What is CBD?
CBD is an acronym for cannabidiol which is one of the major cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. CBD is one of over 100 cannabinoids found in the plant. Global Green CBD oil contains the full cannabis spectrum extract (FECO)
Unlike its cannabinoid cousin, Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) Cannabidiol (CBD) does not produce a psychoactive effect. This is because CBD does not affect the same receptors that THC does. The human body has an endocannabinoid system that receives transmissions signals from cannabinoids in the body. CBD produces many beneficial effects on the human molecular pathway. As a matter of fact, there are more than 65 molecular targets of CBD in the body. A CBD rich product with little THC can convey therapeutic benefits without having a euphoric or dysphoric effect.
What is the endocannabinoid system?
The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a group of endogenous cannabinoid receptors found in the brain of mammals. It is present throughout the central nervous system and peripheral nervous system. The ECS is composed of lipids and many endocannabinoid receptors which regulate many mechanisms within the body. The endocannabinoid system receptors are specifically receptive to cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. Endocannabinoid receptors regulate many bodily functions including: appetite, digestion, immune function, memory, mood, motor control, pain, pleasure and reward, reproduction and fertility, sleep and temperature regulation.
