Increased Usage of Cannabidiol in the Recent YearsJune 20, 2017 - AutismCancerEpilepsy
Cannabidiol is fast garnering the interest around the world. This cannabinoid component is recognized as having the most beneficial effects for the treatment of various symptoms and health conditions.
CBD is emerging as a powerful supplement with anti-inflammatory property and the ability to help several previously intractable diseases. It can help fight against cancer and neurological diseases, and improve schizophrenia symptoms according to some studies.
This is perhaps one of the reasons why cannabis seeds are getting popular day by day.
The role CBD plays in the brain is an intriguing topic to explore. The brain contains large number of highly specialized cells called neurons. To bridge the gap between neurons, chemicals messengers called neurotransmitters deliver messages by traveling from one neuron to another and attaching onto molecules called receptors.
Brain receptors are not only sensitive to neurotransmitters produced naturally within the brain, like dopamine, but also chemical messengers produced outside the body, such as plant cannabinoids like CBD.
So when you allow cannabinoid compounds to enter your body, it can influence the brain activity by interacting with receptors on neurons. But they don’t interact with all neurons, just the ones that have the appropriate receptors.
CBD has a particularly low potential for binding with the CB1 and CB2 receptors of the human body, and keeps the receptors working at optimal capacity. It helps other cannabinoids to be better absorbed or stops the effects of whatever makes the receptors work less effectively in the body.
