One hefty word that belongs in every CBD believers vocabulary is cannabinoid. Cannabinoids (CBD) is the chemical compounds inside the Hemp plant that have been reported to provide relief to an array of ailments. These (Cannabinoids) work their magic by imitating compounds our bodies naturally produce, called endocannabinoids, which activate to maintain internal stability and health.
To put a complex system simply, they mediate communication between cells, and when there is a deficiency or problem with our endocannabinoid system, unpleasant symptoms and physical complications can occur. When CBD is consumed, cannabinoids bind to receptor sites throughout our brain and body. Different cannabinoids have different effects depending on which receptors they bind to.
This concept is the cornerstone of CBD therapy, and the results are so promising that these cannabinoids have been synthesized for legal prescription use. Some synthetic cannabinoid medications include Marinol, Nabilone, Sativex, and Rimonabant. While these synthetic forms are effective, research shows that herbal CBD can contains a far wider variety of therapeutic compounds and the Hemp plant contains at least 85 types of cannabinoids, many of which have shown great value.
