Cannabis & CBD
What is CBD?
CBD stands for cannabidiol and is one of over 100 proven components of the cannabis plant (cannabinoids). However, this is a very special cannabinoid, which is increasingly becoming the focus of science due to its effect on mental and physical health. Unlike the psychedelic THC (Delta9-Tetrahydrocannabinol), responsible for the general reputation of the plant, CBD has no intoxicating or psychoactive effects. Rather, according to the current state of research, no relevant side effects of the cannabinoid CBD are known – not even in high dosages. The core of the current research is how regular use of CBD could improve your mood and vitality, Treating pain and other physical ailments as well as actively tackling depression and anxiety. Since we are not allowed to make any healing promises ourselves, we let the studies speak for themselves (more).
The human endocannabinoid system.
The endocannabinoid system (abbreviation for endogenous cannabinoid system) is part of the nervous system and has docking points on the cell surface – the CB1 and CB2 receptors. They regulate numerous biological processes:
CB1 is found primarily in the brain and spinal cord, but also in the peripheral nervous system (e.g. in the intestines and many other parts of the body).
CB2, on the other hand, is mainly found on cells of the immune system and on cells that are involved in bone formation and breakdown.
Along with THC, CBD is one of the main cannabinoids in hemp. Its interaction, especially with the CB1 and CB2 receptors, is already being intensively researched worldwide.
What is the function of CBD?
The phytocannabidoids, terpenes and flavonoids are body-like chemical compounds that act on the human and animal endocannabinoid system. The receptors for this are mainly located in the brain. CBD is able to interact with these cells.
According to various research results, CBD can directly or indirectly influence the following:
- Vanilloid Receptors – Pain Regulation
- Adenosine receptors – sleep-wake cycle
- Serotonin Receptors – Mood Stress Management
The term “entourage effect” comes from cannabis research and means that a mixture of plant substances has a higher biological activity than the isolated pure substance itself. The hemp plant has a large number of phytocannabinoids and terpenes, which is what is known as the entourage or synergy effect plays a decisive role. By combining various cannabinoids with terpenes, an optimized effect is achieved, whereby the supply of cannabidiol (CBD) in even moderate doses achieves outstanding health results. This increase in effectiveness can be achieved by preserving certain plant substances, in particular terpenes and other phytocannabinoids.
