Receptors

Although medical marijuana continues to gain acceptance around the world, all people are not really familiar with the terminology. They are confused by references to cannabinoids, CBD and THC, and they aren’t aware of the several options for consumption. A lot of people still don’t realize that it isn’t necessary to experience a high. Cannabis flowers naturally secrete cannabinoids, which are a chemical compound. The cannabinoids replicate compounds that the body already naturally produces. They bind to certain endocannabinoid receptor sites that are located throughout the brain and body. The receptor sites in the brain are known as CB1, while those in the body are referred to as CB2. These endocannabinoid receptors manage a broad range of vital biological functions, but because the CB1 and CB2 receptors are throughout the brain and body, the benefits of cannabinoids is nearly limitless. There are over 100 cannabinoids in the stalks, seeds and flowers of cannabis plants.  Just recently the synergistic effect of using many cannabinoids in combination has begun to be studied, and we are starting to realize that the interaction of differing types of cannabinoids offers greater effectiveness with fewer side effects. CBD or Cannabidiol is undoubtedly the most abundant of all cannabinoids, and its potential in treating neurological disorders, such as Alzheimer’s disease and sclerosis is nothing short of amazing. Also CBD is being used to reduce and even eliminate seizure activity in people who suffer from certain refractory epilepsy disorders. Because CBD is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid, people never get high from it. It’s ideal for children, and it is now being studied in conjunction with THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) to counteract any side effects.
