What is Cannabidiol (CBD)
CBD is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid that comes from hemp and cannabis and is a naturally occurring biochemical compound.
Although it is a cannabinoid, CBD does not directly interact with the two classical cannabinoid receptors (CB1 and CB2). Instead, it affects signaling through CB1 and CB2 receptors indirectly. This partly explains why, in contrast to THC, CBD is non-psychoactive. In addition to its indirect influence on the CB1 and CB2 receptors, CBD can increase levels of the body’s own naturally-produced cannabinoids (known as endocannabinoids) by inhibiting the enzymes that break them down.
CBD has less than .03% THC which is why it’s legal in the U.S. and other qualified countries.
The Study of CBD
The study of cannabis has given us a new understanding of how the human body works. The endocannabinoid system (eCS) was discovered in 1992. It is only called the endocannabinoid system, literally “inner-cannabinoid”, because cannabis was the origin of its discovery. Had it been any other complex and beautiful plant which led to it’s discovery, it would be called something else.
