WHAT IS CBD?
Let's start with a fact - endocannabinoid receptors in our body are a natural thing, and endocannabinoid themselves are a natural thing that exist in our body. But what is CBD?
CBD is the non-psychoactive component of cannabis. CBD is extracted from the same plant as THC, but it works on different receptors within the body. We have CBD receptors (CBD 1 and CBD 2) not just in the brain, but all throughout the body. Cannaboids do have an effect in our brain, but most of all they have an effect on our bodies. They interact with our inflammatory system, our immune system, our appetite, or anxiety regulation and so much more.
This is why everybody is talking about CBD - it's an amazing molecule with so many positive effects and uses that has a chance to change the way we look at health and healing forever. Again - CBD cannot get you high, so it's legal in all 50 states.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF CBD?
As we said before, CBD has some amazing effects.
Have you ever had a cup of coffee? Chances are you have, so you know the excited, almost anxious feeling caffeine gives you. The reason caffeine makes you feel this way is due to adenosine, which is a neurotransmitter in the brain. Caffeine blocks adenosine. This means you get more excited, as adenosine would usually relax you.
If you have a lot of adenosine in your body, that means you're going to feel very calm and relaxed, so caffeine has the effect of energizing you by blocking your adenosine. CBD effects the adenosine receptors in your brain by increasing their activity. You might be thinking - does this mean CBD has the opposite effect of caffeine? The answer is - kind of!
Caffeine consumption has a large effect on your adrenaline levels, which is what gives you the energy. Consuming CBD will seriously slow down the adrenaline, letting your body relax. This doesn't mean you're going to feel super sleepy, it means you're going to benefit from an amazing calming effect. This is why so many people are using CBD - for it's ability to slow down your bodies natural stress response.
Another amazing effect is on our dopamine receptors. Dopamine is our bodies feel good chemical, and CBD naturally increases the bodies utilization of dopamine - this means we're not taking an outside source, we're not taking a drug. We're helping our bodies use what they already have more efficiently by enhancing receptor sensitivity.
