By now, most everyone has at least heard of CBD. It’s quickly evolved as a mainstream remedy for just about any type of medical ailment. For those who aren’t fully informed, CBD is the second-most abundant cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant. The most prevalent is THC or Tetrahydrocannabinol, which is the compound responsible for the psychoactive effects. One of the many reasons CBD is so popular is that it doesn’t cause a high or alter brain functionality. Consumers can go about their regular day and activities without impairment. However, CBD still manages to interact with the endocannabinoid system and offer a long list of therapeutic benefits. The endocannabinoid system is a fairly recent discovery. Scientists have figured out that the endocannabinoid system or ECS is made up of receptors throughout the human body that send signals to the brain and influence immune function, reproduction, sleep, mood, pain, memory and more. THC binds directly to these receptors. CBD does not appear to bind to them but seems to prevent endocannabinoids from breaking down. There is increasing research supporting the effectiveness of CBD as a treatment for epilepsy, anxiety, depression, stress, heart condition, the symptoms of PTSD, inflammation, drug addiction, arthritis, insomnia, ALzheimer’s and a long list of issues. However, all CBD is not created equal. There are CBD products created from the hemp plant and CBD produced from the marijuana plant. Full spectrum CBD cultivated from the marijuana plant and combined with the properties of THC provides an entourage effect and maximizes rewards. When the two cannabinoids work in partnership, they influence each other and allow targeting of specific effects.
