The endocannabinoid system can be explained as the body’s internal network of physiological processes governed by signaling molecules that resemble those found in the cannabis plant.  These molecules in turn bind to special receptors throughout the human body to regulate a broad range of biological function.​
The “Key and Lock”

  • Every lock has its own key.​
  • If the key is not precise, the lock does not open.​
  • The endo-cannabinoid is the key that has to fit the target cell specifically and productively.
The “Keys”
CBD “Non-Psychoactive” or “Non-Intoxicating”
  • Cannabidiol has been clinically shown to:​
  • Act centrally on the nervous system to reduce seizure frequency.​
  • Alleviate symptoms of opioid withdrawal.​
  • Alleviate symptoms of anxiety.​
  • Elevate mode to lessen symptoms of depression.​

Therefore, non-psychoactive is by definition misleading because it DOES function within the central nervous system to influence our “psyche.”​

On the other hand, it DOESN’T produce symptoms of impairment or intoxication.
