The cannabis plant is believed to contain up to 40% of CBD. It is acquired from the plant using different extraction methods. Most often, carbon dioxide is used as a solvent to extract CBD from the plant matter. By applying a combination of high pressure and low temperature, the maximum quantity of CBD can be extracted from the plant.
The ECS receptors are of two types: CB1 and CB2, and their job is to keep endocannabinoid intact. The enzymes make the second component of the ECS and they come in different forms but only two forms have the ability to breakdown the endocannabinoids.
Cannabis oil buzz
The growing awareness of the medicinal properties of cannabis oil has made it a buzzy wellness product. In countries where CBD is legalized to treat various health conditions cannabis the industry is flourishing. You may come across coffee shops selling CBD lattes, spas offering CBD massage, and cosmetics companies introducing CBD based wellness products.
The endocannabinoid system consists of three components namely receptors, enzymes, and endocannabinoids. It is important to note these ECS components are present in the body and their function does not depend upon the CBD. It means ECS components keep operating even when one does not consume CBD.
The growing scientific evidence also sheds light on cannabis oil’s potential to heal a number of physical health conditions. For instance, a study conducted on rats concluded that CBD can effectively help to address the arthritis pain.
It’s the question of the moment. And the answer? Apparently, in any way you can think of. Already, we’re seeing such a wide range of ways you can take CBD in Bangkok. The substance has been enthusiastically incorporated into a huge variety of day-to-day lifestyle products. Soon, we’ll be brushing our teeth with CBD (no, really) and picking some up for the road from 7-Eleven. CBD oil is super versatile; it can be ingested as part of food, or applied to the skin in the form of oils or lotions. Does it affect the taste or smell? Probably. But try it, and you just might take a liking to it.
Short for Cannabidiol, CBD is a chemical compound from the Cannabis Sativa plant, a.k.a. marijuana (or weed, or pot, or Mary Jane – whatever you want to call it). Completely natural, the substance is known to induce feelings of calmness and relaxation. However, CBD should not be confused with marijuana or hemp. The terms are all tossed around together, but marijuana and hemp are actually names of the two primary species of Cannabis Sativa. Both contain CBD, with hemp having a much higher concentration.
4. Ice cream
If there was one way to make ice cream any better, it’s adding CBD to it. Post-break-up pints just got a lot more therapeutic.
The hit Khao Yai cafe has reinvented itself as a chill co-working space in Bangkok. And by chill, we mean really chill. Here, you’ll find CBD-infused tea and other drinks to pair with their signature Calm croissant – buttery pastries with a tint of green, which we assure you isn’t matcha.
Still in the works, but one of Thailand’s biggest dental care companies is set to launch a CBD-infused toothpaste, apparently relying on its anti-bacterial and gum-soothing properties to take natural toothpastes to the next level.
