Cannabidiol or CBD is derived directly from the hemp plant – a close relation to the marijuana plant. CBD Oil and CBD tinctures are trending for a variety of uses from treating anxiety to inflammation. The molecular formula of cannabidiol is C21H30O2. The properties are white to light yellow resins or crystals, with a melting point of 66°C to 67°C, almost insoluble in water, but soluble in organic solvents such as ethanol, methanol, ether, benzene, and chloroform.
Analgesic and anti-inflammatory: Cannabidiol can produce analgesic effects. The pharmacological mechanism of analgesia is mainly related to the CB1 receptor and the CB2 receptor. And the effect is stronger than the well-known and widely used aspirin.
Anti-epileptic: GABA neurotransmitter in the human brain has a calming effect and inhibits the excitability of the brain center. Cannabidiol can help control the consumption of GABA neurotransmitter, inhibit brain excitement, reduce seizures, and can also help improve the efficacy of other anti-epileptic drugs.
Anti-anxiety: Endogenous cannabidiol is an important substance that helps depression patients reduce anxiety and exists in the human body. Cannabidiol can help endocannabinoids to be maintained at a reasonable level, allowing patients to feel good and happy, without being addictive like THC.
Anti-oxidant and anti-aging: Medical research shows that cannabidiol CBD is powerful in anti-aging. Cannabidiol CBD is helpful for a series of human diseases and body disorders related to immune system activation and oxidative stress response.
As a non-psychoactive component in the cannabis plant, cannabidiol CBD can inhibit the glutamate toxic response of cerebral cortex neurons, and at the same time produce antioxidant behavior, inhibit excessive oxidative stress, and help the body achieve anti-aging effects.
In a large number of pre-clinical experimental models of inflammation and degenerative disease related to high ROS (reactive oxygen species) and free radical production, CBD has been proven to have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects.
