Your body has its own cannabinoid system, referred to as the endocannabinoid system (ECS). This system is involved in various processes such as mood and sensations. For instance, exercising to the point of experiencing a "runner's high" is your ECS at work.
Cannabidiol—CBD—is a cannabis compound that has significant medical benefits, but does not make people feel “stoned” and can actually counteract the psychoactivity of THC. The fact that CBD-rich cannabis is non-psychoactive or less psychoactive than THC-dominant strains makes it an appealing option for patients looking for relief from inflammation, pain, anxiety, psychosis, seizures, spasms, and other conditions without disconcerting feelings of lethargy or dysphoria.
