CBD stands for cannabidiol. Unlike THC, it is not psychoactive. CBD belongs to the family of cannabinoids which can be found in the hemp plant. Cannabinoids produced by plants are also called phyto-cannabinoids while cannabinoids produced by our bodies are called endo-cannabinoids.

Cannabinoids are substances which are found in the hemp plant. Cannabinoids from plant sources are called phyto-cannabinoids, and cannabinoids made by our bodies are called endo-cannabinoids.

The ECS regulates various bodily functions (such as appetite, sleep, pain, mood), and mainly works to maintain homeostasis (a stable internal environment). Cannabinoid receptors are part of the ECS. There are 2 main types of receptors, CB1 and CB2. CB1 receptors are mainly found in the brain and nervous system. CB2 receptors are mainly found in the immune system.

TLDR: CBD works by:
1) Boosting the production of endocannabinoids in your body
2) Prolonging the effects of the endocannabinoids in your body

There are multiple possible pathways on how CBD works:
Pathway 1: CBD binds to CB1 and CB2 receptors. Causing more endocannabinoids to be produced.
Pathway 2: CBD stops the endocannabinoids from being broken down by the FAAH enzyme (fatty acid amide hydrolase), so it prolongs the effects of endocannabinoids
Pathway 3: CBD reacts at the serotonin receptor, giving you the same effects as serotonin (regulates your appetite and mood)
Pathway 4: CBD reacts at the dopamine receptor, giving you the same effects as dopamine (regulates your happiness and motivation)
Pathway 5: CBD reacts at the adenosine receptor, giving you the same effects as adenosine (regulates your sleep cycles and your tatas)

Cannabidiol (CBD) binds to the CB1 and CB2 receptors “indirectly” so it also affects the body “indirectly”. This “indirect binding” is complicated and scientists are still working on determining CBD’s exact pathway.
In comparison, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) binds to the CB1 receptor directly and cannabinol (CBN) binds to the CB2 receptor directly. Both THC and CBN are illegal to the general public and are highly regulated under the Dangerous Drugs Ordinance in Hong Kong.

THC binds directly to CB1 receptors, causing a "high". CBD is non-psychoactive and does Not give you a high.

'Medicinal chemistry of cannabinoids'

That is because CBD acts as an "enhancer" for your own body's endocannabinoids - it is also the main reason why it is classed as a non-psychoactive and is therefore legal in Hong Kong! If your body is unable to produce endocannabinoids in sufficient quantities, CBD is likely to be ineffective for you.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO): "Human studies, evidence from available clinical studies is not supportive of an abuse potential for CBD", and "No case reports of abuse or dependence relating to the use of pure CBD have been identified."

There are currently no human clinical studies that support the theory of CBD abuse or dependence. Additionally, there have been no records of anyone dying from a CBD overdose.
