CB cannabinoids are very powerful and will interact with certain receptors in the Endocannabinoid System in the body (ESC). The cannabinoids will bind to CB1 and CB2 receptors and fit the receptor like a lock and key. When they bind they cause a communication response within the body prompting the neurons to act in a way that allows the body to correct what is wrong. Our bodies produced cannabinoids naturally at a certain stage of our lives then stopped. So, we know the cannabis plant (Hemp) has cannabinoids that will bind to our receptors as well and those cannabinoids are called Phytocannabinoids. These cannabinoids are for all intense purposes non-psychoactive. They can act as a powerful supplement to our ECS system. The CB1 receptor is mainly the messenger receptor and the CB2 receptor is the immune receptor. CB1 receptors are primarily on nerve cells in the brain, spinal cord, and in white blood cells, and in the endocrine glands and in peripheral organs (reproductive organs, gastrointestinal tract & urinary tract). CB2 receptors are found in the white blood cells, tonsils, spleen and the immune system. These receptors play a very important role in our health every day.
Those CB cannabinoids and the receptors they effect and bind to are as follows:
CBG – Cannabigerol CB1 & CB2 receptors – parent to CBD, 1st cannabinoid formed in Hemp plant – helps fight cancer, is anti-inflammatory, helps glaucoma, promotes bone growth
CBDA – Cannabidiolic Acid CB1 & CB2 receptors – precursor to CBD, helps decrease nausea and vomiting, is anti-tumor (cancer-fighting), and promotes bone growth
CBD – Cannabidiol CB1 & CB2 receptors – helps fight epilepsy, cancer, depression, anxiety, pain, and diabetes, it also helps with psychotic disorders, nausea, and is anti-inflammatory
CBC – Cannabichromene CB1 & CB2 receptors – helps fight cancer, depression, inflammation, and pain, it is antifungal and encourages brain growth; needs terpene to bind to receptors
CBL – Cannabicyclol is connected to CBC – light converts CBC to CBL – binds to the same receptors and helps with the same issues
CBN – Cannabinol CB1 & CB2 receptors – helps in pain relief, sleep aid, anti-convulsant, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and promotes bone growth, has mild sedative qualities
Just think all the CB cannabinoids listed above come from the Hemp plant. These CB cannabinoids could possibly become the very best natural supplement for overall health issues and lead us to a healthier and happier life. I encourage you to do your own research be more informed of all the possibilities for a more natural way of healing.
