Why CBD Helps Humans

The major cause of the renewed and growing interest in CBD is the huge benefits that various people are deriving from CBD oil and its related products.

Some of these benefits are preventative while others are therapeutic. CBD oil has proven to be a tested cure for many kinds of physical and emotional diseases for many people. Various research studies have corroborated many of these health benefits of CBD oil in its various forms.

However, many people see the effects of the product but don’t really understand the process and why the product is effective in the first place. This article looks at the CBD process and why it helps humans.

The Content of CBD

CBD and THC are the two common phyto-cannabinoids that are found in the industrial hemp plant. The industrial hemp contains certain biomolecules like the flavonoids, the terpenoids and many types of cannabinoids.

The CBD and the THC are the most common phyto-cannabinoids in the industrial hemp because of the therapeutic effects they contain.

The CBD and the THC contain certain elements and components that have been useful for the health and the proper functioning of the body.

This is why, apart from the social benefits of vaping CBD oil, the health benefits have been the most important reason for its popularity and acceptability.

How CBD Works

CBD works together with the endocannabinoid system of the body.

The body has an endocannabinoid system. The reason for the effectiveness of CBD is that it aligns with the endocannabinoid system of the body in contrast to the synthetic drugs. It has chemical and compounds that have similarity with the endocannabinoid system.

CBD has receptors that bond together with other receptors in the body and produce therapeutic effects. The interaction of the CBD receptors with other receptors in the body can be in the form of activation, modulation or deactivation.

CBD interacts with endocannabinoid receptors in the brain, in the organs of the body, tissue, bones and the joint.

These various interactions work to increase the level of endocannabinoid in the system and decrease the level of certain receptors in the body system.

When a CBD containing product is used in or outside the body, the content of the product is absorbed into the body stream and the multifaceted process is set into motion.

CBD is absorbed into the body through the process of hydroxylation to form into its acidic metabolites which is the compound that performs these various functions in the body.

CBD vs THC

CBD and THC are the two common and therapeutic phyto-cannabinoids present in the industrial hemp.

But there is a marked difference in the two compounds. THC contains psychoactive and euphoric content that can cause varying degrees of the “high” feeling; the same feeling in alcohol and cigarettes.

The CBD on the other hand does not contain the psychoactive elements and therefore does not bring the “high” feeling.

This is the reason why CBD has become more popular for therapeutic purposes than THC. CBD is already legal in many states of the United States as a result. The psychoactive effects of THC often eclipse the therapeutic benefits especially when the correct dosage is not used.

CBD in its various forms

CBD can be enjoyed in many different forms. CBD oil is the most popular CBD content. CBD oil can be used together with Juul pods and vape pens and absorbed through the vaping system.

CBD oil can also be in the form of creams, lotions, balm and ointment which are used topically for general health reason or to treat different kinds of diseases.

CBD oil also comes in the form of edibles: supplements and tablets. The supplements can be used together with food while the tablets can be taken like other drugs.

Depending on your preference and particular disease condition, any of the CBD forms can be used beneficially for your general and specific health.

It is also important to look for the best products that have been produced with careful attention to details and quality standards.

CBD and Anxiety, Depression, Insomnia

One of the more common uses of CBD is as a therapy for anxiety, depression and other disease conditions related to them. CBD helps to treat anxiety and depression and the cycle of addictions that result from them. For example, CBD helps with the obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) which is one disease condition that is related to anxiety.

CBD accomplishes this through the activation of the 5-HTIA serotonin receptors. The serotonin receptors are protein receptors that have been identified in anxiety, depression, sleep disorders and nausea.

The 5-HTIA receptors are activated by serotonin which is a neurotransmitter. CBD can help to reduce pain, anxiety and insomnia through its anxiolytic effect on the 5-HTIA receptors.

 

CBD and its anti-inflammation, anti-anxiety features

CBD is well known as an ant inflammation product. In the same vein, it works as an anti-anxiety product.

It does this in its work as a reuptake inhibitor.

CBD increases the level of endocannabinoid in the body system by delaying the reuptake of the anandamide receptor and the adenosine neurotransmitter.

CBD uses the same fatty acid binding protein transport mechanisms as the anandamide and the adenosine. CBD can therefore slow down the movement of the anandamide and the adenosine, inhibits their metabolism and access into the interior of the cell.

The delay of the reuptake of the anandamide increases the endocannabinoid in the body (especially the brain synapses) which comes with a lot of health benefits.

Similarly, the reuptake of the adenosine increases the level of the adenosine in the brain which consequently regulates the adenosine receptor. This regulation help the adenosine receptor to better discharge its anti-inflammatory benefits to the body system.

The reuptake effects of the CBD also help to escort lipids into the cell interior.

Apart from the anti-inflammatory effects of these processes, there is also a reduction in anxiety as well as neuro-protective benefits.

CBD, Bone diseases and Cancer cells

Sufferers from osteoporosis and other bone diseases have found CBD to be very effective.

This effect is achieved through the deactivation of the GPR55 receptor. The GPR55 receptor is also known as the orphan receptor because there is uncertainty on the family of receptors it belongs to.

The GPR55 receptor is also a protein receptor like the 5-HTIA serotonin receptor.

The receptor, which functions mostly in the cerebellum, is responsible for bone reabsorption. But when the rate of bone reabsorption is too high, bone conditions like osteoporosis is the result.

By deactivating the GPR55 receptors, CBD can help to combat various bone conditions like osteoporosis.

In like manner, the overactive GPR55 receptor has also been responsible for various cancer cells. CBD can therefore help to reduce the reproduction of cancer cells in the body.

 

CBD and its anti-proliferative effects

CBD also has anti-proliferative effects. By activating the Peroxisome Proliferator Activated Receptors, CBD can help to regress tumors and fight cancer.

These receptors are located on the surface of the Nucleus. When these receptors are activated by the presence of CBD, there is an anti-proliferative effect. Similarly, the activation of the PPAR receptors helps in the treatment of lung cancer.

It has also been recorded that CBD helps in the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease and can be a great treatment for diabetes.

 

CBD and its antiseptic and analgesic properties

CBD also has a binding with the Vanilloid receptors. The Vanilloid receptors are also known as the TRPV1 receptors.

CBD helps in the activation of the vanilloid receptors. The vanilloid receptors help to mediate pain perception. They have been effective in the treatment of headache and the unclogging of the blood vessels.

These antiseptic and analgesic properties are one of the therapeutic effects of the vanilloid receptors.

CBD can therefore be a great product for pain relief, headache and other heart related diseases.
