WHAT IS CANNABIDIOL (CBD)?Hempoteca
CBD stands for cannabidiol, the most effective active substance in the cannabinoid group. CBD is the basic cannabinoid of hemp fiber (phytocannabinoid) that acts on our endocannabinoid system.
CBD has no psychotropic properties, unlike THC, and scientific research has shown that it possesses several positive effects and has a significantly broad potential for medical action.
Research says that CBD stimulates the production of endocannabinoids, reduces their breakdown, and relaxes cannabinoid receptors. In this way, CBD strengthens our endocannabinoid system by balancing our bodies.
The endocannabinoid system, named after the plant that led to its discovery, is perhaps the most important physiological system involved in establishing and maintaining human health. Endocannabinoids and their receptors are found throughout the body: in the brain, organs, connective tissues, glands, and immune cells. In each tissue, the cannabinoid system performs different tasks, but the goal is always the same: homeostasis, maintaining a stable internal environment (sleep rhythm, appetite, pain, immunity) despite fluctuations in the external environment.
The endocannabinoid system, with its complex action in our immune and nervous systems and all organs of the body, is a bridge between body and mind. By understanding this system we can see a mechanism that explains how a state of consciousness can promote health or disease.
In addition to regulating our internal and cellular homeostasis, cannabinoids also affect a person’s relationship with the external environment. Viewed from a social perspective, cannabinoid administration changes human behavior, often promoting mutual sharing, humor, and creativity. Through mediation in neurogenesis, neuronal plasticity, and learning, cannabinoids can directly affect a person’s openness and ability to act outside of restrictive patterns of thought and behavior from past situations. Reformatting these old patterns is an essential part of health in our rapidly changing environment.
