At Blaqstar Farms, we offer healing strains of CBD-dominant cannabis. CBD is often used in the form of oils, creams, and other topicals. The high CBD cannabis in our marijuana creams and lotions has been grown cleanly without the use of harmful pesticides or chemicals for the most natural products possible. Some studies have shown that CBD strains and cannabis creams have anti-inflammatory benefits to help soothe aches. Unlike THC, CBD does not produce psychoactive effects, which makes it an ideal treatment for certain medical conditions.
CBD refers to cannabidiol, a cannabinoid that is secreted from cannabis flowers. CBD is just one of the many cannabinoids that come from cannabis. One of the most well-known cannabinoids from cannabis is THC, which causes the psychoactive effects when smoking marijuana. In addition to THC and CBD, there are over 80 unique cannabinoids that stem from cannabis. Each cannabinoid effects your body and mind differently, so different cannabinoids are often used for various reasons. For example, CBD is non-psychoactive, so this cannabinoid is often sought-after to be used in products for those who want to experience the benefits of marijuana but do not wish to get high or experience the psychoactive effects of THC.
|Non-psychoactive Properties||Psychoactive Effects|
|Binds to CB2 Receptors||Binds to CB1 Receptors|
|Common in cannabis topicals & oils||High concentration in many popular strains|
|Often used to reduce nausea, swelling, aches, chronic pain, certain cardiovascular conditions, and more||Some benefits include inducing hunger, treating certain neurological conditions, some cancers, recurring pain, and more|
Because CBD does not produce psychoactive effects, CBD is favored by many people who want to experience the benefits of marijuana but not get high. CBD has a more calming, relaxing effect that counteracts the intense psychoactive elements of THC. Some cannabis users prefer to remain clear-minded and use CBD for its healing purposes. Various studies have shown that CBD topicals may help with pain, inflammation, aches, and more.
CBD cannabis has grown in popularity due to its many mental and physical health benefits. Research has shown that CBD may be used to treat several medical conditions. CBD cannabis has a soothing, calming effect, so patients with stress disorders may experience a reduction in anxiety and stressful symptoms.
CBD may be used to treat:
A topical is a cream, lotion, or other substance that is applied directly to the skin for relief. CBD topicals are cannabis-infused creams and lotions that have a concentrated amount of the CBD cannabinoid. Marijuana topicals are especially useful for treating muscle aches, spasms, soreness, and inflammation. CBD topicals are a newer method of marijuana consumption that are absorbed through the skin for relief of pain, soreness, and more. Certain CBD creams and lotions are comprised of specific strains of cannabis. The effect of the cannabis lotion and cream used will reflect the specific strain of cannabis that is infused into the cream. For example, a strain of CBD that has anti-inflammatory properties will make a topical that can reduce swelling.
Your body has 2 networks of cannabinoid receptors that are known as CB1 and CB2. CB1 receptors are generally found within the brain. THC binds to CB1 receptors and triggers the psychoactive properties of marijuana that cause a euphoric high.
CB2 receptors are located throughout the body. Your body naturally produces endocannabinoids, which activate your CB1 and CB2 receptors. THC and CBD also activate your cannabinoid receptors. A high is brought upon by the THC entering your bloodstream and triggering a response in your neurological CB1 receptors. Cannabis topicals are absorbed through the skin and do not trigger your CB1 receptors. Instead, they activate your CB2 receptors. Various strains of cannabis and different types of marijuana topicals can affect the CB2 receptors differently, causing a wide range of potential relief from various medical conditions.
