Cannabis is a natural source of phytocannabinoids

Cannabis is a natural source of phytocannabinoids, a group of compounds found mainly in its female inflorescences.
These compounds were first isolated from cannabis, and eventually led to the discovery of the human (and other mammalian) endocannabinoid system. They are chemically related to endocannabinoids, which are produced by the human body and appear to be receptors for these substances throughout the body, resulting in action on the central and peripheral nervous system and peripheral organs. These receptors are of two types and are called CB1 and CB2. The former are found throughout the body, but mainly in the brain and are related to the coordination of movements, pain, emotions and mood, thinking, appetite, memories, etc. while the latter are mainly related to the immune system.
The discovery of the endocannabinoid system opened a new way in research to treat various diseases. Studies have shown that these receptors are involved in the development of many important diseases and their regulation can be important in the treatment of them. Such are various psychiatric disorders, cancer, Alzheimer's disease, multiple sclerosis, cardiovascular and gastroesophageal disorders, Parkinson's and Huntington's disease, etc.
Of the cannabinoids, cannabidiol, or CBD, is of great interest. It is a bioactive but non-psychoactive substance, which is found in large concentrations in cannabis flowers.
The interest of the scientific community is great and research on this substance is constantly producing new knowledge. It acts on both types of receptors in the endocannabinoid system - or more simply, both centrally and regionally.

The benefits of CBD in the body are multiple and include:

Antioxidant properties: It is found to be effective in protecting the body from free radicals that are toxic to cells. There are many who argue that it is a more effective antioxidant even than vitamins C and E and is a case under investigation.
Anti-inflammatory properties: which are mainly due to the action of the CB2 system and regulate the production of cytokines.

Neuroprotective properties: protects the nervous system from acid and chronic degeneration, while it can have a positive effect against Parkinson's disease.

Protection against cerebral ischemia: This substance seems to act protectively against the disease and in fact without a problem of tolerance by the body in the long run.

Type 1 diabetes: Research has shown that CBD can reduce neurotoxicity, inflammation and blood-retinal-barrier breakdown in diabetics
It acts against nausea and the tendency to vomit.
Stress: Cannabidiol has been shown to have anxiolytic properties due to its action on the parietal system of the brain.

Rheumatoid arthritis: Through its combined action as an immunosuppressant and anti-inflammatory, it has a significant effect against rheumatoid arthritis.

Cancer: It can cause toxicity to certain cancer cells at certain concentrations.
It should be noted that while the research that has been done is sufficient, reliable and promising, not enough clinical trials have yet been conducted to provide clear guidelines from the medical community regarding dosing.
It is a substance that acts very differently from organism to organism and it is important for everyone to find the ideal dose for the right balance of the organism.

In short, the benefits and actions of this substance are many and in a wide range, which makes it an important ally for health and quality of life.

It is a substance that acts as a whole to improve the health and protection of the body, being a powerful ally in the challenges of everyday life.
