CBD works within our body to activate our regulatory system in the body known as the endocannabinoid system.
Did you know that your body produces its own cannabinoids similar to CBD?
These endogenous cannabinoids are a part of a system that acts as the “sole control” of the body. This system is designed to work with CBD! The endogenous cannabinoid system, or endocannabinoid system (ECS), has been recently discovered to activate the naturally occurring cannabinoids and cannabinoid receptor sites throughout your entire body! Wow!! Just envision what this could feel like when taking internally?
There are two receptors that make up the endocannabinoid system, the CB1, and CB2 receptors. CB1 receptors are found mostly in the nervous system, connective tissues, gonads, glands, and organs. CB2 receptors are primarily found in the immune system and the structures associated with healthy immune functioning. Unlike THC, which is an unnatural stimulant of the CB1 and CB2 receptors, CBD does not affect the CB1 and CB2 receptors directly. Rather, CBD signals the body’s natural endogenous cannabinoids to activate those receptors to do more of what they normally do
With these cannabinoid receptor sites spread throughout our entire bodies, you can only imagine the importance of having these receptors working properly to keep this important internal system functioning to protect you.
