In this 15-minute video I provide a summary of my recent article that discussed the multiple actions of the most studied compounds found in the cannabis plant: CBD (cannabidiol), THC (delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol), and its essential oil. In order to understand their mechanisms, I broke down the key points from my research reviews in easy-to-understand terms. This should satisfy the science geek equally as well as the curious health seeker.

In this video, I review:

  • The differences between CBD oil and cannabis essential oil (which is loaded with beneficial terpenes).

  • The importance of the “entourage effect.”

  • The endocannabinoid system (ECS) and its role in health and diseases.

  • The two main cannabinoid receptors (CB1 and CB2) within the ECS and how the different compounds in cannabis uniquely modulate them.

  • Why it’s important to understand the ECS and its effects, especially when differentiating the actions of THC, CBD, and cannabis essential oil constituents.

  • … and more exclusive information!
