Researchers have found more than 80 different cannabinoids existing within the cannabis plant. Cannabinoids are specific compounds produced by the cannabis plant that interact with the endocannabinoid system (ECS) of the body. One of the Cannabinoids is called CBD (cannabidiol) that doesn’t produce psychoactive effects, which is why it is legal in the U.S. and among the more exciting and promising cannabinoids known today.
When CBD is consumed, it binds to the endocannabinoid system receptors. The endocannabinoid system is responsible for regulating a number of different functions including appetite, mood, pain, memory and much more. Cannabinoids bind to receptors of the endocannabinoid system from the cannabis plant, but this system also produces cannabinoids on its own to help modulate immune system response. CBD assist the immune system to protect the body by reducing adverse physical responses such as inflammation, allergies and joint damage. Along with adverse mental responses like anxiety, paranoia and PTSD.
