Cannanda is proud and excited to present one of our greatest innovations: our CB2TM blend is a legal, non-prescription alternative to cannabidiol (CBD) or used to enhance your CBD experience. CBD is the popular cannabis compound that has significant health benefits, but lacks the psychoactive effects of its sister compound, THC. This mean you get a number of incredible health benefits without feeling “high,” and it delivers these benefits by positively influencing the endocannabinoid system (ECS; the body’s master regulator of homeostasis). This unique and proprietary blend achieves its health-giving benefits through the activation of one of the main receptors of the ECS, a receptor called the cannabinoid receptor type 2 (CB2). However, if you’re already CBD user, the benefits could be even greater! There is a perfect synergy between Cannanda’s CB2 and CBD products. Activating CB2 receptors is not how CBD is thought to work. This is because CBD only has a very weak ability to bind to CB2 receptors. Newer studies suggest CBD is more of an allosteric modifier (changes the shape of receptors), allowing the receptors to function better. This is when our own endocannabinoids can activate CB2 receptors, and could be how we get the benefits from CBD products. However, if we can supply the body with external sources of compounds that activate CB2 receptors (such as those found in our CB2TM blends, we can amplify those benefits. It’s actually the perfect combination! Think of it this way: consider a light bulb socket as the receptor, and a light bulb is CBD. Once we screw the bulb into the socket, we can then flip the switch (CB2TM) that turns on the light!
