Better known as CBD, it is one of over 100 chemical compounds known as
cannabinoids found in the cannabis or marijuana plant, Cannabis sativa.
Introducing CBD to the body can help reduce the symptoms of a wide range of
illnesses including epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, chronic inflammation, depssion,
diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, anxiety and opioid withdrawl.
Lower blood pressure
Lower intestinal inflammation
Reduce fear and paranoia
Help with alcohol and nicotine addiction
Reduce chronic pain
Your body naturally has CB1 and CB2 receptors which are located throughout the
human body. Studies show that CBD acts modified to the CB1 and CB2 receptors
which in-return helps with the CB1 and CB2 recptors to fight off inflammation.
CBD, CBN and THC fit like a lock and key into existing receptors. These receptors are part of the endo-cannabinoid system which impact physiological processes affecting pain modulation, and appetite plus anti-inf;ammatory effects and other immune system responses. The endocannabinoid system comprises two types of receptors. CB1 and CB2, which serve distinct functions in animal health and well-being.
The cannabinoid receptors are G protein-coupled receptors that are activated by endocannabinoids or exogenous agonists such as tetrahydrocannabinol. CBD does not directly fit CB1 or CB2 receptors but has powerful indirect effects still being studies.
Brain cells (neurons) communicate with each other by sending chemical messages. The chemicals (neurotransmitters) cross a gap between beighboring neurons before attaching to their specific receptors.
The neuron sending a message by releasing a chemical when signaled to do so
The neuron receiving the message when its receptors are activated by specific chemicals (neurotransmitters)
The chemical messengers that travel from one brain cell to another
Activated by neurotransmitters, receptors trigger a set of events that allows a message to be passed along to other neurons
Natural chemicals (anadamide and 2-AG) that bind to cannabinoid receptors in the brain and the body
The main active ingredient in marijuana: THC, also a cannabinoid, inteferes with the normal
functioning of the endocannabinoid system.
