Hemp and Cannabis Sativa are plants that contain Cannabidiol, the second most active chemical compound falling inline with THC. Cannabidiol was extracted and introduced as a therapeutic drug, which provides health benefits to users such as better moods, reduced stress and anxiety, and improve sleep. But, there are also other plants that contain traces of CBD even though we’ve thought that only hemp and cannabis contained CBD for years. However, CBD is quite common to find in other plants, but these are known as Cannabimimetics.
Cannabimimetics are a mimic of the classical cannabinoids. They do not share their structure with the original chemical compound but their biological activity is almost similar to cannabinoids. Examples of plants that contain Cannabimimetics are Echinaceas and the Electric Daisy.
Echinaceas is an all-round medical plant that is well known to be used to treat conditions similarly treatable with cannabis. This flower is often used to treat the common cold and relieve arthritis pains. The chemical compounds in Echinaceas interact with the Cannabinoid receptor type 2, which is a receptor that is heavily responsible for treating inflammation and regulating the body’s immune system.
Other than that, the bright yellow Electric Daisy, or the Toothache Plant, is considered to be one of the most powerful natural painkillers. Research and testings conducted at Cambridge University have discovered that this flower has the capabilities of blocking pain receptors found in the nerve endings of our body. The reason as to how it is able to perform so well as a natural painkiller is due to the N-isobutylamides, a compound similar to cannabinoids. Like the Echinaceas, this compound can stimulate and interact with the CB2 receptors, thus allowing to combat sharp pains.
But for safety reasons, consuming a cannabimimetic plant might not provide an instant effect as CBD oils. CTFO CBD oils are a growing brand of cannabidiol oils by the Change the Future Outcome (CTFO) company. To shop for CBD hemp oils, visit http://tk2018.myctfocbd.com/ for more.
