What is CBD?

The hemp plant, domesticated more than 6,000 years ago in China, produces more than 400 organic compounds. The two main groups of molecules with bioactive properties, present in hemp, are terpenes and cannabinoids. CBD belongs to the latter group. Cannabinoids are compounds that influence the human nervous system through the endocannabinoid system. The hemp plant contains dozens of cannabinoids, the most common being THC, CBD, and CBG. These differ in their chemical structures and their effects.

CBD is believed to have many therapeutic applications, and it is also used daily as a nutritional supplement to promote homeostasis. Although CBD is beneficial for general well-being, it does not have the psychoactive properties of its cousin, THC.

What is the difference between CBD and THC?

CBD stands for cannabidiol and THC stands for tetrahydrocannabinol. Both are cannabinoids produced by hemp and cannabis plants. The fundamental difference is that CBD does not produce highs. As a consequence, CBD is legal in most countries, while THC is illegal. Interestingly, CBD has the potential to limit the psychotropic effects of THC, by reducing its ability to bind to cannabinoid CB1 receptors.

How does CBD work?

The human nervous system contains a large number of receptors. Receivers are like cell phone antennas that transmit signals. But, while mobile antennas use electromagnetic waves as signals, receivers use specific molecules to transmit messages.

One of these receptor systems is the endocannabinoid system. Endocannabinoid system receptors are located in the human brain and peripheral nervous system (nerves and spinal cord) among other places. In the brain, receptors are found in regions responsible for perception, concentration, memory, and movement. This is why the endocannabinoid system is involved in the regulation of many physiological processes, such as the sensation of pain, mood, and appetite.

The two predominant receptors in the endocannabinoid system are CB1 and CB2. These receptors bind to molecules made by the body, called endocannabinoids. 2-Arachidonylglycerol (2-AG) is one of the main endocannabinoids that bind to the CB1 and CB2 receptors. CBD, a phytocannabinoid (derived from plants), does not bind to these receptors directly but is able to mimic some of the effects of 2-AG.
