Cannabidiol (CBD) is a naturally occurring constituent within the Cannabis sativa plant and is one of over 100 cannabinoids present in cannabis. Unlike the more well known psychoactive cannabinoid tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), it does not have the mind-altering effects as we think of them, although it directly interacts with receptors throughout our tissues and bones using a network of receptors called CB1/CB2 receptors which make up every mammals Endocannbinoid System.
Cannabinoids found in cannabis called phytocannabinoids imitate the cannabinoids found within our own bodies (endocannabinoids) and it’s because of this, phytocannabinoids like CBD fit perfectly into the receptors that make up our Endocannabinoid System; painting a broad picture of why this compound is well known for helping to aid with many ailments. Although discovered in 1992, large-scale studies have been stunted due to the schedule of cannabis as a drug but thankfully small groups of medical and scientific scholars have dedicated their careers to dissecting the compounds that occur naturally within this plant bringing us to where we are today and the wave of interest in the medical benefits of cannabinoids from cannabis without the high.
