD?

CBD (Cannabidiol) is a compound that comes from the Cannabis plant.

As CBD comes from the controversial Cannabis plant, it often gets confused with THC. CBD and THC are both examples of Cannabinoids. CBD and THC the most well known Cannabinoids and there are currently 113 known Cannabinoids. THC is is an illegal substance that produces a high. However, the CBD products we provide do not create a high and are legal in the UK.

Cannabinoids, such as CBD and THC, are compounds that interact with an unfamiliar system in the body called the Endocannabinoid system. The Endocannabinoid system is found in all vertebrates and is believed to maintain balance in the body (via a process called Homeostasis) and regulate signalling throughout the body.

WHY SHOULD YOU USE CBD PRODUCTS?

You may not be getting the most out of your Endocannabinoid system. This can lead to an Endocannabinoid deficiency, where the Cannabinoids already produced naturally in your body (Endocannabinoids) are not functioning as required, leading to a decrease in overall wellness and what research suggests can be the cause of pathophysiological syndromes.

STUDIES HAVE SHOWN THE POTENTIAL OF CBD TO REVERSE PATHOPHYSIOLOGICAL SYNDROMES!

The performance of your Endocannabinoid system can be measured by your Endocannabinoid tone. Your Endocannabinoid tone refers to the levels of Endocannabinoids in your system. When your Endocannabinoid tone is low, Endocannabinoid levels are believed to be low and homeostasis can be disrupted and signalling confused, leading to Endocannabinoid deficiencies. This is where CBD products come into it. CBD interacts with the Endocannabinoid system when absorbed in the body, influencing the activity of the natural compounds in your body (called Endocannabinoids) which function to counteract pathophysiological issues.

CBD gives the Endocannabinoid System a “nudge” (Russo, 2016), promoting Endocannabinoids to function and promote homeostasis and wellness.

Yes, you already have Cannabinoids in your system (Anandamide and 2-Arachidonoylglycerol). The Cannabinoids in your system are referred to as Endocannabinoids (Endogenous Cannabinoids) that are naturally produced by your body and are functioning right now as you read this!

However, Phytocannabinoids (that is Cannabinoids specifically from the Cannabis plant) such as CBD can mimic the effect of Endocannabinoids and also promote the functioning of these Endocannabinoids, increasing your overall Cannabinoid dose, enhancing your Endocannabinoid tone and positively benefiting the Endocannabinoid system. Additionally, CBD will provide the effects of other Cannabinoids, such as THC, without getting you high!

At the Lemon Tree CBD, we offer advice on the CBD products we sell, to ensure individuals are receiving the products to best promote wellness.
