Even though medical marijuana continues to gain acceptance, everyone doesn’t know all the terminology. Some are confused by references to cannabinoids, CBD and THC, and some people aren’t aware of the numerous chances for consumption. A lot of people don’t realize that it isn’t necessary to experience a high. See, Cannabis flowers naturally secrete cannabinoids, which are a chemical compound. The cannabinoids replicate compounds that the body naturally produces already. They bind to particular endocannabinoid receptor sites located throughout the brain and body. The receptor sites in the brain are known as CB1. And those in the body are referred to as CB2. These multiple endocannabinoid receptors manage a broad range of vital biological functions in the body, however, because the CB1 and CB2 receptors are found throughout the brain and body, the benefits of the cannabinoids is nearly limitless. There are over 100 cannabinoids that are found in the stalks, seeds and flowers of cannabis plants. And just recently the synergistic effect of employing multiple cannabinoids in combination has begun to be studied. Doctors are starting to realize that the interaction of cannabinoids offer greater effectiveness with fewer side effects. CBD or Cannabidiol is actually the most abundant of all cannabinoids, and its potential for treating neurological disorders, such as Alzheimer’s disease and multiple sclerosis is nothing short of amazing. CBD is also being used to eliminate seizure activity in people who suffer from refractory epilepsy disorders. Because CBD is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid, people don’t get high from it when using it. So, it’s an ideal choice for children. It’s now being studied in conjunction with THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) to counteract the side effects.
