Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of the 113identified chemical compounds called “cannabinoids” found in the Cannabis sativa plant, commonly known as marijuana or hemp. CBD accounts for up to 40% of marijuana’s extract. This cannabinoid has potent medicinal properties and is used for the treatment of mood disorders, movement disorders, cognitive dysfunction, and pain. People who want to reap the full health benefits of CBD can take it via inhalation of marijuana smoke or vapor and as an aerosol spray. In addition, it is available in the form of CBD oil, capsules, or as a liquid solution.
The human body has “cannabinoid receptors” referred to as CB1 and CB2 that play specific roles in a wide array of physiological processes including appetite control, pain perception, memory recall, and mood enhancement. In order for CB1 and CB2 to exert their effects, CBD must activate these receptors first by binding to them.
