How Does CBD Interact with the ECS
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a major cannabinoid found in cannabis, besides tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Unlike THC, CBD does not give you that “high” feeling and typically does not cause any negative effects. The non-psychoactive properties of CBD have made it ideal for therapeutic use.
Research has found that CBD does not bind to CB1 or CB2 receptors in the same way that THC does, but it does help prevent endocannabinoids from being broken down. This allows them to have more of an effect on your body.
While research is constantly being conducted, many have found that CBD can help with pain, nausea, and other symptoms associated with multiple conditions.
