what is cbd?

Cannabidiol is a phytocannabinoid discovered is 1940, it is one of over 80 compounds found in cannabis. The diffference between THC and CBD is that THC is the psychoactive compound found in cannabis that causes a "high" effect, Cannabidiol, most commonly known as CBD is a non-intoxicating compound. Scientific research today shows that CBD can be an effective form of holistic treatment for a wide range of ailments, conditions and diseases, without the high.

CBD releases its therapeutic impact through many molecular pathways throughout the body. The Endocannabinoid System is a biochemical system that greatly influences our overall physiology, mood and everyday life experiences. This system consists of receptors in the brain, central nervous system and body, called CB1 and CB2 receptors. Not only do we have receptors for cannabinoids we also naturally produce our own cannabinoids within our bodies, called endocannabinoids. Cannabinoids activate these receptors to help modulate and repair many physiological systems in the brain and body. 

 

Basically, the ECS is the human body’s very own “internal” cannabis system. It includes a network of neurotransmitters, receptors and our own endogenous cannabinoids.. These compounds work together with cell and tissue types all throughout the body to help mediate, regulate, and control things like inflammation, pain and immune response systems, neurogenesis (new cell production), apoptosis (programmed cell death), and even psychological behavior and response.

 

 CBD also activates other receptors such as Serotonin (biological and neurological processes), Vanilloid (pain perception) and Adenosine (bone re-absorption). These receptors help the body produce dopamine and help regulate mood, memory and pain perception. These receptors also produce glutamate, which helps the brain receive, process and transmit information. Cannabinoids and the endocannabinoid systems primary action is to bring homeostasis to all systems in our physiology. 

 With pre-clinicial and some human trials CBD has shown to be a therapeutic aid in conditions such as:

  • Cancer 

  • Parkinsons disease

  • Psoriasis 

  • Epileptic seizure

  • Opioid dependency

  • Crohn's Disease

  • Alzheimers 

  • Diabetes

  • Chronic Pain/Inflammation

  • Depression 

  • Anxiety

  • Multiple Sclerosis 

  • Anorexia

  • Asthma

  • Huntingtons disease 

  • PTSD

  • Alcoholism

  • Osteoporosis

  • Arthritis

  • Nausea

  • Schizophrenia 

Like THC, research has found that CBD has a variety of benefits. From daily use, to use for specific conditions, it’s becoming evident that CBD has increasingly profound medical potential with very few (if any) side effects, CBD is becoming an integral part of the cannabis community.
