Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of more than a hundred cannabinoids in cannabis and hemp plants. It has been well-documented and proven to contain anti-inflammatory, neuroprotective, and anti-anxiety effects. Since CBD is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid, it won’t make you high.
Cannabis plants contain cannabinoids as it's main chemical compounds. There are at least 113 active cannabinoids identified in cannabis and hemp plants. Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the ONLY cannabinoid that’s known as a psychoactive one. Cannabinoids work by binding to specific receptors in our body's endocannabinoid system (ECS).
The human endocannabinoid system maintains and regulates homeostasis ( which is the body's way of maintaining harmony in response to changes in the environment. E.g: hot and cold temperatures)
At first, research suggested that endocannabinoid receptors only existed in the brain and nerves. However scientists later discovered that endocannabinoid receptors are located throughout the body and support a wide variety of processes. Processes such as memory, mood, pain, metabolism, immune function, appetite, sleep, stress, and reproduction.
No. This is most likely the biggest misconception about CBD. Unlike tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), cannabidiol (CBD) is completely non-psychoactive and will not make you high.
