A Guide to Cannabidiol
Do you know that we all have an Endocannabinoid system? A system responsible for our bodies ability to balance itself. The system is a group of receptors in both the brain and the nervous system in which CBD and other cannabinoids interact with. The Endocannabinoid system has four primary purposes including neuroprotection, stress relief, immune response, and regulating the body’s general state of wellbeing. Homeostasis is the state of steady internal conditions maintained by living things. This dynamic state of equilibrium is the condition of optimal functioning for the organism and includes many variables, such as body temperature and fluid balance, being kept within certain pre-set limits.
A Guide to Cannabidiol – Learn How it Works
CBD oil and products have been gaining tons of popularity recently as users are swearing by the benefits of CBD. CBD benefits include reduced inflammation, lower anxiety, muscle pain relief, improved sleep cycles, and more! You might be asking “how does cannabidiol work”?
How CBD Works?
Cannabidiol, also known as CBD, is one of the most active ingredients found in Hemp. It is not like THC (psychoactive) and does not make you high. Our body consists of an endocannabinoid system that has receptors spread throughout, even your brain. CBD does not activate these receptors like THC meaning that does not cause psychotic effects on the brain.
What are CB1 and CB2 Receptors?
Cannabinoid receptors are responsible for many different processes in the body such as our appetite, memory, regulation of mood, and even the physical sensations that we feel. These receptors are most often activated by natural endocannabinoids that are produced in the body and also by the cannabinoids that are found in cannabis and hemp.
The two main types of Cannabinoid receptors are CB1 and CB2. CB1 is mostly found in our central nervous system, but little traces can also be found in the lungs, liver and the kidneys. CB2, on the other hand, is an essential part of our immune system. CB1 produces and releases neurotransmitters when they are activated by cannabis leading to psychotic effects. CB1 receptors also help maintain the homeostasis of the body and also support in the lipogenesis process in the liver. CB2 is involved in many different functions of the body such as the apoptosis and also in immune suppression. It also modulates the pain that we suffer and plays an essential part in many neurodegenerative diseases.
What are the effects of CBD and how it works?
CBD does not activate the CB1 and CB2 receptors at all (THC does). It activates the adenosine, vanilloid, and, serotonin receptors in the body. CBD activates the TRPV-1 receptor in the body that is responsible for regulating body temperature, the pain perception of a person and also inflammation in the body (CBD mitigates your inflammation). CBD helps suppress the FAAH enzyme that is responsible for regulating the CB1 receptor in the body that helps in eliminating the psychoactive effects. When the adenosine receptor is activated, the body's inflammation decreases. The same receptor is also used to activate the dopamine and glutamate neurotransmitters that are important for the body. The dopamine receptor that CBS activates also helps improve motor control of the body, cognitive function and also in motivation (which we all could use). Glutamate receptors help in better memory, cognition and learning too.
According to many studies, CBD helps activate the 5-HT1A serotonin receptor that has anti-depressant effects on the body. CBD also eliminates the CPR55 signalling that helps in the cancel cell proliferation and also decreases the re-absorption of bone to a great extent.
