Hemp is one of the oldest useful plants of humankind. Whether used in textiles or in food – hemp offers many different possible uses. The Cannabinoid CBD is, beside many valuable proteins, terpenes and further active substances, the second most frequently used ingredient of the hemp plant.
CBD affects the endogenous human cannabinoid system. This is part of the nervous system and has receptors on the cell surface to which CBD can dock. These receptors regulate numerous biological processes in the body. CBD acts mainly on the so-called CB2 receptor, which is known for its connection to the immune system and pain centres of the body.
