What is CBD?

Known by the abbreviation CBD, Cannabidiol is among the most common chemical compounds (called “cannabinoids”) in the much-loved cannabis plant. While other cannabinoids like the better-known THC offer psychoactive effects, CBD does not. In other words, CBD provides relaxation and a variety of health benefits, but it doesn’t get you “high”.

Cannabinoids like CBD deliver their effects by binding to special receptors in your body known fittingly as cannabinoid receptors. While they’re densest throughout the central nervous system, these receptors can be found in virtually every part of the body. This network of receptors is called your endocannabinoid system (ECS). The ECS is involved in a vast range of functions in your body, such as pain perception, mood, immune function, motor control, memory, appetite, sleep, bone development, and even reproduction. When CBD finds its way to your various receptors, it benefits the corresponding function.

 

Health Benefits

Because of its ability to interact with so many systems of the body, CBD is known for delivering complex, far-reaching benefits. Perhaps the best known are its calming and pain relieving effects, but studies have shown that CBD can also be a powerful tool in the treatment of major issues like epilepsy, schizophrenia, cancer, anxiety, diabetes, lupus, Parkinson’s Disease, OCD, osteoporosis, motor disorders, and substance abuse, among others.
