CBD: What Is It?

Dec 13, 2019

CBD, short for cannabidiol, is a chemical compound found in the cannabis plant. A naturally occurring substance, it’s commonly used to help people manage pain, emotions and mood, and appetite, among other conditions. It’s important to know that CBD is different from THC, which is the psychoactive portion of the plant. So when using CBD products, you will not feel sedated or altered in any way.

How CBD Works

All cannabinoids, including CBD, produce effects in the body by attaching to certain receptors. The human body actually produces certain cannabinoids on its own and has two receptors for cannabinoids, called the CB1 receptors and CB2 receptors.

CB1 receptors are present throughout the body, but many are in the brain. The CB1 receptors in the brain deal with coordination and movement, pain, emotions, and mood, thinking, appetite, and memories, and other functions. THC also attaches to these receptors, causing an altered state in many cases.

CB2 receptors are more common in the immune system, and they affect inflammation and pain.
When using CBD products, researchers believe your body is triggered to use more of its own cannabinoids, which can then relieve the symptoms of chronic or acute illnesses or health conditions.
