Endocannabinoids - Endocannabinoids are small molecules which bind to activate cannabinoid receptors. Unlike phytocannabinoids, endocannabinoids are produced naturally in the body. They are produced from fat-like cells on demand and have a similar effect (and potential health benefit) to phytocannabinoids. This is seen in how endocannabinoids regulate the communication of neurons as well as the body’s anti-inflammatory response.
CBD Tinctures - Consumers commonly start using CBD oils in tincture form. CBD tinctures have a lower concentration of CBD oil, so they can be used to ease into treatment. Patients can receive the full benefits of CBD simply by adding a small drop to their food or drink or by using sublingually. Tinctures come in variety of flavors, but can also be purchased with no flavor.
