Recently, we have all heard about CBD (Cannabidiol) success in the cannabis sector.
But… what CBD is? Do you know about uses and properties of CBD?
Clear up any confusion with this new post.
WHAT CBD IS? INTRODUCTION TO CANNABIDIOL
CBD (Cannabidoil) is one of the main cannabinoids (chemical compounds) that are naturally present in Cannabis (or hemp).
It is obtained from the flowers of the plant and only some strains of Cannabis are rich in CBD, since so far the majority were high in THC, the psychoactive and more popular (since now) cannabis cannabinoid.
CBD doesn’t have any psychoactive effect, that’s means you will not get “high”. According to numerous studies, it stimulates the body’s natural response to pain, anxiety and stress.
There are also studies that recognize that CBD can contrast the adverse effect of THC, like paranoia or lack of short-term memory.
CBD acts with the endocannabinoid system and regulates its functions.
The endocannabinoid system:
It’s a communication system between cells; the endocannabinoid system is responsible of different tasks regulating metabolic processes of the human body.
Cannabinoid receptors (CB1 and CB2) and endocannabinoids forms the Endocannbinoid system, which is essential for the proper functioning of the body.
The endocannabinoid system is not only found in humans, but is also present in other mammals, amphibians, birds and other animals.
