What is CBD?
CBD is one of the hundred types of cannabinoids found in cannabis. It is currently widely used in pharmaceutical, cosmetic and food industries.
Cannabinoids are compounds, which not only occur in the plant cannabis, but are also found in breast milk. Among the most important of these are tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), cannabidiol (CBD), cannabinol (CBN), cannabichromene (CBC) and lastly cannabigerol (CBG). The system of their use by living organisms is called the cannabinoid system.
The cannabinoid system has a key influence on a whole range of life functions anywhere from reproduction to food intake. Through this system, the active components of cannabis, or cannabinoids, react with the biological system of your body, which in an important way regulates our physiology, mood, feeling of pain, appetite and takes part in the homeostasis, which is the balance of body functions. This system consists of two main cell receptors CB1 and CB2.
CB1 Receptors are primarily found in the brain, nervous system, connective tissues, genital and other glands and organs, whereas the CB2 receptors are mainly located in the immune system and other peripheral structures. The “keys” to these receptors, which cause various effects in our body, are the cannabinoids which the human body produces itself or which we get into our body in various forms of cannabis use.
