CBD stands for Cannabidiol
The CBD found in hemp oil is quickly becoming the focus of widespread medical and scientific research. CBD is the single most prominent naturally-occurring cannabinoid component found in industrial hemp plants. Cannabidiol is “a cannabinoid devoid of psychoactive effect,” meaning that you will not become intoxicated if you consume CBD. After THC (Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol), hemp CBD is by far the most studied natural cannabinoid. According to many researchers, CBD may be the single most important cannabinoid ever discovered, and might have great potential when it comes to increasing vitality in both animals and humans.
The Endocannabinoid System – How Hemp CBD Oil Affects the Brain and the Body
The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is one of science’s newest and most exciting areas of study. The ECS regulates a variety of biological processes, like relaxation, eating, sleeping, certain inflammation responses, reproduction and even cognitive function. In a nutshell, your ECS is responsible for making sure your entire body is working optimally. Endocannabinoids and their receptors are found throughout the body. However, while the endocannabinoid system (ECS) performs different tasks, experts believe that the overall function of the ECS is the regulation of homeostasis, or keeping different elements of the human body in equilibrium. It is difficult to succinctly describe a complex system like the ECS, but what’s important to know is that there are two main types of cannabinoid receptors — CB1 and CB2 — on cells throughout the body. They are most abundant in the brain and immune system, respectively. Your body naturally makes its own cannabinoids (endocannabinoids like anandamide and 2-AG) that share a similar chemical structure with plant-based cannabinoids like CBD. Endocannabinoids (and plant-based cannabinoids) link with protein molecule receptors called cannabinoid receptors on the surface of cells. CBD has also been shown to strengthen and improve the efficiency of mitochondria, the “powerhouses” of your cells that are responsible for ensuring cells work the way they should. Research has also shown that cannabinoids are able to target damaged cells while sparing normal cells, meaning that the endocannabinoid system may act as a biological defense system. When a person ingests hemp CBD oil or other cannabinoids, these cannabinoid receptors are activated (CBD appears to have a greater affinity for CB2 receptors than CB1 receptors). Research suggests that when you supplement your ECS with non-toxic, non-habit-forming cannabinoids, like those found in Real Scientific Hemp Oil, you may create a healthier endocannabinoid system and, almost certainly, a healthier you.
