What is CBD?

Cannabidiol (CBD), is one of the many active substances of cannabis. Cannabis as a plant contains over 400 compounds and cannabidiol is one of the most studied and promising.

Unlike the widely known Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), cannabidiol has no psychotropic activity, making it suitable for use at any time of day. It has many applications and particularly positive effects on a wide range of diseases. As the amount of research studies on cannabidiol increase, we see more of the medicinal potential this natural compound has.

Benefits of CBD

CBD reduces stress

CBD may help instill a sense of calm in people who take it, which may lower stress levels.

While the research on CBD is still emerging, research from 2015 and 2020Trusted Source suggest that CBD may help with symptoms of:

-anxiety

-depression

-panic disorderobsessive

-compulsive disorder (OCD)

-post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)

By dampening the stress response and protecting against chronic stress, CBD may help prevent or treat certain mental health conditions related to stress.

Pain relief & anti-inflammation

Cannabis has been used to treat pain since as far back as 2900 B.C. .

More recently, scientists have discovered that certain components of cannabis, including CBD, are responsible for its pain-relieving effects.

The human body contains a specialized system called the endocannabinoid system, which is involved in regulating a variety of functions, including sleep, appetite, pain sensation, and immune system response.

The body produces endocannabinoids, which are neurotransmitters that bind to cannabinoid receptors in your nervous system.

Studies have shown that CBD may help reduce chronic pain by affecting endocannabinoid receptor activity, reducing inflammation, and interacting with neurotransmitters.

Benefits for heart health

Some research has linked CBD with several benefits for the heart and circulatory system, including the ability to lower high blood pressure.

High blood pressure is linked to higher risks of a number of health conditions, including stroke, heart attack, and metabolic syndrome .

Studies indicate that CBD may be beneficial for people with high blood pressure.

Improves sleep

A brand-new study investigated the effects of CBD and other cannabis compounds on insomnia. Researchers gathered data from more than 400 volunteers using a digital app, which allowed the scientists to analyze the effects of CBD and other cannabinoids in people’s natural sleep environments.

They found CBD significantly reduced insomnia symptoms, and did so more effectively than another popular cannabinoid, THC.

Improves athletic performance

With what we know at this point, CBD offers good potential benefits and few risks. If it improves recovery as a pain reliever, anti-inflammatory, and sleep aid, then it has great potential to improve athletic performance. And if it gets athletes to reduce consumption of NSAIDS, opioids, and prescription sleep aids, those are even bigger victories.

How Cannabidiol (CBD) works

The mechanism of action of cannabinoids, and by extension cannabidiol, is complex. As we mention in the section “What is the Endocannabinoid System (ESR)”, our body is full of cannabinoid receptors.

Imagine these receptors as “locks”. where cannabidiol acts as a key, activating various mechanisms to enhance homeostasis. Because these receptors are found in multiple organs in the human body (in various parts of the nervous system, lungs, liver, bones, thyroid gland, etc.), the applications of this substance are numerous, as opposed to the usual mechanism of action of many pharmaceuticals.
