CBD is the derivative of the cannabis plant. Of the more than 100 compounds found in cannabis, CBD is the main ingredient of the cannabis plant.
CBD works by entering your system and interacts with SPECIFIC CANNABINOID RECEPTORS that are located throughout your body. These receptors help regulate systems in your body such as mood, appetite, pain sensations, and some cellular level functions.
Cannabinoid substances bind with receptors and have various functions across the body, and each substance reacts on the body’s receptors differently, which is why THC effects are so different from that of CBD. Numerous studies suggest that CBD acts to reduce the intoxicating effects of THC, such as memory impairment and paranoia.
