Around here at MG headquarters, we really fancy a CBD vape when life gets a little too life-y and our friends at Care By Design have been the go vape manufacturer here in California since vapes were born. Their owner Dennis has been a pioneer in the cannabis movement since it began to see the light of day many years ago. We are so happy top know some of the OG's made it to the other side of the legalization. We borrowed a few excepts from their blog to tell you about the CBD Rich vapes we have available now.
Over the years, the evolution of cannabis has changed and what was has been used predominantly for getting high, is now being used for so much more. It’s available to more Californians than ever before, and we’re starting to frequently hear, “What exactly is CBD?” Cannabis plants produce more than 400 different compounds, and of those, more than 60 of them are specific to the cannabis plant. Scientists call these specific compounds “cannabinoids.” One of these cannabinoids, in particular, is believed to help with a wide variety of medicinal issues. This compound is known as cannabidiol, or CBD.
What is CBD?
Cannabidiol or CBD is a non-psychotropic cannabinoid compound found in cannabis and hemp. CBD is believe to have strong anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-spasm, and anti-convulsant properties. CBD also directly activates serotonin receptors, which suggests an anti-depressant effect, as well. Preclinical and clinical studies have shown that CBD may be therapeutic for many conditions, including chronic pain, cancer, anxiety, diabetes, epilepsy, rheumatoid arthritis, PTSD, sleep disorders, alcoholism, cardiovascular disease, antibiotic-resistant infections, and neurological ailments. Academic research centers in the United States and elsewhere are currently studying the effects of CBD on these and other health problems.
