As CBD use as a therapeutic alternative to conventional medicine, many people are asking: does CBD interact with other medications? The concern is certainly valid as nearly half of all Americans are taking at least 1 prescription drug.
CBD, or cannabidiol, has become of the one most popular and highly talked about supplemental therapeutics in the wellness, medical, and alternative medicine communities in the last several years. In fact, in 2020 alone, the CBD market nearly crossed $1 Billion dollars, and is anticipated to exceed $5 Billion by 2025. In this concise article, we will highlight some of the health benefits of CBD.
The endocannabinoid system (ECS) consists of receptors, their ligands (a molecule that binds to another (usually larger) molecule.) and enzymes (a substance produced by a living organism which acts as a catalyst to bring about a specific biochemical reaction.) that are responsible for the synthesis and the degradation of endogenous ligands.
Cannabinoids are a group of diverse chemical compounds that act on the cannabinoid receptor cells within our bodies. They are broken down into three main categories, Endocannabinoids, Phytocannabinoids, and Synthetic Cannabinoids.
Cannabis is one of the most versatile plants ever to be discovered with a history rich in diverse uses that spans over twelve-millennium. Written history of its use by humans dates back to at least the third millennium BCE, and by archaeological evidence much further back. Humans have had a long, diverse, history and relationship with Cannabis that likely goes back to the advent of our species.
