CBD is a non-psychotropic chemical compound in hemp, that works as the catalyst to turn on the regulatory system of the body called the Endocannabinoid System.
Your body produces it's own cannabinoids similar to CBD and THC, they are called endogenous cannabinoids. Your Endocannabinoid System processes cannabinoids as a master control center to carry out many bodily functions.
CBD works within the Endocannabinoid System (ECS), where recently discovered naturally occurring cannabinoids and cannabinoid receptor sites exist, stretching throughout the entire body.
Your Body's Endocannabinoid System
Science has discovered and named two of the most predominant receptors in the Endocannabinoid System as that of CB1 and CB2 receptors.
CB1 receptors are found mainly in the central and peripheral nervous system, brain, brain stem, connective tissues, gonads, organs and glands. In the brain, they are prolific in the cerebellum, basal ganglia, hippocampus, and the dorsal primary afferent spinal cord regions. CB1 receptors are also found in the peripheral tissues and organs such as the spleen, white blood cells, the endocrine gland and sections of the urinary and gastrointestinal tracts. Because of the predominance of the CB1 receptors in the brain, organs and tissues that give cannabinoids the ability to influence functions such as memory, pain perception, mood, body temperature regulation and motor control.
CB2 receptors regulate the immune system. And CB2 receptors are found in the immune system itself and in the spleen, white blood cells and tonsils. Cannabinoids play a role in the management of cytokine release levels. Cytokines serve as molecular messengers between cells. Proteins that are produced by cells are in fact the cytokines. Cytokines regulate various inflammatory responses such as arthritis. Cytokines interact with cells of the immune system in order to regulate the body's response to invaders, disease and infection. Cytokines serve to regulate normal cellular body processes too. Further scientific studies suggest that CB2 modulation can actively participate in pain reduction.
CBD only affect the CB1 and CB2 receptors indirectly in ways science is still discovering. THC on the other hand is a direct stimulant for CB1 and CB2 receptor sites. Recent discoveries reveal that CBD signals the body's natural Endocannabinoid System into making endogenous cannabinoids in order to activate those receptors, helping the ECS work more abundantly efficient.
CBD does not cause a person to become high, unlike THC. Because CBD does not directly have an attractive force toward the CB1 receptor. So CBD is non-psychoactive is due to its lack of affinity for CB1 receptors. Since CB1 receptors are found in high concentrations in the brain, the CB1 pathways are responsible for the psychoactive effects of THC.
Cannabinoid receptor sites are engaging throughout our entire body. Their optimum performance is imperative for a healthy immune system, brain, other internal organ and nervous system.
We cannot make any medical claims, so we encourage you to research the Endocannabinoid System and CBD or cannabidiol yourself in Google.
