How Does CBD Work

Cannabinoids in the Body

80+ cannabinoid compounds are found in cannabis plants.
Most abundant are THC and CBD.

  • THC (delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol)
    Psychoactive
  • Creates the characteristic marijuana “high”
  • Can relieve pain and inflammation
CBD (cannabidiol)
  • Non-psychoactive
  • Can reduce negative psychoactive effects of THC
  •  Responsible for many of the medical benefits of cannabis
  • Endocannabinoid system (ECS) – Keeps internal bodily functions stable and controls how we think, feel, and react
Cannabinoids we consume interact with receptors in the body to produce different effects.
