The first law in the American Colonies regarding marijuana was a 1619 law that required farmers to grow the hemp plant.

How does CBD work?

 

Humans, and all mammals, have a natural receptor system known as the endocannabinoid system [ECS] that allows for cellular communication and regulation.

 

The ECS is made up of receptors throughout our entire body: CB1 and CB2 receptors.

 

CBD binds to these receptors in a way that causes your body to produce more of them, so the communication between cells can be strengthened and improved.

 

Much of the therapeutic effects of CBD is actually carried out by your own endocannabinoid system; CBD simply promotes the normal function of the endocannabinoid system.

The CB cannabinoids and the receptors they affect 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 - a 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.

The Endocannabinoid System is responsible for maintaining: Metabolisn, Pain, Appetite, Sleep, Mood, Movement, Temperature, Memory & Learning, Inflammation, Neural Development, Neuroprotection, Cardiovascular Function, Digestion, Reproduction
