Type of Compound: Cannabinoid
Description: CBD has tremendous medical potential. This is particularly true when the correct ratio of CBD to THC is applied to treat a particular condition. CBD acts as an antagonist at both the CB1 and CB2 receptors, yet it has a low binding affinity for both. This suggests that CBD’s mechanism of action is mediated by other receptors in the brain and body.
CBD can be sourced from the cannabis plant, including varieties of Hemp, for a hemp CBD that is non-psychoactive.
