Many people associate tetrahydrocannabinol, also known as THC with Cannabidiol, CBD. THC produces a psychoactive high whereas Cannabidiol, CBD does not have psychoactive properties. CBD is a natural compound of the hemp plant cannabis sativa. We each have an endocannabinoid system also known as ECS within our bodies. The ECS system regulates our body temperatures and blood sugar levels. ECS is made up of two receptors CB1 and CB2. CB1 receptors present in our central nervous system. CB1 receptor interacts with THC to produce a psychoactive high. The second receptor within our endocannabinoid system is CB2. CB2 is present in our immune cells and gastrointestinal tracts. CBD binds to CB2 and cannot get users high.
