CBD and The Endocannabinoid System
CBD eases symptoms because of its affect on the Endocannabinoid System, which is present in humans and animals. When this system doesn't function properly, our health suffers.
The Endocannabinoid System is made up of two main receptors: Cannabinoid 1 (CB1) and Cannabinoid 2 (CB2). CB1 receptors are primarily found in the brain and central nervous system. CB2 receptors are primarily found in the immune system. Stimulating the Endocannabinoid System with CBD can help restore balance (homeostasis) and manage symptoms.
Many people take CBD to help regulate inflammation, digestive problems, sleep issues, mood and more.
