What is the CBD?
CBD or cannabidiol is one of the more than a hundred molecules belonging to the family of cannabinoids produced by the Cannabis Sativa L. plant, and which in recent years is revolutionizing the scientific landscape due to its therapeutic properties.
Last November, the World Health Organization (WHO) recognized that cannabidiol is not addictive or psychoactive: "The WHO, organ of the United Nations, determined that cannabidiol (CBD), a non-psychoactive molecule of the plant Cannabis sativa is not a dangerous substance, on the contrary, it has a high therapeutic potential ».
What is the endocannabinoid system?
These chemical compounds or molecules mentioned above as cannabinoids, interact with our organism thanks to the endocannabinoid system that the human body possesses. This system consists of a series of natural receptors (CB1 and CB2), located mainly in the brain, the spinal cord and the peripheral nervous system. These receptors interact with cannabinoids activating and stimulating the body's natural response to pain, anxiety, stress, etc. The key role of the endocannabinoid system is thus to maintain or restore homeostasis, a healthy balance of various bodily functions. Cannabinoids of plant origin such as cannabidiol (CBD) can support the positive effect of this natural process of the human body to balance and maintain the main functions of our organism.
