Improve Therapy With Hemp Flower
Full-spectrum products are formulated with a CBD extract that has the same cannabinoid profile as the hemp biomass from which it came. Sunny Skies CBD uses only hemp biomass that is high in CBD, rich in minor cannabinoids, and below the legal threshold of 0.3% THC.
- This is due to CB1 activation and its ability to induce heightened anandamide and 2-arachidonoylglycerol synthesis produced naturally in the body’s ECS.
- Phytocannabinoids from the cannabis plant has become a major topic of research in recent decades due to the therapeutic effects they produce.
- In fact, some studies have shown that CBD may even reduce or soften some of the psychoactive effects of THC.
- The hemp strain of cannabis contains high levels of CBD and low levels of THC, which makes hemp ideal for those seeking the therapeutic effects of cannabis, without the “high” associated with recreational marijuana.
How Does Cbd Actually Effect Your Body?
Endocannabinoids mediate their effects primarily through interactions with receptors, both cannabinoid and non-cannabinoid receptors. Cannabinoid receptors are 7-transmembrane-domain G protein-coupled receptors.
It is worth noting that the consequences of the mechanism between CBD and the endocannabinoid are not completely clear. Researchers believe that instead of directly binding with the receptors, the CBD will stimulate it by proxy. It is clear, though, that this interaction is responsible for myriad positive psychological and physiological effects.
For instance, no one knows the most effective dose of CBD when it comes to medicinal applications. Researchers have yet to parse out whether there are other potential benefits, though. The lack of clarity is most evident in the fact that people do not know the complete mechanisms behind CBD’s interaction with CB1 and CB2 receptors in the endocannabinoid system. Experts have also found that CBD has antihyperalgesic effects, which means that it can reduce sensitivity to pain. CBD targets the TRPV1 receptorsand desensitizes these receptors to pain signals.
Sunny Skies CBD’s Full-Spectrum Tinctures are under 0.3% THC and legal in all 50 states. Cannabidiol, or CBD, is one of 113 known cannabinoids in the cannabis plant.
CBD also appears to exert its effects through receptor-independent mechanisms. Interactions between phytocannabinoids and intracellular enzymes can inhibit enzymatic breakdown of endocannabinoids, thus increasing their signaling.
Unlike AEA, 2-AG and delta-9-THC, CBD does not act as a direct agonist of cannabinoid receptors. These receptors are noticeably absent in the cardiac and respiratory centers of the brainstem, which is why cannabis does not depress respiration or stop the heart from beating. Respiratory depression, mediated by opioid receptors, is the most common cause of opioid overdose mortality; this is not a risk with phytocannabinoids.
This discovery has opened the door to understanding how the endocannabinoid system regulates and affects every major part of the body. Due to its interaction with the endocannabinoid system to help support the body’s effort to maintain homeostasis, CBD is very popular among people with no health concerns seeking to optimize health.
