Get the Facts
CBD was not isolated until 1940 by the chemist Roger Adams, and its chemical structure wasn’t clearly defined until 1963 by Raphael Mechoulam.
CBD is 1 of over 60 cannabinoids found in cannabis
Although CBD and THC are by far the most popular and well-studied, there are more than 60 cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. Many of them are present in such low amounts that they’re difficult to detect at all; modern scientific estimates place the real number anywhere between 60 and 113 cannabinoids.
CBD isolate is a pure, crystalline powder that contains 99% pure CBD. CBD isolate contains only CBD. All the plant matter contained in the hemp plant, including oils, waxes, chlorophyll, and more are removed, offering a finished product that is CBD and nothing more.
Because full-spectrum CBD oil interacts with cannabinoid receptors in the brain, it’s not entirely accurate to describe it as non-psychoactive. However, it will not induce the sense of euphoria for which THC is so well-known. Full-spectrum contains plant terpenes that attribute to the entourage effect.
What Is The Endocannabinoid System?
The endogenous cannabinoid system, or endocannabinoid system (ECS), is the network of cell receptors throughout the body that interact with cannabinoids. Without the system, cannabinoids would do nothing for our bodies, and cannabis would be irrelevant as a drug. Although, they are still quite useful as a crop by other means, including clothing and rope.
It would be a mistake, however, to think that the ECS only exists to react with the cannabinoids in marijuana. The human body, in fact, produces its own cannabinoids, called endocannabinoids.
Interestingly, we know less about the cannabinoids our own bodies produce than we do about those the hemp plant produces. And that’s because the discovery of cannabinoid receptors didn’t take place until 1988. It was this important discovery that initiated the search for our body’s own endocannabinoids.
Until then, scientists believed a kind of generic interaction between cells and plant cannabinoids caused the psychological and physiological effects of marijuana. Now, we understand that there are highly specific chemical mechanisms responsible for those effects.
