What is CBD?

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a compound found in cannabis Sativa plants, like the hemp plant. CBD, does not produce a euphoric or “high” feeling, unlike the plant’s cannabinoid THC. It tends to interact with your body’s endocannabinoid system, which can regulate physiological functions such as coordination, mobility, discomfort, appetite, mood and other emotions.

Where Does CBD Come From?

CBD primarily comes from the hemp plant (Cannabis sativa). Hemp is a variety of the cannabis plant that contains high levels of CBD and very low levels of THC, the psychoactive compound responsible for the "high" associated with marijuana. CBD is extracted from the flowers, leaves, and stalks of hemp plants using various methods such as CO2 extraction, ethanol extraction, or solvent extraction. These processes involve separating the CBD and other beneficial compounds from the plant material, resulting in a concentrated CBD extract.

It's important to note that the CBD derived from hemp contains only trace amounts of THC (0.3% or less), which is within the legal limits in many countries. This low THC content ensures that CBD products derived from hemp won't produce psychoactive effects and are legal in many regions. After extraction, the CBD extract can undergo further refinement to remove any impurities or unwanted compounds. It may also be processed into various forms, which are then made available for consumer use.

What is the Endocannabinoid System?

To understand how CBD works, we need to talk about the Endocannabinoid System (ECS). The ECS is a complex cell-signaling system in our bodies that helps regulate various functions like sleep, mood, appetite, immune response, and more. It consists of receptors (CB1 and CB2), endocannabinoids (naturally occurring cannabinoids produced by our bodies), and enzymes.

CBD interacts with two primary types of receptors in the ECS called CB1 and CB2 receptors. CB1 receptors are predominantly found in the brain and central nervous system, while CB2 receptors are mainly present in immune cells and peripheral tissues. CBD does not directly bind to these receptors but instead influences their activity.

Most Popular Uses of CBD

CBD has been studied for its potential discomfort-relieving properties. It may help alleviate aches and provide relief from exercise-induced soreness.

CBD can interact with serotonin receptors in the brain, which may help combat anxious feelings and stress, as well as support mental well-being.

CBD may help support a better night’s rest by combatting anxious feelings, reducing soreness and promoting relaxation.

CBD-infused skincare has gained popularity for its potential benefits for skin due to CBD’s properties and interaction with the skin’s cannabinoid receptors.
