What is CBD and what are its benefits?

In recent years, the CBD market has made an important quantitative and qualitative leap. As studies confirm its beneficial effects on health, the demand for products such as those offered by Phexia, based on this safe and natural component, is increasing. However, a large part of society is still unaware of what CBD is and what advantages it offers the consumer. We tell you about it.

What is CBD

CBD, or cannabidiol, is a compound found in the Cannabis sativa plant. Traditionally, this fact has caused mistrust, as it has been linked to the psychoactive effects of another compound present in the same plant, THC. This suspicion, in reality, is based on incorrect information.

CBD has therapeutic attributes that benefit the health of those who consume it, but it is not intoxicating to the human body like THC. Why is this the case? One and the other act differently on the receptors of our body and brain.

To understand what CBD is, we have to talk about the endocannabinoid system (ECS), which exists in the human body and functions as a balancing system, acting as a regulator of physiological activity.

How CBD is extracted from the plant

It is a very simple procedure, with a long tradition behind it. There are several methods that ensure that we achieve an effective, safe and suitable product for consumption. Two of the most efficient and natural are these:

- Using vegetable oil. An oil base is mixed with the plant, which activates the cannabinoids. Subsequently, the combination is heated, which causes the latter to activate and pass into the oil used. 

- From carbon dioxide. This method requires a more complex operation than the previous one. In the process, different temperatures are applied to the plant depending on the peculiarities we wish to obtain from it. 

In which products is CBD present?

The efficacy of CBD is supported by several studies, which have positioned it in the market as a solid therapeutic alternative. We detail you some of the products in which it is present today:


CBD oils: In Phexia, you have up to six different percentages of concentration. Their medical advisors recommend that you start with oils with a low concentration, 5% or 10%, and modify it according to your needs. 

Cosmetics: Cannabidiol is an important antioxidant. Phexia has cosmetic solutions that incorporate CBD and melatonin, which significantly increases the benefits on the skin. 

CBD cream: The properties of CBD are many and users of CBD-based creams are well aware of this. Simply apply the cream on the affected areas and you will immediately feel the relief you need.

The main health benefits of CBD

Society demands products that are natural and do not have a negative impact on the environment. CBD can boast of being a 100% safe and sustainable substance. But not only that, the properties of CBD are especially beneficial for the well-being of the consumer, as we explain below... 

CBD has an anti-inflammatory effect

The interaction of cannabinoids with the Endocannabinoid System reduces inflammations in the human body and the pain. The potential of CBD to reduce chronic inflammation and pain was already highlighted in 2012, in a study developed by the scientific publication Journal of Experimental Medicine.  

CBD improves sleep

According to data from the Spanish Society of Neurology, more than four million Spaniards manifest a serious or chronic sleep disorder that prevents them from sleeping well. CBD is a magnificent natural remedy to achieve the hours of rest that our body needs. 

CBD reduces anxiety

We live in a society that demands us to be always alert and that usually leads us to stressful situations that are difficult to control.
