CBD Oil for Pain and Much More…in Texas!

How CBD Works in the Human Body Graph

What is CBD?

CBD is an acronym for cannabidiol, one of the cannabinoids in the cannabis plant.  The Elixinol brand that we carry is produced from the leaves, stalks and flowers of hemp.  There are over 60 cannabinoids found in hemp and cannabis, the only plant we currently think they are found. In addition, hemp contains vitamins, minerals, phytosterols, pigments, proteins, enzymes, antioxidants, flavonoids, and essential fatty acids!

How does CBD work?

It works by activating receptors in the brain and nervous system. It affects different receptors than the THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) receptors.  CBD receptors are found all over the body, but are abundant in the areas of the brain responsible for movement, coordination pain and sensory perception, emotion, cognition, and the list goes on. CBD receptors found in the immune system are shown to reduce inflammation and some types of pain.  Unlike THC, CBD does not have a psychoactive component.  The effects will vary, depending on dose, method of application, and condition being managed..

What are the Benefits of CBD?

CBD is mostly commonly used for natural pain modulation and relief for chronic and acute pain. Cannabidiol has been shown to reduce some types of anxiety, relieve nausea, cardiovascular health, and much more.

CBD & the Cardiovascular System?

CBD has been shown to produce vasorelaxation and can protect against vascular damage caused by high glucose environments.  In general, a common thread throughout these CBD studies is the anti inflammatory and antioxidant effects of CBD. (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22670794)

Why Hemp?

Hemp oil is not psychoactive, so the CBD oil that Barton Creek Chiropractic carries is not psychoactive.  Unlike medical marijuana, hemp does not contain the mind altering properties of THC. Actually, it has been shown that some people use CBD from hemp for its anti-psychoactive properties. The Elixinol products that we carry use the whole hemp plant, extracting upwards of 400 phytonutrients that exist in hemp.
