Frequently asked questions
What is CBD?
CBD is short for cannabidiol. Cannabidiol is an extract from hemp, a commonly used term for strains of the cannabis sativa plant with very low levels of THC. Today, hemp is used in a wide range of products in the United States and globally.
Is CBD legal?
Thanks to the passing of the 2018 Farm Bill, zero THC CBD is completely legal in all 50 states. But CBD is currently unregulated by the FDA.
How does CBD work?
Cannabidiol (CBD), is a non-intoxicating component of the cannabis plant. It is a non-psychoactive compound, which means that people do not feel ‘high’ after using it. The resulting compound is what goes on to influence the endocannabinoid system with a myriad of benefits.
What is CBD believed to do?
It’s believed that CBD may be able to help lessen the side effects people may feel with a wide variety of health problems some of which according to recent studies, can include:
- Chronic pain
- Drug addiction and withdrawal
- High blood pressure
- Menstrual cramps
- Muscle spasms
- Nerve pain
- Parkinson’s disease
Scientists are still in the very early stages of studying it at a clinical level.
This doesn’t mean CBD isnt what everyone says. It just means that a little more clinical research needs to be done to make those arguments 100% backed by research.
What is the Endocannabinoid System?
The endocannabinoid system is a complex biological system in the human body. Medical researchers discovered it in the 1990s, but much is still unknown about how it works and its interactions. Today, experts know that it impacts several major processes, including appetite, sleep, mood, and memory, but there is much more yet to be discovered.
The endocannabinoid system has three components: receptors, enzymes, and endocannabinoids. These parts function regardless of whether someone uses CBD or not.
Here is an overview of each component:
Receptors exist throughout the body and are a substance to which endocannabinoids bind;
Enzymes appear in many forms, but only two types of enzymes break down endocannabinoids; and Endocannabinoids complement the body by keeping internal functions running smoothly. Understanding the effects of CBD involves examining the relationship between the receptors and endocannabinoids.
There are two types of receptors: CB1 and CB2. CB1 receptors are primarily in the central nervous system and are responsible for governing coordination, movement, pain, appetite, memory, mood, and other functions. The CB2 receptors are in the peripheral nervous system, influencing pain, and inflammation.
After the enzymes break down the cannabinoids, the endocannabinoids look to bind with receptors. Researchers believe that CBD does not directly attach itself to the receptor but influences it in some way. Activating these receptors is what allows for many of the health benefits that people associate with the compound.
CBD can also influence non-cannabinoid receptors. According to Teaera Roland of Lotus Health, CBD modulates the 5ht serotonin receptor, which can treat psychotic disorders. It can also affect the TRPV1 receptor, which is responsible for pain and inflammation.
