CBD: what you need to know
CBD (cannabidiol) belongs to a family of compounds called cannabinoids. They are unique in that they exist outside of the human body. After consumption, they influence an extensive network of receptors. Read on and find out what CBD is and how it works exactly.
What is CBD?
Cannabidiol (CBD for short) is one of more than a hundred organic compounds from hemp plants. We call this extended family cannabinoids. They work with smaller molecules to help plants produce enzymes and repel pests.
But when people consume CBD and other cannabinoids, something really special happens.
Cannabinoids interact with an extensive network of receptors. We all have this network. Research into the extent of this interaction is still ongoing. It may affect sleep, appetite, mood and a lot more.
CBD interacts with our body in various ways. In addition, it is well tolerated and is non-toxic. Obviously, interest has increased enormously because of this favorable combination.
Where Does CBD Come From?
CBD can be found in almost all Cannabis sativa strains. Nevertheless, hemp contains the highest concentrations.
Hemp is a variety of Cannabis sativa that was domesticated more than 6000 years ago in ancient China. Since then, these plants have been selectively bred for their commercial properties. They are naturally rich in CBD.
As mentioned, CBD isn’t the only cannabinoid. Most of these compounds are non-psychoactive (including CBD). Yet every family has an outsider. In this case this is THC. This is the controversial compound present in cannabis strains.
What is the Difference Between CBD and THC?
You probably heard about THC before CBD. THC stands for tetrahydrocannabinol. It is the main reason that cannabis (a subspecies of Cannabis sativa) is illegal in many places. This is because it induces psychotropic side effects (a high).
Fortunately, not all cannabinoids are created equal. The differences in chemical structure are sometimes small. Still, this is enough to dramatically change the effects.
Due to the differences in the chemical structure of CBD, its physical effect differs from that of THC. Thus, CBD is non-toxic and does not induce a high. According to the World Health Organization, there is no risk of abuse.
How Does CBD Work?
Knowing where CBD comes from is one thing. But what about that important interaction we’re talking about?
The influence that CBD exerts requires a point of contact. This is the endocannabinoid system. The name may sound complicated, but the role is pretty straightforward.
The endocannabinoid system, or ECS, is present in all mammals, including dogs, cats. Some non-mammals, such as goldfish, also have an ECS.
In humans, the role of the ECS is a relatively recent discovery (early 1990s). Therefore, the investigation is still ongoing. Nevertheless, you should not underestimate the importance of such a system.
We now know the following: the ECS functions as a regulatory system. It plays a role in the vital organs, brain, nervous and immune systems.
The task of the ECS is to observe all these systems. It ensures correct functioning and supplies resources where needed. If these systems are not functioning correctly, the ECS will attempt to provide support. It then tries to help the body release biological compounds and enzymes.
CBD acts as the general manager of your endocannabinoid system.
It is not directly involved in its daily functioning. It ensures that your body’s enzymes and chemical compounds get to where they are most needed. However, CBD can lead the way and occasionally interact with receptors associated with the ECS.
What Feelings Does CBD Induce?
Every human’s endocannabinoid system is unique. Thus, the effect of CBD always differs per person. However, if you do a quick online search, you will find hundreds of research papers and many anecdotal testimonials about the wide influence of CBD.
The concentration and dose are also important.
The stronger a CBD oil, or the higher the dose, the more powerful its impact. However, this does not apply to everyone.
Do you want to discover which feeling CBD generates? Just try it for yourself! The compound is non-toxic and does not induce a high. You can easily fit it in, even with a busy lifestyle.
