How does the CBD works?


Cannabidiol is one of more than 100 naturally occurring chemicals known as Phyto cannabinoids that can be found in the cannabis plant.

Along with THC, CBD is one of the most abundant cannabinoids, representing up to 40% of Phyto cannabinoid content. In fact, cannabis strains are generally identified by their relative composition of THC and CBD. Unlike THC, CBD does not have significant psychoactive effects which historically has occurred in the cultivation of cannabis.

In recent years, the CBD has been driven by its fame by the scientific and medical communities that began to find evidence of its effectiveness for use in the treatment of a variety of different medical conditions, and without psychoactive side effects.

How the CBD works

Although it is similar to THC, there are some key differences in the chemical structure which means that CBD has very different biological properties compared to THC. To understand these differences, it is necessary to understand the signaling systems of the body's receptors.

The human body uses a network of receptors and compounds that bind to the receptors to control various organ systems.

As a result, the body produces its own cannabinoid compounds, called endocannabinoids. These compounds signal through an existing system of receptors called the endocannabinoid system.

For example, THC activates a type of receptor called CB1 that concentrates in the nervous system and produces a "high (high)" psychoactive effect when it is turned on. THC also binds to a receptor called CB2, which plays an important role in the body's immune system.

On the other hand, CBD does not bind directly to CB1 or CB2 receptors but can indirectly affect endogenous cannabinoid receptor signaling by interacting with no less than a dozen different types of receptors, including those in the immune system, the pain signaling system, and the skeletal muscle system.

In summary, the effects of CBD are wide-ranging and different from those of THC. Some of the effects of CBD have been shown to be useful in the treatment of medical conditions, which are discussed in more detail in the next section. For more information about cbd click here to healthworxcbd.
