How CBD oil works?
Intro to CBD
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a naturally occurring compound found in the resinous flower of cannabis, a plant with a rich history as a medicine going back thousands of years. Today, CBD are being tested and confirmed by scientists and doctors around the world. A safe, non-addictive substance, CBD is one of more than a hundred “Phyto cannabinoids,” which are unique to cannabis and endow the plant with its robust profile.
CBD is closely related to another important medicinally active Phyto cannabinoid: tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the compound that causes the high that cannabis is famous for. These are the two components of cannabis that have been most studied by scientists.
Both CBD and THC have significant attributes. But unlike THC, CBD does not make a person feel “stoned” or intoxicated. That’s because CBD and THC act in different ways on different receptors in the brain and body.
CBD can actually lessen or neutralize the psychoactive effects of THC, depending on how much of each compound is consumed. Many people want the health benefits of cannabis without the high – or with less of a high. The fact that CBD is effective as well as non-intoxicating, and easy to take as a CBD oil, makes it an appealing option for those who are cautious about trying cannabis for the first time.
What is the Endocannabinoid System?
Cannabis has been at the centre of one of the most exciting—and underreported—developments in modern science. Research on marijuana’s effects led directly to the discovery of a hitherto unknown biochemical communication system in the human body, the Endocannabinoid System, which plays a crucial role in regulating our physiology, mood, and everyday experience.
The discovery of receptors in the brain that respond pharmacologically to cannabis—and the subsequent identification of endogenous cannabinoid compounds in our own bodies that bind to these receptors—has significantly advanced our understanding of human biology, health, and disease.
It is an established scientific fact that cannabinoids and other components of cannabis can modulate many physiological systems in the human brain and body. Cannabinoids are chemical compounds that trigger cannabinoid (and other) receptors. More than 100 cannabinoids have been identified in the marijuana plant. Of these marijuana molecules, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD) have been studied most extensively. In addition to cannabinoids produced by the plant, there are endogenous cannabinoids (such as anandamide and 2AG) that occur naturally in the mammalian brain and body, as well as synthetic cannabinoids.
How CBD actually works?
The cannabis plant is made up of more than 100 cannabinoids. You may notice a link in the words here – endocannabinoids in your bodies system, cannabinoids in the cannabis plant.
We are going to focus on two main cannabinoids from the cannabis plant that you may be familiar with – THC and CBD. THC is what you would have if you tried weed or a hash brownie – this will make you feel different. The reason why it is making you feel different is THC is binding to your endocannabinoids receptors and telling your body to feel different. It may make you feel hungry, relaxed, happy, sick, dizzy or high.
This is where CBD comes in. It is thought that CBD is doing the same thing as THC. It is binding to your receptors, just as THC is, but without the negative side effects or intoxication. It does not get you high.
