ABOUT CBD Oil
CBD is one of over 60 compounds found in cannabis that belong to a class of ingredients called cannabinoids.
CBD is the major nonpsychoactive component of Cannabis sativa. According to a 2013 study published in the British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology, CBD benefits including acting in some experimental models as an anti-inflammatory, anticonvulsant, antioxidant, antiemetic, anxiolytic, and antipsychotic agent and is therefore a potential medicine for the treatment of neuroinflammation epilepsy, oxidative injury, vomiting and nausea, anxiety and schizophrenia.
Research is beginning to show that CBD is different than other well-studied cannabinoids. All cannabinoids act as ligands, meaning they dock onto the binding site of a protein and have the ability to modulate a receptor's behavior. CB1 receptors are widely distributed but are particularly abundant in areas of the brain, including those concerned with movement, coordination, pain and sensory perception, emotion, memory, cognition, autonomic and endocrine functions.
CB2 receptors are found mostly in the immune system, and they seem to reduce inflammation and certain kinds of pain. Although cannabinoids all have similar structures, they display a wide array of actions at each of the different receptors.
However, scientists are finding out that CBD has a very little effect on CB1 and CB2 receptors, which probably explains why it doesn't have mind-altering effects, unlike THC, which positively regulates the CB1 receptor. That's why most marijuana grown for recreational purposes are typically very low in CBD and high in THC.
Among common CBD benefits, natural pain relief tops the list for many. Evidence suggests that cannabinoids may prove useful in pain modulation by inhibiting neuronal transmission in pathways.
