CBD has become the talk of the town in recent times. Let’s take a look at what it really is and why CBD capsules are becoming so popular around the corner.
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a chemical compound that is found in the cannabis plant. It belongs to a class of compounds called cannabinoids. It is different from THC (the well-known compound in marijuana that causes a feeling of being high) due to its non-psychoactivity i.e. it doesn’t get a person high.
CBD Capsules are considered as a food supplement legally and they are increasingly becoming popular. They are an easy way to consume CBD. Most of these capsules contain CBD oil mixed with MCT oil such as coconut oil. There may also be some capsules that contain solely CBD oil along with an inert powder to increase the volume of the capsule. Such capsules are called CBD Oil isolate based capsules. One other option that is becoming increasingly popular is water soluble capsules.
The reasons CBD supplements are becoming so popular due to the numerous health benefits as well as the ease of consumption associated with them. Let’s take a look at the benefits:
Helps control anxiety
CBD interacts with receptors present in the human brain that are responsible for mood and our behavior. These are called serotonin receptors. CBD has an effect on these and hence, a person feels calm.
CBD has also been shown to be an allosteric modulator of the GABA- A receptors. In simple language, it means that CBD causes a change in the shape and size of the receptor and hence, the action of the receptor is affected. In this case, CBD amplifies the calming effect of the GABA-A receptor helping to control anxiety and control depression.
Acts as Painkiller
CBD has further documented interaction with vanilloid receptors present in our brain to change the perception of pain in our brain, and hence it acts as a pain killer.
Also, CBD oil has anti-inflammatory action as it interacts with certain receptors, thus helping control and reduce pain.
May Prevent Cancer
CBD has been seen to affect a certain receptor in the brain called GPR55. This receptor when activated causes the spread of cancer cells. CBD acts as a deactivator and blocks the action of this receptor, thereby controlling the spread of cancer cells.
CBD also has an effect on a certain receptor called PPAR- gamma which helps control the spread of cancer cells and can induce tumor regression in human lung cancer.
Due to the fact that CBD oil will be in capsule form, you don’t have to worry about the dosage as it is already measured and accurate. It becomes very easy to consume the appropriate dosage with the help of CBD capsules. It also becomes easy to plan consumption accordingly.
Portable and Convenient
CBD Capsules are extremely portable, none other method is as easy to carry and transport. It becomes very easy to take them on the go and not worry about to consume CBD.
