CBD (Cannabidiol) & Your Physiology
General Overview: CBD (Cannabidiol) is 1 of the 100+ cannabinoids currently known to be present in mature hemp plants. Known for its anti-inflammatory properties, it has been discovered that CBD works with the human physiology to create a state of homeostasis throughout all bodily systems.
CBD mainly interacts with the CB1 receptor within the endocannabinoid system, which is present throughout the entire body/ closely connected with the nervous system & Immune system.
Cannabinoids: CBG vs CBD
CBG (The Mother Cannabinoid) is the first cannabinoid to be present throughout the life cycle of hemp. All other cannabinoids and terpenes branch off CBG as the plant matures. Through selective cross breeding, there are now strains of hemp with high CBG and 0 THC genetics. CBG is known mainly for its anxiety calming properties as well as its anti-nausea & anti-inflammation.
Cannabinoids: THC vs CBD
Both Cannabinoids are similar in physiological stand-point yet totally different psychologically. At quick glance, the chemical structures CBD and THC seem to be exactly the same yet there are slight differences. That being CBD is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid unlike THC since it is not known to interact with the CB2 receptors within the brain.
