CBD is the abbreviation used for cannabidiol, which is the second most abundant cannabinoid component found in cannabis plants. Cannabis plants contain another cannabinoid component called THC. THC is solely responsible for the occurrence of any negative effects in the brain. CBD, on the contrary reduces this effect and has a lot of other medical benefits.
Not all cannabis is used to extract CBD. The specialized cannabis plants which contain minute quantities of THC and large amounts of CBD, are called hemp plants. These hemp plants are put to use to extract CBD and other CBD products.
CBD in fighting cancer
Cancer is a fatal disease taking away thousands of lives. The cause of cancer is the uncontrolled growth of certain cells. Now there are certain CBD binding sites on the cancerous cells. When CBD binds to these sites, it sends a signal to the cancer cells to destroy themselves without affecting the healthy cells.
CBD possesses certain pro-apoptotic and anti-proliferative effects. Thus, it does not allow the tumor cells to grow any further and leads to the death of the tumor cells only. CBD works by interfering with the neovascularization of the tumor cells, migration of the tumor cells and adhesion of the cancer cells.
Pure CBD – a blooming antidote for scores of diseases
