HOW DOES CBD WORK?
It’s because of your ECS!
The endocannabinoid system is a complex network of cell receptors and neurotransmitters that are responsible for maintaining balance in your body. Spread throughout the entire body, the largest concentrations exist in the central and peripheral nervous systems, and in the immune system. The ECS improves the communication between all those systems. THC and CBD both interact with your endocannabinoid system in powerful but very different ways!
Cannabidiol (CBD) is the non-intoxicating component of the cannabis plant, often referred to as hemp. CBD doesn’t have a strong binding affinity for the two cannabinoid receptors (CB1 and CB2), but it does act through various receptor-independent pathways delaying the reuptake of other neurotransmitters and inhibiting the binding abilities of other proteins. This may seem like psychobabble, but as a real world example, when the CBD influences the TRPV1 (transient receptor potential cation channel subfamily V member 1), it effectively blocks pain signals from reaching the rest of the body.
We can’t make medical claims in regards to cannabidiol, or the effectiveness of CBD products, but we recommend doing further research into the benefits of this amazing plant and how it may benefit you!
