CBD as Alertness Inducer

Even though CBD is known to induce alertness, in other cases and studies, it was revealed to be an effective sleep regulator. This effect, seemingly contradictory, reinforces the idea that the endocannabinoid system (ECS) acts as a regulatory system of balance, once that balance has been broken.Researcher S. Shannon presented the case of a 10-year-old girl with post-traumatic stress disorder in which CBD was able to improve her quality of sleep, where other medications were not effective (Shannon, S. et al., 2016).

CBD: Purified Extracts vs. Complete Extracts

Currently, dietary supplements that contain cannabidiol (CBD) in different concentrations are manufactured through two basic methods. The first method, called extraction of complete extracts, involves extracting the CBD together with other components of the plant, such as terpenoids, flavonoids, chlorophyll, waxes, etc. The second method, extraction of purified extracts, involves isolating the CBD molecule in its crystal form to subsequently dilute it in vegetable oil, until the desired concentration is achieved.

The anti-inflammatory effect of cannabidiol has been known for some time, with numerous scientific studies supporting this therapeutic effect.Among other things, the anti-inflammatory mechanism of  CBD is based on inhibition of the effect of interleukin 17 (IL-17), which is a pro-inflammatory substance, and the stimulation of the anti-inflammatory cytokine IL-10. Cytokines are substances involved in inflammatory processes, and CBD hinders those that promote this process from acting, while at the same time it strengthens the effect of cytokines that reduce the inflammation (Kozela E, et al 2015).
