What is CBD?

CBD stands for cannabidiol. It is the second most prevalent of the active ingredients of cannabis and derived directly from the hemp plant, which is a cousin of the marijuana plant. While CBD is a component of marijuana (one of hundreds), by itself it does not cause a “high.”

How Does CBD work?

CBD stimulates the endocannabinoid system (ECS) to produce its own cannabinoids. In addition, it slows their breakdown by inhibiting the FAAH enzyme, so the endocannabinoids can stay in your body for longer. CBD operates on 60 different molecular pathways, affecting serotonin receptors, immune system, vanilloid receptors, and more.  Researchers believe the various mechanisms of actions creates a synergistic effect that influences the body's use of endocannabinoids, promoting homeostatis (stability, balance, or equilibrium within the body).

CB1 Receptors are primarily found in the brain and nervous system.

CB2 Receptors are mostly found in the peripheral organs especially the immune system.

CBD Health Benefits?

CBD has the strongest scientific evidence is for its effectiveness in treating some of the cruelest childhood epilepsy syndromes, in numerous studies, CBD was able to reduce the number of seizures, and in some cases it was able to stop them altogether.

CBD is commonly used to address anxiety, and for patients who suffer through the misery of insomnia, studies suggest that CBD may help with both falling asleep and staying asleep.


CBD may offer an option for treating two different types of chronic pain.
