What are Cannabinoids and Cannabidiol (CBD)?
Cannabinoids are compounds found in the cannabis plant. There are over 100 of them. Different types of cannabis plants have different compounds– for example, hemp and marijuana contain different cannabinoids. CBD is simply one of many, but it’s one that is found to be particularly beneficial for a number of different ailments, without side effects.
The Endocannabinoid System
Understanding how CBD works means understanding the endocannabinoid system. Everyone has an endocannabinoid system; it’s shared by humans, along with mammals, birds, reptiles and fish alike.
Endocannabinoids are fatty substances or oils in microscopic quantities that interact with cannabinoid receptors (membranes in our cells that see signals passed back and forth). Our body manufactures endocannabinoids in order to pass messages concerning bodily functions including pain, inflammation, memory, appetite and mood. Scientists are currently investigating how cannabinoids positively affect these bodily functions.
