What is CBD (Cannabidiol)? – a short synopsis
CBD is short for Cannabidiol. CBD is a chemical compound found in the Cannabis Sativa L. plant which is a hemp plant and a cousin of the Marijuana plant. CBD is the non-psychoactive compound in the hemp plant, so taking CBD as part of your daily wellness routine will not make you ‘high’…. There is a higher percentage of CBD in the hemp plant than there is in Marijuana.
Reasons why CBD can help with chronic intermittent pain in the lumber region
CBD is relatively new to the health and wellness market, but is catching peoples’ attention due to its pain alleviating properties. There is nothing more tiresome than experiencing sub-conscious back pain all day long. Sleeping can become an issue as well if you experience prolonged niggling pain – if you don’t get a good night’s sleep then you awake grumpy and potentially anxious and cannot focus on the demands of the day in front of you.
It is well documented that taking CBD (Cannabidiol) as part of your daily wellness routine can help to alleviate stress and anxiety by bringing the body into a state of calm. Back pain can sometimes be caused by bad posture, and the more pain you are in your posture can deteriorate to compensate. By taking CBD on a regular basis and as part of your daily wellness routine, helps to relax the muscles around your lumber region. By relaxing these muscles your posture can improve dramatically and the pain can dissipate… Simply put, bad posture can put pressure on nerves surrounding your discs which can then cause excruciating pain.
If you think that the average person spends four or five hours in a sitting position – bad posture can also cause ‘numb bum’ which happens when you sit for too long in the same position. Apart from obvious back pain, and ‘numb bum’, bad posture can also be responsible for headaches and general malaise…

The importance of Terpenes (whole plant)
The importance of whole plant extract cannot be emphasised enough, as great cannabidiol should be full of terpenes. It is the terpenes that give the product its natural hemp aroma, colour and flavour. Terpenes are a large and diverse class of organic compounds produced by a variety of plants and are also major biosynthetic building blocks. Terpenes act on receptors and neurotransmitters in the brain affecting serotonin and dopamine activity.
