cbd

cannabidiol (cbd) is one of the most prevalent cannabinoids found within the cannabis plant. it is one of over 113 cannabinoids that exists inside the incredible plant. unlike the more famous cannabinoid, tetrahydrocannabinol (thc), cbd is completely non-psychoactive.

 

cbd is so special because it is polypharmacological, meaning that it can affect multiple different pathways in the body at once and helps to promote a healthy, functioning endocanabinoid system.

our cbd edibles are derived from the hemp plant which is the only type of cannabis plant that is state and federally recognized as legal.

how cbd works with our body

cannabinoids

as humans, we have our own endocannabinoid system of cell receptors located throughout our bodies. these cannabinoid receptors, are part of a vast network responsible for a variety of physiological functions including our appetite, pain-sensation, motor control, immune function, reproduction, sleep, bone development, mood, and memory.

a cannabinoid is a class of diverse compounds that acts on these cannabinoid receptors to alter neurotransmitters throughout the brain & body.

endocannabinoid system

some describe the ecs as the greatest neurotransmitter system in the body, as it lends a hand in seemingly just about everything related to our health and well-being.

there are two primary endocannabinoid receptors in this system, called cb1 and cb2. cb1 receptors are found predominantly in the brain and nervous system, as well as in peripheral organs and tissues, and are the main target of one of our endocannabinoids, anandamide, aka the "bliss" molecule. anandamides mirrored phytocannabinoid is the more famous thc.

anandamide

anandamide is responsible for the regulation of appetite, pleasure, pain regulation and sleep patterns. anandamide targets cb1 receptors in order to balance these systems as well as our overall health. cb1 receptors are the target for anandamide as well as cbd.. but in a unique way.

cbd is unique

it doesn’t bind directly to receptors the way anandamide (or thc) does. rather, cbd binds to the surrounding sites on the receptor altering the biding abilities for our naturally made endocannabinoids as well as their breakdown. helping them to stay around longer and work more efficiently.

along with humans, every mammal, bird, reptile, and fish has an endocannabinoid system that naturally produces cannabinoids in the body that are enhanced by cbd.

chocolate also contains compounds that interact with the endocannabinoid system, similarly to cbd. both cocoa compounds and cbd interact with an enzyme known as faah, which is responsible for the breakdown of anandamide in our bodies. by blocking this enzyme, we are allowing the the amount of naturally produced anandamide in the body to increase and stay around longer, assisting in balancing our system to produce its therapeutic effects.
