Cannabinoids work by binding to internal "docking stations" in our bodies called cannabinoid receptors. Those receptors help stimulate those feel good responses. Discovered in 1992, the main cannabinoid molecule is called anandamide, which is translated from the Sanskrit as "bliss molecule."
The cannabinoid system is key in helping the body keep balance. This system ensures our stomach and intestines run well, keeps inflammation down, and modulates pain while helping to maintain our mood in a good place. Studies have shown that CBD can help relieve pain, reduce anxiety and depression. It can also alleviate cancer-related symptoms, reduce acne, have neuroprotective properties, benefit heart health and ca have an antipsychotic effects.
Supplemental CBD oil comes from the hemp plant. Hemp is a cannabis plant and is a close cousin of marijuana. However, CBD from hemp has practically no tetra-hydro-cannabinoids (THC). THC is the substance in marijuana that has psychoactive effects and can give you a high. In fact, a number of studies on
CBD show that CBD itself can counter the negative effects of THC–including appetite issues, weight gain and paranoia.
