Other than one prescription drug product to treat rare, severe forms of epilepsy, the FDA has not approved any other CBD products. The FDA is working to answer questions about the science, safety, and quality of products containing CBD. In the meantime, CBD products are subject to the same laws and requirements as FDA-regulated products that contain any other substance. Learn more about the FDA’s stance on CBD here.

THC interacts with the brain creating a euphoric ‘high’. However, CBD is not psychoactive and does not produce a similar high. So how, exactly, does it work? It’s important to know that we all have a system within our bodies responsible for regulating the response of our immune systems, our sleep patterns, our moods, and how we experience pain and inflammation. It’s called the endocannabinoid system (ECS), and its function is to deal with the cannabinoids naturally produced by our bodies. It does this via two kinds of cannabinoid receptors found throughout the body: CB1 receptors (located in the brain and nervous system) and CB2 receptors (located in the immune system).
While THC affects your brain’s endocannabinoid receptors (resulting in the high), CBD does not attach directly to the receptors. Instead, it influences your body into using its own natural supply of cannabinoids more effectively. That is to say, it can inhibit or activate compounds in the ECS, which in turn can impact the amount of pain you feel or limit inflammation in the brain and nervous system.
These are some of the most common cannabinoids found in cannabis. Studies have demonstrated that they can affect a variety of biological functions regulated by the body’s endocannabinoid system, such as appetite, stress and pain. To learn about the effects check out:
- Tetrahydrocannabinolic Acid (THCA)
- Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC)
- Cannabidiolic Acid (CBDA)
- Cannabidiol (CBD)
- Cannabinol (CBN)
- Cannabigerol (CBG)
- Cannabichromene (CBC)
- Tetrahydrocannabivarin (THCV)
Full-spectrum CBD (also called whole plant extract) contains all of the hemp plant’s naturally occurring cannabinoids. It also contains other compounds such as terpenes and flavonoids. Full-spectrum CBD allows the beneficial and synergistic effects of all compounds naturally occurring in the hemp plant to be experienced.
