What is CBD?

CBD (or Cannabidiol), is one of the most effective out of 110 cannabinoids found in hemp and cannabis leaves.

CBD element

Cannabidiol molecules have existed in nature for millions of years, but were only discovered in 1940 by an American chemist, Roger Adams[1], while analysing the molecular structure of cannabis. He was the first to succeed in isolating the CBD molecule.

Since 1970, a number of studies by various scientists tried to clarify how CBD interacts with the human body.

The first official CBD experiment with people was conducted in 1978 by Jewish scientist Raphael Mechoulam[2] (he is now called “the father of CBD” and is still active in the cannabis medicine field).

Jewish scientist Dr. Raphael Mechoulam, who conducted the first experiments of CBD on human health in 1978.

His team administered a daily dose of 300mg CBD isolate daily dose on a group of 8 people for 4 months and observed, how would that treat epilepsy.

The results were surprisingly positive. 4 of the subjects stopped having seizures alltogether, while 3 had a decrease in frequency (that was the main groundwork leading to creation of anti-epilepsy drugs called „Epidiolex“ 30 years later).

The study was met controversially (as were most topics related to cannabis) but it attracted wide public curiosity for the CBD ingredient. As a result, it also initiated a chain of new studies.

CBD

Endocannabinoids are the 24/7 workforce keeping long-term balance in our neuro/immune systems, which sometimes react too sensitively to the negative influences in our lives — disease, injury, stress, bad people, to name a few.

Endocannabinoids work well enough under normal conditions, but in some extreme situations they fail to keep the balance.

Therefore, CBD is a great peacemaker when things get out of hand.

CBD food supplements are mostly valued for bringing daily physical and mental functions or reactions, such as sleep, pain, emotions, immune system, back into balance.

Even though there are only a few officially approved CBD drugs and all of them are very expensive, 2019 surveys showed that 7% of the US population already use CBD on a regular basis, mostly as food supplements or cosmetics.

Due to its rapidly increasing popularity, Cannabidiol can now be found in all sorts of forms — oils, capsules, creams, beverages, coffee, gummies and many others, so everyone can pick his/her preferred formula.

How to Tie Dye with Bleach - 10 Folding Techniques with Pictures Tie dye is a little bit chaotic, and you can’t really tell it what to do. You can get the right tools and use the right methods, but in the end, the dye will go where it wants and do what it wants! The great part is, tie dye is tough to mess up if you do it with an open mind, mixing and pouring colors with the expectation that there is beauty in the uncontrollable. Plus, it is impossible to create two tie dye pieces that are exactly the same, so when you create with tie dye, the results are always uniquely yours! Any variation in color, pattern, or any unexpected result are all just part of the swirly, crumply, gorgeous mess that is tie dye, or any kind of making and creating. see details here :Top 10 reverse tie dye ideas and inspiration
