What is CBD?
In the mid 1990’s, Israeli researcher Dr. Ralph Mechoulam discovered that inside the human body is a system made up of receptors called the Endocannabinoid System (ECS). Dr. Mechoulam found that the main receptors of the ECS, CB1 and CB2, were particularly adept at accepting two of the most prominent cannabinoids found in cannabis, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the principal psychoactive component in cannabis, and cannabidiol (CBD), the principal non-psycho active component in cannabis. He also discovered that CB1 and CB2 receptors aided the body in producing its own endo cannabinoids in a manner similar to the way the body naturally produces endorphins.
The difference between the two main receptors is that the CB1 receptor is found predominantly in the brain and is responsible for modulating pain, while CB2 receptors are mainly found in the immune system and is responsible for fighting inflammation as well as boosting body immunity. Research went on to show that when THC was present in the CB1 receptor, pain levels would decrease. Alternately CB2 receptors responded to CBD and reduce spasms and inflammation in subjects.
Subsequent research went on to show that CBD has a very strong CB2 receptor affinity. It suppresses aggressive spasms by binding on the CB1 receptor to help reduce as well as effectively reducing nausea and vomiting. Some studies have also shown that it has anti-inflammatory properties that can help address systemic inflammatory disorders as well help slow down the rate of many other disorders. Moreover, recent promising laboratory results have established the CBD potential to directly activating NK cells (Fernandez-Ruiz, et al., 2013).
From these notable effects, CBD is now seen as a very good option for many people seeking relief from various ailments – including chronic pain – among others. Recent research also shows promising results as a potential treatment of refractory cases of anxiety and other conditions (Fernandez-Ruiz, et al., 2013).
