✅ Derived from hemp plants, CBD is a cannabidiol. Naturally-occurring cannabinoids exist in our bodies as a part of the endocannabinoid system — not exactly a system you learned about in school. These cannabinoids and their receptors are in our brains, organs, nervous system, and immune system.
✅ Cannabinoid receptors are concentrated in certain areas of the brain associated with thinking, memory, pleasure, coordination, and time perception. THC attaches to these receptors and activates them, affecting a person’s memory, pleasure, movements, thinking, concentration, coordination, and sensory and time perception, according to NIDA. THC’s chemical structure is similar to the brain chemical, anandamide, which is a natural cannabinoid in the body, known as an endogenous cannabinoid. Endogenous cannabinoids function as neurotransmitters and send chemical messages between nerve cells (neurons) throughout the nervous system. Similarities in the structure allows the body to recognize THC and allow it to attach to these cannabinoid receptors on the body’s neurons in the brain, and to alter normal brain communication.
✅ CBD is non-toxic with no known fatal overdoses ever reported. In a study from 2011, results showed that chronic use and high doses up to 1,500 mg/day of CBD were well tolerated in humans. CBD, having no psychoactive properties, does not cause dependence and, therefore, does not cause withdrawal symptoms. CBD has been shown to be safe and effective over long period of time. There has been no evidence to suggest otherwise. Thus, an overdose on CBD remains a very rare possibility indeed.
✅ Besides the reason you are taking CBD, such as for relief from seizures, pain, inflammation, or relaxation of the muscles and body systems, you won’t feel anything from taking CBD in your brain, unless of course you do happen to experience the side effects mentioned above. The only thing you should feel while taking CBD is relief.
