CBD or cannabidiol is one of over 115 cannabinoids contained in all types of hemp. Cannabinoids are compounds that bind to human cannabinoid receptors in the endocannabinoid system.
We know 3 types of cannabinoids:
- Endocannabinoids – these are our own cannabinoids in our bodies and serve to transmit information around the body.
- Phytocannabinoids – these are produced in plants, are similar to the animal-type and are therefore able to activate our receptors, too. In nature, most cannabinoids are found in cannabis. They’re very effective as they work in groups.
- Synthetic cannabinoids – prepared in laboratories are typically less effective compared to naturally derived ones as they each work individually.
Our brains are a part of the overall nervous system and contain the most receptors for cannabinoids (CB1 and CB2), which are otherwise found throughout the body, including in the bones! When we consume the CBD paste, we give our body an additional chance to receive and transmit information through all these receptors, thus carrying out the necessary processes faster. If the body is fighting some kind of an issue, it can thus fight much more effectively and win sooner.
CBD paste is obtained from the resin glands of industrial hemp (Cannabis sativa L. var. Sativa) using a special procedure, the result of which is a dietary supplement with a high concentration of cannabinoids and terpenes.
