WHAT IS CBD ?

What is the meaning of CBD?

Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of the most prevalent chemical compounds in the cannabis plant. Unlike the more famous molecule, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), CBD is completely nonpsychoactive. Now, the medical potential of CBD has taken cannabis to mainstream audiences. Preclinical trials over the past four decades have found that the cannabinoid shows promise as an:

  • anti-inflammatory

  • antioxidant

  • neuroprotectant

  • anxiolytic

  • antidepressant

  • analgesic

  • anti-tumoral agent

  • anti-psychotic

How does CBD work?

Most predominant inside the resin glands of the female cannabis plant, CBD is one of over 80 chemical compounds known as cannabinoids.  Cannabinoids binds to special receptors on your cells, called cannabinoid receptors, which are part of the endocannabinoid system (ECS). The ECS refers to a collection of cell receptors and corresponding molecules and two primary cell receptors make up the ECS, Cannabinoid Receptor 1 (CB1) and Cannabinoid Receptor 2 (CB2). Cannabinoid receptors are found all throughout the body, giving them a wide variety of functions. CB1 receptors are abundant in the central nervous system and CB2 receptors are more often found on immune cells, in the gastrointestinal tract, and in the peripheral nervous system. That is why the diversity of receptor locations shows just how important endocannabinoids are for day-to-day bodily function. They help regulate sleep, appetite, mood, pain, motor control, among other. While THC binds with cannabinoid receptors directly, CBD does not. Instead, it works it’s magic on an enzyme which increases the amount of endocannabinoids in your system. Somehow, CBD seems to tap into this balancing system to produce its therapeutic effects. CBD is able to interact with cells in our bodies because the molecule has a similar composition to similar chemicals that the human body produces naturally, called endocannabinoids. While there is still much to learn about CBD, scientists have discovered that the compound does a lot more than engage cannabinoid receptors. The effects of CBD in the body are broad and far-reaching. Thus far, the cannabinoid is known to also directly or indirectly affect the following:

  • Vanilloid receptors (important for pain modulation)

  • Adenosine receptors (important for the sleep-wake cycle)

  • Serotonin receptors (important for mood and stress management)



What is CBD used to treat?

The therapeutic value of CBD is almost unbelievable. For decades, outdated laws have banned a plant that produces what may become one of the most important medicines for modern disease. CBD is polypharmacological, meaning that it can affect multiple different pathways in the body at once. This makes it extremely difficult to study, as it is almost impossible to tell what effect these different interactions have upon each other. However, regardless of a lack of high-quality human trials, many medical cannabis patients find relief with this calming cannabinoid. Here are a few of the common reasons patients use CBD: anxiety, arthritis, pain, colitis, depression, epilepsy, fibromyalgia, inflammation and migrane. CBD can treat the same diseases as well for your pet (dogs, cats and horses).

If CBD is non-psychoactive, is it still illegal?

To ensure that our products are THC-free all of our products with content of CBD come from hemp. Hemp is legal and can be cultivated in most European countries, has high concentration of CBD and no THC. In this way, the Green Honey products are legal and can be sold in most of European countries as a food supplement.
