What is CBD?
CBD oil for pregnancy and other health challenges are popping up everywhere! There are over 100 phytocannabinoids found in CBD, which mirror the endocannabinoids in the body. This is produced by your own body’s endocannabinoid system. The two of the most popular phytocannabinoids are tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD). Unlike CBD, THC produces the intoxicating ‘high’, therefore most people prefer using CBD oil.
In addition, our body has receptors CB1 and CB2, which are reacted or activated with consuming CBD oil. These receptors are located throughout the brain and body and control a lot of our physiological processes. Some include pain, mood, and inflammation.
What do the Experts Say?
Researchers have been conducting studies on CBD before, during, and after pregnancy. Experts have reported no clear effects of cannabis causing issues for the growing baby. Therefore, there are no sufficient evidence to suggest that cannabis causes long-term developmental challenges. Click Here to see Project CBD results.
