What is CBD and how is it connected to hemp and THC?

Most people have already heard about THC and maybe also about CBD but not many can really explain what those two substances are, how they work or how they are connected. Firstly it is very important to understand where THC and CBD originate. Both, THC and CBD are cannabinoids and are from the same plant: hemp.

Hemp is one of the oldest cultivated plants used by humans. The broad spectrum of health-promoting ingredients and the diverse areas of application in daily life have made the hemp plant an important raw material for over thousands of years. Nowadays, the ingredients of the hemp plant can be scientifically researched and provide remarkable insights. Hemp cannabinoids, for example, strongly resemble the body’s own endocannabinoids and thus support processes in the higher organs, which in turn serve health.

Referring back to THC, the exact effect has not yet been fully clarified scientifically. However, it is now known that THC acts on receptors in the brain that are located in nerve cells. This modulates the release of neurotransmitters, which ultimately has an effect on the nervous system. These effects can result in the feeling of getting ‘high’. CBD, also Cannabidiol, is like a brother or sister to THC.

When applied internally, the active ingredient enters the human brain. Here, the body’s own receptors (CB1 receptor, 5-HT1A receptor, vanilloid receptors) are addressed. These receptors are responsible for a healthy mental and physical balance in the human body. Receptors are also responsible for the exchange of messenger substances – a complicated micromechanism that takes place in our brain around the clock. The main difference to THC is that CBD (cannabidiol) does not cause psychoactive effects, which means that it does not make you “high”.

Because of its non-psychotropic properties it is considered safe and legal in most countries. In addition, cannabidiol can reduce the effect of the THC by competing with it for the CB1 receptor. Thanks to its antioxidant properties, cannabidiol can protect cells and genetic material from negative external influences.
