We hear about the positive results of cannabidiol on TV, radio and internet, but very few people actually realize the complex and interesting process needed to create the unique effects.
The CBD molecule doesn’t produce the psychoactive reactions associated with THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), another of the molecules that can be found in cannabis responsible for the “high” effect.
CBD is obtained from the hemp plant, one of the cannabis varieties, rich in cannabidiol and with a small content of THC, our product is rich in terpenes and flavonoids, making it a full spectrum hemp extract.
The mechanisms of action associated with CBD are still being studied and do date multiple molecular pathways have been discovered. Bellow are some of those:
Serotonin is a hormone and neurotransmitter usually associated with happiness, even though it’s biological function is more complex and participates in tasks like cognition, learning, memory, etc. One of the serotonin receptors scientifically known as 5-HT1A (hydroxytryptamine) is activated directly by CBD at high concentrations, can be found in the central and peripheral nervous systems, 5-HT receptors prompt various cascades of chemical messages inside the cell to produce either an excitatory or inhibitory response, depending on the chemical context of the message, contributing in this way to a broad spectrum of biological and neurological benign effects, including anxiety, appetite, sleep, pain perception, nausea and vomiting.
