CBD oil is not a new name, rather it is the most discussed subject. CBD oil has many potential benefits if the right amount of CBD is used for the right purpose. It has a wide number of therapeutic as well as medicinal benefits. People around the globe are in a struggle to dig more and more information about CBD, because of a large number of advantages. Many patients are turning to CBD in order to get benefitted from its medical qualities. If you have little information about CBD, then you must be aware of the fact that it influences the way you feel. Though CBD does not have an effect of euphoria or stoned or high, whatever you may call it, many people are concerned about this property of CBD and are often misunderstood.
Cannabidiol or CBD is a compound that is extracted from the cannabis plant. The cannabis plant contains at least 113 different cannabinoids as well as other minerals, vitamins and flavonoids. CBD is one of the cannabinoids that is found in abundance in cannabis or hemp plant. Marijuana plan also has CBD and is also used for extracting CBD compounds, but the difference between CBD extracted from hemp and marijuana is dependent on the levels of THC.
THC or tetrahydrocannabinol is the psychoactive cannabinoids found in the marijuana plant. This compound is available in large quantities in the marijuana plant and this is the reason that marijuana is illegal in many countries. Due to the fact that THC creates a feeling of high in the person who consumes it, moreover,it affects the information processing and can result in hallucination, paranoia and euphoria as well as it has mind changing abilities. Marijuana easily contains 5 to 30% of the THC compound, due to which the consumption of THC is not recommended despite it having the same medical benefits as CBD.
CBD, on the other hand, is derived from the cannabis plant or hemp plant, which only contains traces of THC. The hemp plant must have 0.3% or less amount of THC in order to be considered legal in many states of the United States of America. Such less amount of THC doesnot have psychoactive effects on a person as a result of which CBD can easily be used to treat various diseases without any worries.
In order to understand that how CBD can influence the way we feel, one must have an understanding of the human endocannabinoid system. Though many studies are not available on the endocannabinoidsystem, scientists have come to the conclusion that the endocannabinoid system is responsible for the communication between the brain and the body. It uses the messengers and receptors to create a relation between the mind and the body. The endocannabinoid system regulates the functioning of various parts of the body. Some of the functions managed by the endocannabinoid system include the social behaviourand mood regulation, pain and inflammation perception, stress and emotional responses, memory and learning, thefunctioningof the immune system, digestive processes, metabolism processes and sleep cycle regulation.

CBD is used to react with the receptors of the central nervous system to manage and control the neurological processes and change the release of neurotransmitters. Due to this reason,CBD has an effect on the feelings of a person, though it does not create a hype of hallucinations or mind-alteringproperties, it releases serotonin that makes you feel good.
