Cannabidiol (CBD) is an active substance contained in cannabis that affects the CB1 and CB2 receptors of the human body. These receptors are located in the central and peripheral nervous
systems. CB1 receptors are mostly located in the brain and respond to cannabinoids, including CBD. Cannabidiol prevents the activation of dopamine by acting on CB1 receptors. Due to this,
hyperactivity is inhibited. As a result, taking the drug helps to calm the immune and nervous systems of the body.

CBD has been proven to help patients with nervous and psychological diseases. Also, this plant-derived cannabinoid helps to control autoimmune pathologies. At the same time, unlike other plant
cannabinoid THC contained in cannabis, CBD does not have a psychoactive effect, does not cause euphoria and hallucinations.

According to the conducted studies, CBD does not harm the body even with intensive use, does not provoke addiction, and contributes to the manifestation of side effects. The substance is
increasingly being used in Western medicine as primary and auxiliary therapy.
