What is CBD?
CBD short for "Cannabidiol" is one of the naturally found chemical compound of the Industrial Hemp (Cannabis Sativa) plant and is known for its medicinal therapeutic effects on humans and other mammals (including our pets) Endocannabinoid System (ECS) and Serotonin system and many other targets which plays an integral role in regulating our immune system, pain, stress and sleep cycle.
World's leading Cannabinoid Scientists have stated that the Endocannabinoid system is the master regulatory system involved in establishing and maintaining human's and pet's (animals) health. ECS is basically composed of endocannabinoids, which are endogenous lipid-based retrograde neurotransmitters that bind to cannabinoid receptors (CBRs), and cannabinoid receptor proteins that are found throughout the body, and in our Brain, Organs, Connective tissues, Immune cells and Glands. In each tissue, the cannabinoid system performs different tasks, but the goal is always the same to keep human body in balance also known as homeostasis.
Endocannabinoids are naturally produced in our body by our neurological system (Brain). Research scientists have proven that the Cannabidiol (CBD) derived from Industrial Hemp (Cannabis Sativa) plant can be leveraged to manage many symptoms such as chronic pain, anxiety, insomnia, stress etc.
It's not a surprise that cannabis sativa plant has been leveraged to treat several psychiatric and physiological ailments / conditions for millennia. While its a known fact that Cannabidiol (CBD) is not just only found in the cannabis plant. However no other plant naturally produces cannabidiolic acid (CBDA), the precursor of cannabidiol (CBD), than cannabis sativa species. CBD doesn't directly bind with the cannabinoid receptors CB1 & CB2, like its isomer Tetrahydrocannabinoid (THC), however modulates over 65 receptor targets, and is an extremely busy Phytocannabinoid. Hence CBD can be called a promiscuous molecule, due to the its wide range of exerting therapeutic effects throughout our body.
The documented history of cannabis plant and CBD can be traced as far back as 4000 BC. While traditional Chinese pharmacopoeias have documented the medicinal use of cannabis, specifically outlining its effectiveness in the treatment of menstrual cramps, pain, appetite, sleep disorder and malaria. Cannabidiol (CBD) is relatively a newcomer in the cannabinoid science realm, as compared to its isomer THC, since the medicinal interest in this bountiful plant of cannabis sativa didn't spread through Western countries and Western medicine until the early nineteenth century. However don't take this newbie any lighter than THCA, CBGA or any other Phytocannabinoid, as many clinical and pre-clinical studies, findings suggest the therapeutic efficacy of CBD for the treatment of motivational disorders such as, depression, drug addiction, anxiety just to name few.
Medical research scientists across the globe are busy, exploring and validating the true potential of this powerful phytocannabinoid, so it can be leveraged to treat several ailments and conditions. Many labs have even made synthetic CBD, as an alternative to the natural plant based CBD.
