What is CBD (Hemp oil)?


CBD, also known as cannabidiol, is a non-psychoactive (it will not make you feel high) compound found in cannabis. It is one of over 60 different compounds present in cannabis. CBD is usually present in cannabis in high concentrations along with THC (the compound in cannabis that is psychoactive and makes you feel high). It is non-psychoactive because of its lack of affinity and attraction for CB1 receptors (the receptors that cause one to experience a cerebral high). There are two types of cannabinol receptors in the human body; CB1 and CB2.Both are naturally found throughout the body but are most common in the brain and immune system, CB1 receptors are responsible for marijuana’s psychoactive effects. These receptors affect memory, mood, sleep, appetite, and pain sensation. CB2 receptors have anti-inflammatory effects and are found in immune cells. CBD does have a great affinity

and or attraction forCB2 receptors making it a great natural anti-inflammatory and immune system enhancer.
