Cannabinoid (CBD) produced naturally by every healthy human body & regulated by the body’s Endocannabinoid system (ECS), happens to be the primary active ingredient, naturally found in Hemp. CBD is said to provide positive effects on just about everything, including:
- Anxiety and depression
- Bone development
- Immune function
- Pain perception
Hemp, or industrial hemp, is a variety of the Cannabis sativa plant species that is grown specifically for the industrial uses of its derived products.It is one of the fastest growing plants and was one of the first plants to be spun into usable fiber 50,000 years ago.It can be refined into a variety of commercial items, including paper, textiles, clothing, biodegradable plastics, paint, insulation, biofuel, food, and animal feed.
Although cannabis as a drug and industrial hemp both derive from the species Cannabis sativa and contain the psychoactive component tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), they are distinct strains with unique phytochemical compositions and uses.Hemp has lower concentrations of THC and higher concentrations of cannabidiol (CBD), which decreases or eliminates its psychoactive effects. The legality of industrial hemp varies widely between countries. Some governments regulate the concentration of THC and permit only hemp that is bred with an especially low THC content
CBD and the Bliss Molecule
CBD appears to work in two ways. In addition to binding to certain cell receptors to help your body stay in balance, it also prevents the breakdown of a key compound called anandamide, allowing it to build up to higher, more effective levels.
Anandamide is a neurotransmitter produced in the body that is derived from arachidonic acid. Its name comes from the Sanskrit word ananda, which means “happiness, pleasure, joy, and delight.” (That’s how it earned its “bliss molecule” moniker.)
How does CBD unlock the bliss molecule? It works like this: we all have an enzyme known as fatty acid amide hydrolase, or FAAH. Once anandamide enters a cell, FAAH starts to break it down. In other words, FAAH is a big killjoy. The good news is that CBD interferes with FAAH’s ability to break down anandamide, giving our own naturally-produced bliss a longer lifespan.
A study published in Translational Psychiatry found that preventing the breakdown of anandamide in the body improved mood and reversed stress-induced anxiety in rodents. In the study, low levels of anandamide were negatively correlated with stress, anxiety and fear response.
So, while CBD is a safe, non-psychoactive component of cannabis that won’t make you high, it can promote your body’s natural ability to get high on life. Bring on the bliss!
