How Does CBD Work?
CBD and other cannabinoids and phytocannabinoids provide a variety of wellness benefits. Nearly every organ in the body contains special receptors that interact with the endocannabinoids that our body naturally produces. This is called our endocannabinoid system. It plays an important role in many essential bodily functions, affecting our mood, appetite, memory, sleep quality, and even reproductive health and fertility.
Unlike mammals, who produce endocannabinoids, plants produce phytocannabinoids, like CBD. While much is still being learned about how cannabinoids interact with our bodies, there is much research to suggest that when we introduce CBD to our system, it can block the enzymes that break down our own endocannabinoids. This allows our body to more effectively heal itself.
Through continuing scientific research and developments in the extraction process, we can now access these powerful natural compounds fully, in potent doses, for maximum therapeutic benefits.
