WHAT IS CBD?
CBD or cannabidiol, is one of hundreds of cannabinoids present in cannabis in the form of a molecule that interacts with the endocannabinoid system (or ECS) present in the human body.
Isolated for the first time in 1940 in the laboratories of the University of Illinois from the pool of chemists composed by Roger Adams, Madison Clarke and J.H. Clark, the CBD paved the way for in-depth studies on medical cannabis demonstrating once again to the world the multiple properties of cannabis for therapeutic use.
HOW DOES THE CBD WORK?
CBD mainly interacts with the body's endocannabinoid system, a grouping of millions of cannabinoid receptors present throughout the body, but mainly grouped in the brain and central nervous system.
While CBD is a plant-based phytocannabinoid or cannabinoid, the human body naturally also produces cannabinoids, known as endocannabinoids. Almost all the organs of the body, including the skin and the digestive system, contain cannabinoid receptors. The endocannabinoid system has four main purposes, including: neuroprotection, stress reduction, immune response and regulation of the body's general state of balance, which affects faculties such as appetite, sleep, mood and pain.
Unlike THC, CBD does not interact directly with the two classic cannabinoid receptors (CB1 and CB2). This is why CBD does not cause any psychoactive effects. In fact, CBD inhibits the enzymes that break down endocannabinoids, leading to an increase in cannabinoids produced naturally by the body.
