Over 20 years of research has revealed that human brain cells and nerve cells have two types of cannabinoid receptors, or molecules that grab cannabinoids. When a cannabinoid meets a receptor, it can cause an effect to occur within the cell.

The cannabinoid receptors are found in the parts of the brain that handle cognition, memory, psychomotor skills, feelings of rewards, and pain perception. Cannabinoids, such as Cannabidiol, interact with the receptors to reduce feelings of pain or anxiety.


The fact that the human body contains these receptors suggests that cannabinoids play a natural role within the immune system. This theory is further supported by the existence of the endocannabinoid system, which includes naturally occurring chemicals with the human body that stimulate the cannabinoid receptors.

Some areas of research showing a positive relationship include: Pain Relief, Anxiety and Depression, Cancer-Related Symptoms, Acne, Neuroprotective Properties, Heart Health, Antipsychotic Effects, Substance Abuse Treatment, Anti-Tumor Effects, Diabetes Prevention.
