The cannabis plant contains many different compounds. Several hundred have been identified up to date. CBD, or cannabidiol, is one of compounds sourced from the cannabis plant. It is typically sourced specifically from the hemp plant, as there are two strains of cannabis; the other being marijuana. While the chemical make-up is similar between the two, cannabidiol (CBD) doesn’t produce a psychoactive effect. This is due to the significantly decreased amount of THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol — the main compound responsible for the psychoactive property in marijuana). In other words, CBD won’t get you “high.” It comes in a variety of forms including oils, lotions, edibles, smokables, and more.
The compounds of cannabinoids work synergistically with the endocannabinoid system, a biological system that contains molecules similar to those found in cannabis. At the present moment, there are no other known nutrients that work with the endocannabinoid system. The CB1 receptor, primarily located in the brain, is designed perfectly to receive tetrahydrocannabinol like a lock and key. In a similar manner, the compounds from cannabidiol work beautifully with the CB2 receptors, found all over the body. By providing the endocannabinoid system with proper nutrients, this system can optimally regulate crucial physiological operations like mood, energy level, blood pressure, stress, metabolism, and more. In doing this, reports of improved physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health have been documented.
