What is CBD?
CBD is also known as cannabidiol, which is the second most abundant cannabinoid molecule produced naturally by the hemp plant. Many cannabinoid compounds are found in the hemp plant, CBD is just one of them.
CBD stimulates the endocannabinoid system, primarily the CB1 and CB2 receptors found in the body: CB1 receptors are largely found in the brain and central nervous system. CB2 receptors are typically found in the immune system.
What is the differemce between CBD and THC?
CBD is non-psychoactive, meaning that CBD does not alter the mind or body but does stimulate activity in both receptors in the endocannabinoid system. THC, on the other hand, binds with our receptors in the brain, which produces sense of euphoria (psychoactive).
What is the Endocannabinoid System?
Endocannabinoid system is a molecular system that your body uses to regulate and perform various critical functions. The endocannabinoid system is tasked to balance a wide variety of physical functions such as mood, appetite, sleep, hormone production, nervous system, and immune responses.
As humans, we have natural cannabinoids that chain throughout our bodies. The main two receptors associated with the endocannabinoid system are the CB1 and CB2 receptors.
CB1 -Central nervous system, found mainly in the brain correlates with coordination and movement, pain, emotions, and mood, thinking, appetite, and memories, among others. THC attaches to these receptors.
CB2 -common in the immune system, affect inflammation and pain.
How does CBD work?
CBD acts as a strong antioxidant and is suspected to have anti-inflammatory, anti-anxiety, and antipsychotic properties that act as an aid for neurological conditions. CBD functions by stimulating both cannabinoid receptors in the body’s endocannabinoid system without binding to them. It works specifically with different receptors in our brain, abdomen, and immune system. In addition, it activates the cannabinoid receptors rather than interacting with them directly. Instead, it seems to influence the body to use more of its own cannabinoids.
What are terpenes?
Terpenes are organic compounds found in a variety of plants and contribute to their flavor, scent, and color. Terpenes are aromatic molecules that evaporate easily and promptly announce themselves to the nose. These substances are the building blocks for essential oils and are often used in food additives, perfumery, and aromatherapy. Some are even thought to have medicinal properties, and to help in fighting bacteria, fungus, and environmental stress. Terpenes interact with cannabinoid receptors they can assist or hinder the effects of cannabinoids.
