Cannabinoids, also known as phytocannabinoids, are concentrated in a sticky resin produced in the protruding structures on the surface of the plant known as glandular trichomes. The most studied cannabinoids currently include tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), cannabidiol (CBD), and cannabinol (CBN).
Cannabis plants contain atleast 65 different, naturally occurring, active compounds called Cannabinoids. Cannabinoids, also known as phytocannabinoids, are concentrated in a sticky resin produced in the protruding structures on the surface of the plant known as glandular trichomes. Cannabidiol (CBD) is the most medicinal cannabinoid found in hemp cannabis.
Unlike Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the most well known cannabinoid, CBD does NOT get you "high" like smoking marijuana would. Cannabidiol (CBD) is a non-intoxicating compound, which means it does not cause psychedelic or disorienting effects. Since CBD does not cause intoxication, it is very useful for treating ailments & diseases, without having to worry about feeling dysphoric or lethargic.
The Endocannabinoid System (ECS) is a complex network of cell receptors and the molecules used to transmit messages. These are the most common types of receptors in the human body and they help to regulate normal body functions such as sleep, appetite, mood, motor control, immune function, pleasure, pain, reproduction/fertility, memory, and body temperature. When the ECS is in balance, the body enters a state of homeostasis which is defined as the tendency of organisms to auto-regulate and maintain their internal environment. Most diseases are a result of or cause ECS dysfunction.
