Introducing Indica Dreams CBD products – new to the Miss Patty’s family of herbal remedies!
Research indicates that CBD extracted from hemp, which is legal in the U.S., affects the body’s biological processes to act as a pain reliever (analgesic), as well as an antioxidant and an anti-inflammatory. The mechanism of action for pain relief, as reported by the NCBI is “via modulation of hepatic cytochrome p450 leading to increased bioavailability of endogenous mediators of pain (i.e. serotonin) and exogenous analgesics”. In other words, CBD increases the effectiveness of natural and supplemental pain relievers.
When it is held under the tongue as an oil, tincture or spray, the CBD molecules enter the bloodstream directly without having to pass through the digestive system and the effects may be noticed within 15 – 45 minutes. Smoking the CBD also introduces the molecules directly into the bloodstream. Edible CBD products like gummies may need a bit more time to be processed. Our CBD has been flavored with oranges.
Although cannabidiol, CBD for short, is found in marijuana, it is instead derived from the hemp plant which became legal due to the Farm Bill in 2018. Studies and self-reported claims suggest that CBD is helpful in alleviating chronic pain, anxiety, insomnia, and addiction. However, it’s best to let your doctor know if you use CBD regularly as it can have some side effects such as nausea, fatigue and irritability, and it can compete with prescribed medications for liver enzymes thus affecting medication dosages.
