Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of the cannabinoid components (hemp protects you) extracted from the cannabis plant (cannabis).
CBD works smoothly with the endocannabinoid system (ECS) function that we have to maintain balance in the body while being exposed to various stresses that we receive, and it works to help the body heal itself. It is said.
When the function of ECS weakens due to aging, stress, and lifestyle, cannabinoid deficiency occurs, errors occur in various parts of the body, and the function of ECS can be regained by taking CBD.
CBD does not cure a variety of diseases directly, but it does help maintain homeostasis in the body.
The World Health Organization (WHO) has officially announced the usefulness of the cannabidiol (CBD) component, and the Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) has similarly stated that "cannabidiol (CBD) is not banned" from the banned drug designation. We have announced that we will be removing cannabidiol (CBD).
In June 2018, Greenwich Biosciences, a US subsidiary of GW Pharmaceuticals, approved a drug containing cannabidiol (CBD) as the main ingredient for the treatment of epilepsy.
Abbreviation for cannabigerol (CBG), a type of cannabinoid contained in hemp, similar to CBD. The proportion of CBG contained in hemp is usually as low as about 1%, and it is considered to be a highly rare component compared to CBD.
The nature of CBG is basically quite similar to that of CBD, and it is becoming clear that it may have stronger anxiolytic and analgesic effects than CBD.
During the growth stage of hemp, CBG is transformed into other cannabinoids. Therefore, normal mature cannabis contains very little CBG. Breeding is also being carried out with the aim of growing the lower part with a higher CBG content.
Cannabinol CBN, like CBD and CBG, is a type of cannabinoid derived from hemp, and is a rare cannabinoid contained in small amounts in cannabis.
CBN is usually produced when hemp is exposed to oxygen, light, etc. to mature and break down THC.
It is a CBN that various effects have been discovered by research. The most notable of these is its sedative effect. It is said to be highly effective in improving sleep.
The endocannabinoid system is a system that properly regulates the amount of neurotransmitters.
There is a keyhole-like object called a receptor in the body, and the key object is called an endocannabinoid (also called an endogenous cannabinoid). In particular, anandamide and 2-AG are considered to be the major endocannabinoids.
These endocannabinoids are compounds made in our body, made with the help of fatty acids, and work to maintain homeostasis throughout the body.
Homeostasis means that the environment inside the body is kept constant regardless of changes in the environment inside and outside the body. The keyholes for this control are the CB1 and CB2 receptors.
Widely distributed in the central nervous system and brain, often in the hypothalamus, hippocampus, amygdala, cerebellum, etc.
Distributed intracellularly in the skin, immune cells, gastrointestinal tract, peripheral organs, especially the immune system
Regular small doses of plant cannabinoids such as CBD stimulate receptors and enhance end cannabinoids. Also, these will be disassembled in a few seconds.
All of these are collectively called the endocannabinoid system (ECS).
