CBD Oil in Albany: Why This Healthcare Trend Is So Popular

Written By Dr. David Wren Chiropractic on April 6, 2020

CBD oil in Albany New YorkCBD is showing up everywhere these days. 

Even so, there’s still a lot of misunderstanding about CBD oil and its uses. For example, a lot of people wonder if using this oil will make them high. They wonder if there are any side effects or if the benefits are too good to be true. 

Today, you’ll learn how this compound affects the body’s endocannabinoid system and why you should try it.  

What Is the Endocannabinoid System and How Does CBD Oil Impact It?

The endocannabinoid system is composed of endocannabinoids (neurotransmitters that bind to cannabinoid receptors). It is also composed of cannabinoid receptor proteins, which are located in both the peripheral and vertebrate central nervous system. In other words, they’re located in the nerves of the head and spine, as well as those outside the brain and spinal cord.

Cannabinoid receptors help to regulate pain and inflammation. 

How CBD Oil Can Help You Feel and Function Better

Inflammation can be caused by disease, trauma, and stress. If not addressed and reduced (or eliminated), inflammation can lead to chronic pain, as well as other diseases

CBD oil is phytocannabinoid cannabidiol, a natural cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant. It is a concentrated oil found in the naturally occurring resin that coats the plant and its leaves. 

CBD is related to THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), the active ingredient in marijuana that gets users high. Though related, CBD does not provide the same mind-altering effects of THC.

So, why are CBD products so popular? It’s because the chemicals in CBD oil can help relieve pain, anxiety, depression, and cancer-related symptoms. CBD oil has also proven effective in improving heart health and symptoms of neurological diseases like Parkinson’s, and possibly even preventing tumor growth and diabetes.
