Cannabidiol is also known as CBD and is a naturally occurring compound in the resinous flower of the cannabis plant. It is a non-addictive substance that has been used for thousands of years. CBD is one phytocannabinoid, which is unique to cannabis and gives the plant a therapeutic profile. CBD is extracted from the hemp plant. CBD can be used to help with: seizures, inflammation, pain, inflammatory bowel disease, nausea, migraines, depression, and anxiety. CBD can be taken sublingually, orally, or applied topically. CBD can also help in managing your dog's anxiety, inflammation, loss of appetite, arthritis, (cancer) pain, and seizures.
THC is the main psychoactive compound in marijuana that gives the high sensation. THC and CBD are both chemically similar to your body's endocannabinoids. This allows them to interact with cannabinoid receptors. This interaction impacts the release of neurotransmitters in your brain. Neurotransmittors are chemicals responsible for relaying messages between cells. CBD can enhance THC's painkilling and anticancer properties, while lessening THC's psychoactivity.
Cannabis terpenes are oils secreted in the resin gland of the plant which produces the cannabinoids THC and CBD. The terpenes interact synergistically to create what is referred to as "entourage effect" that magnifies the therapeutic benefits of the plant's individual components, so that the medicinal impact of the whole plant is greater than the sum of its parts. In addition to those listed to the left, other Terpenes found in Cannabis are Geraniol, Humulene, Ocimene, Terpineol, Terpinolene, and Valencene.
The Endocannabinoid System is a biochemical communication system in the human body and plays a crucial role in regulating our physiology, mood, and everyday experience. Scientists discovered receptors in the brain that respond pharmacologically to cannabis and the endogenous cannabinoid compounds in our bodies that bind to these receptors.
