How does CBD work?
CBD usually works by interacting with the body's endocannabinoid system, which is a regulatory system and is made up of molecules similar to naturally occurring cannabis. These endocannabinoids act as a neurotransmitter, commuting messages throughout the body to maintain homeostasis. Cannabinoids such as CBD and THC interact with our endocannabinoid system and encourages the body to produce more of its own endocannabinoids. This helps in reducing anxiety, pain and inflammation.
The endocannabinoid system (ECS) consists of three parts: Cannabinoid receptors, endogenous cannabinoids and the enzymes. These enzymes are responsible for the creation as well as breaking down of the cannabinoids within the body.
The endocannabinoid system is responsible for communicating with almost every system including Central Nervous System, Immune System as well as certain organs. The Cannabinoid CBD typically binds with the receptors of the bodies in a similar manner in which the puzzle pieces fit together.
Studies have revealed that when CBD binds with the cannabinoid receptors, they work together for generating wellness benefits.
