Terpene Tuesday: Caryophyllenes
Beta-caryophyllene and alpha-humulene act as potent agonists (activators) to the endocannabinoid system’s CB2 receptor. The CB2, when activated, reduces the inflammatory response carried out by the immune system as CB2 is rooted in most immune cells throughout the body. An interaction with the CB2 receptor results in down-regulation of the inflammatory response carried out by these immune cells.
Delta 8 vs Delta 10 : What are the differences?
How does delta-8 work? THC interacts with the body by binding to cannabinoid receptors (CB1 and CB2) in the endocannabinoid system. Delta-8 is slightly structurally different from delta-9 and has a lower affinity for CB1 receptors, making it less psychoactive (approximately two-thirds as potent) than delta-9 THC.
