How Does CBD Work?
We have only known about the endocannabinoid system for around 25 years and we all have a complex network of cannabinoid receptors. The ECS is responsible for keeping our body in balance or homeostasis and our own body produces cannabinoids to maintain this. However, if our body is deficient in producing enough cannabinoids, this is where taking CBD from mother nature works in harmony with our body to top up the level of cannabinoids in our body to restore balance.
There is still a lot more to understand about the ECS but it is already known that it has a major impact on our physiological function; sleep, pain, inflammation, appetite, memory, mood and even reproduction.
There are two types of cannabinoid receptors found throughout the body (CB1 and CB2), but they are most abundant in the brain and immune system. Because your ECS is responsible for making sure your entire body is working optimally, its activity has been referenced alongside many diseases; from neurological disorders to arthritis and even to cancer.
