How It Works

Cannabidiol is a non-intoxicating phytocannabinoid (plant produced cannabinoid) found in cannabis, which doesn’t produce the ‘high’ associated with THC. Remember when we said that you have cannabis receptors throughout your whole body, including your digestive track, spleen, liver, stomach and nervous system? Well, CBD is one of many cannabinoids quickly stealing popularity away from THC, because it doesn’t bind to CB1 receptors, which means you don’t get ‘high’. Instead, CBD binds to CB2 receptors in your body, making it ideal for anti-inflammatory and therapeutic applications. Most notably, CBD has been proven to help with Parkinson’s Disease, Multiple Sclerosis and other auto-immune diseases. Plus, there’s no scientific evidence that it is addictive. It can be made with Hemp which has an inactive amount of THC or Cannabis which will always have some amount of measurable THC.

Dig deeper:

Cannabidiol interacts naturally with our ECS as a partial agonist to CB1 and CB2 receptors, by stimulating serotonergic receptors. Hemp, or Cannabis sativa, is seen with higher CBD numbers than Cannabis indica and has been shown to have numerous, additional medicinal benefits. This, of course, isn’t to say that CBD can’t be found in a THC-high chemovar, but THC:CBD ratios are quickly becoming a popular topic, compared to just THC content, given the additional benefits CBD can offer users.

CBD has the capacity to be used effectively for:

• Pain relief
• Anti-inflammation
• Anxiolytic (anti-anxiety) and
• Anticonvulsant effects
