The Endocannabinoid System
You are probably wondering, “how does CBD benefit so many different illnesses?” The short answer is that the cannabidiol is highly effective in treating pain and inflammation. It does this by working with the endocannabinoid system, which controls pain and inflammation. Can you think of a disease that does not come with inflammation and pain?
The cannabinoid plant happens to be one of the most (if not the most) pharmacologically active plants on the planet, containing over 400 active chemicals. The unique active components of the plant are called cannabinoids, which are found alongside active chemicals called terpenoids (we also refer to them as terpenes) and flavonoids. These chemical components work together to provide a wide variety of therapeutic benefits to the human body
Does Cannabidiol Have Healing Power?
Various levels and combinations of cannabinoids, terpenoids, and flavonoids provide many benefits to the human body.
These benefits include dilating blood vessels, stimulating bone growth, protecting damaged brain cells, killing certain kinds of cancer cells, preventing seizure, controlling muscle spasticity, killing viruses and bacteria to name a few.
It is the combination of varying levels of cannabinoids, terpenoids, and flavonoids that seem to make the most effective medicine for specific symptoms and diseases – the isolated components appear to be less effective but nonetheless still therapeutic.
