CBD or cannabidiol is the active ingredient in hemp plants. It has bioactive properties that affect the nervous system from the endogenous cannabinoid system by binding to CB1 or CB2 receptors.
The interaction of CBD with receptors on the endocannabinoid system then produces active stimulation of the human metabolic and physiological processes. In addition to regulating metabolic processes, CBD also regulates the immune system and inflammation.
By interacting with the endocannabinoid system, CBD is responsible for true well-being. However, unlike THC, another active ingredient in cannabis, CBD has no psychotropic effects. In addition, it has no side effects and does not cause cannabinoid poisoning.
What is the effect of cannabidiol?
CBD oil is available as a dropper bottle, capsule, or paste. Concentrations can also vary from product to product and should be selected based on the expected effect. However, cannabidiol is involved in many areas and is suitable for everyone regardless of age, gender or body size. Only the concentration of the active element depends on the need or conditions for treatment.
And it’s not without reason that CBD is known for its antispasmodic, antipsychotic, anticonvulsant, and neuroprotective properties. This is explained by the positive interaction of CBD in the endogenous cannabinoid system.
The active ingredient of cannabidiol acts on cannabinoid receptors by depositing directly on the surface of nerve cells, causing significant physiological changes, especially relieving stress and anxiety. In addition to making the nervous system more resistant, they produce euphoria and well-being without producing high effects.
In addition, CBD provides comfort, relaxation, and muscle relaxation. By reducing pain and promoting sleep, CBD is highly regarded for its anti-inflammatory properties. Thanks to its analgesic effect, it relieves the pain associated with various chronic inflammatory diseases.
CBD stimulates endogenous cannabinoid receptors. This is manifested by modulation of concentration and improvements in general memory and cognitive systems. It has a true activating effect by suppressing the disruption of the endocannabinoid system due to aging, stress and chronic fatigue.
CBD is also involved in more serious conditions, including certain cancers. In fact, cannabidiol has anti-angiogenic properties and helps inhibit the development of cancer cells and the growth of tumors. This property has been well demonstrated and proven in cell cultures and animals. However, for the time being, there is still a lack of objective research on human effects. However, CBD seems to be able to make chemotherapy treatment more effective, for example, for breast cancer cells.
Thanks to its relaxing and antiemetic effects, it also reduces the side effects of chemotherapy such as nausea and pain.
CBD is also known for fighting addiction. This is especially true for people who are dependent on THC and highly effective synthetic cannabinoids. By providing a calming sensation, CBD offers the same health benefits as THC without having the same psychoactive properties. It also plays a role in the treatment of smoking cessation and opioid addiction.
In addition, it should be noted that cannabis plants are the only known natural source of cannabinoids, in addition to the natural equivalents produced by the body. Therefore, consumption of CBD is an alternative that should not be overlooked to optimize nervous system activity.
Be careful, you can find synthetic cannabinoids that have the same effects, but have serious health and brain effects. Therefore, synthetic cannabinoids and natural cannabinoids do not offer the same health benefits at all.
