CBD, also known as Cannabidiol, is a natural compound found in the cannabis plant. CBD is actually a Cannabinoid, which means that it is non-psychoactive and therefore does not produce a “high”, however, it is said to have a number of medicinal properties and could be used as potential treatments covering a variety of psychological and physiological dis-ease conditions.
CBD activates receptors (CB1 & CB2) in our bodies, which bring nutrition to the Endocannabinoid System, which is a group of lipid-based neurotransmitters and receptors that are involved in a variety of physiological processes.
CB1 receptors are essential for a healthy functioning brain and are associated with memory, mood, motor function & pain. Although CB1 receptors are most common in the central nervous system, they are found throughout the body. In other parts of the body, CB1 receptors have roles in pregnancy, hormone production, cardiovascular health & digestion.
CB2 receptors are found in the immune system and assist with inflammation and the immune system’s response to virus’s, bacteria or dis-ease causing organisms.
