Focus on CBD

What it is, how it works, and what its properties are

Thanks to the progressive liberalization and the ever-increasing number of studies concerning it, in recent years, CBD has become the true star of the Hemp universe. Let’s discover together all its properties and its incredible benefits!

Among the over 140 phytocannabinoids naturally present in the Hemp Sativa plant, Cannabidiol, more commonly known as CBD, stands out for its characteristics and peculiarities.

Like other phytocannabinoids, CBD is also extracted from the flowers and leaves of Hemp, and although its molecular composition is very similar to that of THC (delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol), CBD has no psychotropic effects: what also makes a difference is how these two cannabinoids interact with the human endocannabinoid system (ECS).

The ECS is the biological communication system between cells and is composed of three elements: endocannabinoids, receptors, and enzymes. Its task is to connect brain stimuli to bodily responses, making it responsible for sensations such as pain, sleep, appetite, and immune system reactivity. Another essential function of the ECS is to ensure the body’s homeostasis, maintaining balance.

CBD acts directly and entirely naturally on the endocannabinoid system

Thanks to its unique composition, CBD acts directly and entirely naturally on the endocannabinoid system, binding especially to receptors in peripheral systems of the body such as muscles and bones.


It is important to emphasize that CBD does not cause any psychotropic sensations, does not produce any type of dependence, and, according to a report from the World Health Organization in 2018, no serious documented side effects are associated with its use. These are three of the main reasons that have made it legal in many countries, including Italy.

CBD does not cause any psychotropic sensations, does not produce any type of dependence.

The peculiarities and potential of CBD are the subject of ongoing medical studies, with therapeutic effects demonstrated by numerous scientific publications, easily accessible online.

Among the many functions attributed to CBD, its myorelaxant, analgesic, and antioxidant properties stand out, effective in the treatment of anxiety, stress, muscle pain, chronic pain, inflammation, and sleep disorders.

Because it can interact directly with the endocannabinoid system, CBD is a valuable ally in maintaining harmony within the body, opening doors to new opportunities in treating disorders and conditions that do not respond to more conventional remedies.


The simplest and most practical way to incorporate CBD into one’s daily routine is undoubtedly in the form of oil.

Scientific evidence has shown that, to ensure perfect dissolution and promote absorption by the body, after extraction from the flowers and leaves of Hemp Sativa, CBD must be combined with a fat, preferably a high-quality coconut oil.

Selecting the product is important but it is essential to learn to listen to your needs and feelings

Usually, three different concentrations of CBD oil (5% – 10% – 20%) are available on the market, each particularly suitable for the treatment of specific disorders.

For mild pains, as a mild myorelaxant, for light states of agitation related to daily life, and to promote sleep, choosing a 5% CBD oil is advisable.

For the treatment of chronic pain, to control states of anxiety and stress, a 10% CBD oil is certainly the most effective option.

For more intense states of pain, opting for a 20% CBD oil is particularly indicated.

Choosing the right product is undoubtedly important, but what is absolutely essential is learning to listen to one’s needs and sensations, in order to make informed choices and achieve the best possible result.
