Currently, the U.S. National Library of Medicine lists just 25 clinical studies involving CBD and its effects on pain. Only a handful of those have been completed so far, but there are more in the works. Many of these trials involve pain in people with advanced cancer, and while some show positive pay-offs, others demonstrate that cannabis treatment doesn’t provide any more relief than a placebo. The catch: Most of this science involves both CBD and THC (or Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol, the part of cannabis that does give you a high).
Cannabidiol has little direct effect on the cannabinoid receptors in the brain, so it is largely devoid of the euphoric effects of THC, the major intoxicant in marijuana. But if CBD really had no psychotropic effect at all, it would be hard to understand its popularity. In fact, because it alters the brain’s serotonin receptors and may interfere with the breakdown of anandamide — a cannabidoid that is produced naturally in the brain — it could well affect feeling and thinking.
We start with an exceptionally high-quality lotion which we infuse with our hemp extract. So, not only will you get the CBD you seek, you will also get a lotion that moisturizes without leaving you feeling greasy. And, the pleasant aroma is soft and subtle, not overwhelming. The lotion is ideal for using in larger parts of the body as it is not quite as thick as the cream. The lotion is able to cover a larger part of the body, although it doesn’t have to be spread out. It can also be used in smaller areas if that’s what you desire. This product is made with 100mg of CBD per ounce of product.
