CBD and the psychedelic receptor

CBD and… [psilocybin] act at 5-HT2A, the psychedelic receptor, in different ways, resulting in markedly different effects.

Whereas CBD has little binding affinity for the classical cannabinoid receptors, CB1 and CB2, several serotonin receptor subtypes are key docking sites for CBD, [including the 5-HT2A].
