What is CBD?
- The term CBD represents an acronym for Cannabidiol, one of the 113 phytocannabinoids derived from the Cannabis plant species. CBD as a compound is completely devoid of the intoxicating/psychoactive activity, whilst also exhibiting analgesic, anxyolitic, anti-convulsant, anti-inflammatory, antineoplastic and chemopreventive properties.
What is THC?
- The term THC represents an acronym for (−)-trans-Δ⁹-tetrahydrocannabinol, one of the 113 phytocannabinoids derived from the Cannabis plant species. THC is the only psychoactive/intoxicating compound present within the Cannabis plant species, with it being generated as a biological defense mechanism against insect predation, ultraviolet light, and environmental stress. Several studies are showing more evidence that, when used properly, THC has many additional medical benefits such as memory improvement, pain management, nausea reduction, anti-inflammation and muscle control capabilities.
Can CBD get me High?
- No, consuming CBD will not make you high. CBD is actually an antagonist of the CB1 Receptor, meaning it'll actually block or modulate the intoxicating effects of THC. Thus, CBD in strong concentrations produces an uplifting or a relaxing effect, it has no psychoactive value and does not get a consumer intoxicated/high.
Can THC get me High?
- Yes, due to the psychoactive nature of THC, its consumption will make you feel high; depending upon the amount of THC consumed, form in which it is consumed and the time span in which it is consumed. This occurs as THC is an agonist/activator of the CB1 receptor within the human body,which is characterized by increased blood flow to the prefrontal cortex region of the brain. This region of the brain is responsible for decision-making, attention, and other executive functions, like motor skills. In short, THC intoxication can affect any of these functions to varying degrees from person to person.
How does CBD work within my body?
- The effect of Cannabinoids like CBD on the human body can be determined through its interaction with the body’s EndoCannabinoid system (ECS). When a person consumes CBD, it interacts with the ECS receptors throughout the body, particularly the CB1 and CB2 Receptors. These receptors are signaling pathways for pain perception, anxiety, stress, and inflammatory responses. CBD helps to filter the signals sent to the brain, thus minimizing unnecessary pain or inflammation. When it comes to its interaction with the Human brain, CBD has shown to stimulate serotonin pathways in the brain, thereby providing relief for anxiety, depression, and migraine symptoms. CBD also helps regulate the activity of glial cells (which provide support to the Brain’s neurons), bringing them back to a normal level.
