A Brief Glimpse at CBD Research

We often hear about research on CBD research but what information is actually important for you to know? Don’t worry! Here is a small look at CBD research to help give you the basics about how this miracle chemical works.

All cannabinoids act as what is referred to as ligands, which is just a fancy way of saying a molecule that binds to another molecule. Cannabinoid molecules can dock onto the binding site of a protein and have the ability to modulate a receptor’s behavior. Basically, since receptors help in a variety of different ways throughout the body, being able to regulate a receptor’s behavior is kind of big deal. In this case, these receptors are called CB1 and CB2.

CB1 can be found all over the body, but are particularly abundant in areas of the brain, including those concerned with movement, coordination, pain and sensory perception, emotion, memory, cognition, autonomic and endocrine functions. In a nutshell, CB1 helps with the central nervous system.

CB2 receptors are mostly found in the immune system. These receptors seem to mostly help reduce inflammation and a variety of different kinds of pain. Although cannabinoids all have similar structures, they display a wide array of actions at each of the different receptors. That means we’re still tapping into everything that these receptors can help with.

Scientists are finding more and more that CBD has very little effect on CB1 and CB2 receptors, which probably explains why it doesn’t have mind-altering effects. However, THC can cause these kinds of effects along with the ‘high’ feeling that is often associated with marijuana products. That’s why when we say our products are low in THC and high CBD you can rest easy knowing you won’t experience the high feeling or mind-altering effects.
