What is the CBD

Cannabidiol or CBD is a non-psychoactive, non-intoxicating component of the cannabis plant associated with enormous therapeutic potential. Although CBD is still in the early stages of scientific research and clinical trials, there is increasing evidence that CBD offers a range of options to assist with the relief of inflammation, improved recovery, stress, anxiety, and an underlying cause of muscular discomfort and joint pain.

What is CBD Used For?

CBD has a myriad of medical applications in the human body. Its target is the main regulating system of the human body: the Endocannabinoid System (ECS). This is essentially why CBD is able to target so many different pathologies in the body. Rather than targeting a specific organ, it moves through the system which regulates the body, affecting many different aspects of the human body all at once. It is also non-psychoactive making it a viable option to those who are THC sensitive such as elderly and children.

There are two main types of receptors in our Endocannabinoid system: CB1 and CB2

The cannabinoid receptor 1 (CB1) are mostly located in the brain and nervous system as well as in the lungs, liver, and kidneys. Our natural cannabinoids and the cannabinoid THC mainly bind with CB1 due to their similar molecular structure. This may help with pain, nausea and depression.

Cannabinoid Receptor 2 (CB2) receptors are found in the Immune System with a heavy concentration in the spleen and in the Gastrointestinal System. CB2 receptors bind best with Cannabis CBD. It is involved in the regulation of appetite, immune system functions like inflammation and pain management.
