The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a group of endogenous cannabinoid receptors located in the mammalian brain and throughout the central and peripheral nervous systems, consisting of neuromodulatory lipids and their receptors.
There are two main types of receptors in the ECS, CB1, and CB2. CB1 receptors are primarily located in the central nervous system and brains of mammals, and CB2 are generally found in the peripheral nervous system. There are two main cannabinoids mammals produce- 2AG and Anandamide (named after the Sanskrit term “Ananda” which translates to “bliss”).
For hundreds of millions of years every vertebrate on Earth has been equipped with this ECS, a crucial system in the body, and it has been known about in the scientific and medical communities since the 1980’s. However, it’s still not taught about in most medical schools.
CBD oil is not psychoactive and does not affect or influence your mind, your thoughts, or your behavior negatively. CBD products must contain less than 0.3% THC, which is the Hemp Industries Association (HIA) threshold for all finished hemp products.
Unlike THC, CBD does not produce the psychoactive effect that is commonly associated with marijuana, they are distinctly different substances. THC is the molecule that binds to the receptors in the brain and is the one responsible for the psychoactive effects of marijuana.
CBD is antagonistic to the marijuana high; it actually prevents THC molecules from binding to the brain’s receptors. CBD has not demonstrated toxicity in the body (meaning it cannot make you “intoxicated” or “high”), however it is highly reactive with the body’s endocannabinoid system.
