Cannabidiol (CBD) is now federally legal, it is a primary component of cannabis. CBD is one of the most prominent cannabinoids found in cannabis. CBD will not cause you to feel high.  CBD does not bind to the CB1 and CB2 receptors like THC and instead causes therapeutic actions through indirect means.

CBD is an inhibitor of an enzyme known as FAAH. That enzyme is responsible for breaking down anandamide which is a naturally occurring endocannabinoid. By inhibiting this enzyme CBD creates more available anandamide by preventing it’s degradation.  Some benefits of having more available anandamide for the CB1 receptor include:

Lowering depression, anxiety, fear, and paranoia
Increasing myelin formation
Lowering inflammation
Increasing BDNF levels and PPARy expression
Reducing GPR55 signaling and prolactin

CBD is also an allosteric modulator; allosteric modulators change the shape of specific receptors to alter their ability to interact with neurotransmitters. CBD is a positive allosteric modulator of the mu and delta opioid receptors, which means it enhances the ability of those receptors to receive endogenous enkephalins which can have a number of positive effects.

High doses of CBD activate the 5-ht1A receptor. This receptor helps regulate anxiety, addiction, appetite, sleep, pain perception, nausea, and vomiting. CBDA shows the highest affinity for this receptor. [Source]

CBD will also antagonize GPR55 receptors, which are widely distributed in the brain and help control your blood pressure and bone density. Activated GPR55 promotes cancer cell poliferation. [Source]

Additionally, CBD will activate TRPV1 receptors which are involved in regulating pain, body temperature, and inflammation. Anandamines also target this receptor. [Source]

Finally, CBD will activate PPAR-gamma receptors located on the cell’s nuclei and play a role in your lipid uptake, insulin sensitivity, dopamine release, and the degradation of beta-amyloid plague. This effect can help explain the use of CBD in varied cases of Alzheimer’s disease, schizophrenia, and diabetes. Thus in conclusion, we see a wide variety of medical uses in which CBD  has large efficacy.  CBD does not remain limited to these uses as we continue to discover further uses of this potent substance with federal legalization allowing wide-spread research.

    It’s no secret that many cancer patients are using cannabis to help manage pain, fatigue, nausea, and other side effects of chemotherapy. Less well known is the fact that extensive preclinical research shows that plant cannabinoids – most notably, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD) - produce antitumor responses in various animal models of cancer.
