CBD... What it is and What it is not...

CBD stands for cannabidiol and is  found primarily in extractions from the hemp plant.  Hemp and marijuana are both cannabis plants, but hemp has much lower concentrations of tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC and higher concentrations of CBD. THC is the psychoactive component in cannabis that provides the high for users, than marijuana plants. Hemp has to have THC below .3 percent. Since 1970, all cannabis has been categorized as a controlled substance and, as such, considered illegal by the federal government but as you know things have been changing. For example, the 2018 Farm Bill  legalized hemp and provides for regulating the growth of the plant. The fibers and stalks are used for a variety of purposes, including clothing, construction materials, paper and plastic composites, while the seeds and flowers are used in health food and body care products containing cannabidiol, better known as CBD. The bill also allows for the transportation of hemp-based products across state lines as long as the THC level is below 0.3 percent.

 

Both compounds interact with your body’s endocannabinoid system, but they have very different effects. CBD does NOT induce intoxicating effects. Instead, it has been discovered that CBD initiates multiple actions in the central nervous system and even has an influence on reducing the effects of THC.  In many cases, the oil is extracted to be consumed as a liquid, made into pills, or mixed directly into food. Some people prefer to consume it through vaporizer pens. Others prefer to use it topically — for example, with CBD salves or creams that are applied directly to the body. This is a particularly interesting approach because since dermal absorption can’t produce psychoactive side effects, even if there is any THC present in the CBD, you still won’t feel high.

 

Things keep changing and on March 29, 2019 the State of Michigan's Media Contact: LARA Communications 517-335-LARA (5272) released that The Bureau of Marijuana Regulation (BMR) and the Michigan Dept of Agriculture & Rural Development (MDARD) issued a joint guidance regarding CBD (cannabidiol) and industrial hemp. and provided these definitions for clarity. 


Definitions

  • Marihuana (legal term) or Marijuana (common term): the plant Cannabis sativa L. with delta-9-THC concentrations above 0.3%. Includes products made from the marijuana plant, but excludes stalks, products made from the stalks, and some products made from seeds.
  • Industrial Hemp: the plant Cannabis sativa L. with delta-9-THC concentrations below 0.3%. Includes products made from the industrial hemp plant. 
  • CBD (Cannabidiol): a substance derived from cannabis plants that does not have psychoactive effects.

CBD... What is it Good for? Benefits of CBD

It  is believed that cannabidiol works within the body by mimicking the  effects of compounds called “endogenous cannabinoids,” or  “endocannabinoids.”  There have been a scientific discovery that there  are cannabinoid-like chemicals inside the body that respond with  receptors that make up the endocannabinoid system. This is a recently  discovered physiologic body system that is involved in establishing and  maintaining our health...it may be the most important system. We  naturally synthesize these chemical compounds and they modulate  receptors throughout the body. Amazingly, CBD and other cannabinoids  also interact with these receptors. When we ingest CBD or apply it  topically, it activates these receptors in the body so then this is what  gives CBD its ability to benefit areas of the body in a positive way.   When choosing a CBD product, make sure to purchase from a reputable  company that lists all ingredients on the label. You also want to choose  an organic CBD in order to avoid ingesting pesticides and other harmful  chemicals that can lead to unwanted side effects.  With the passing of  the 2018 US Farm Bill, look for a product that is made in the USA with  premium quality US grown hemp.

The What System? The Endocannabinoid System

The  endocannobinoid system  is a biochemical communication system in the  body that was discovered about 25 years ago, when scientists were  researching how THC affected the body. In their research, they uncovered  a complex network of cannabinoid receptors that affect cells throughout  the body, including the central nervous system.  We now know that our  body naturally synthesizes what are called endogenous cannabinoids,  which are chemical messengers that interact with these receptors. The  receptors in our nervous system and immune system react to cannabis  compounds to produce specific effects that may benefit many bodily  processes. Using products with CBD may be extremely helpful for keeping  this important system in balance.  With anti-inflammatory properties,  CBD oil may help reduce stress and anxiety, relieve pain, and more. If  you are taking any medications, talk to your doctor about possible  interactions.

CBD vs. THC

 CBD and THC are two of the most prominent cannabinoids found in the Cannabis plant. Both marijuana and hemp produce CBD and THC. However, marijuana  has a higher concentration of THC. Hemp has a higher concentration of  CBD. Because hemp contains more CBD than the relatively low levels of  THC, it’s the ideal source for CBD oil. The average marijuana strain  today contains about 12 %THC.   CBD oil may contain small amounts of THC because it’s present in the  hemp plant. CBD can have no more than 0.3 percent THC to be legally sold  in the U.S. 

  

Both  CBD and THC have the exact same molecular structure: 21 carbon atoms,  30 hydrogen atoms, and 2 oxygen atoms. A slight difference in how the  atoms are arranged accounts for the differing effects on your body. Both  CBD and THC are chemically similar to your body’s own endocannabinoids.  This allows them to interact with your cannabinoid receptors.


The interaction affects the release of neurotransmitters in your brain. Neurotransmitters are chemicals responsible for relaying  messages between cells and have roles in pain, immune function, stress,  sleep, to name a few.
