You’ve no doubt heard the buzz surrounding Cannabidiol, or as most persons refer to it, CBD. Let’s take a look at how CBD works first, to best understand CBD Benefits.
CBD is a cannabinoid – a class of compounds in the cannabis plant that act on cannabinoid receptors in the body, and these cannabinoid receptors in turn make up your endocannabinoid system.
Now some of you may be scratching your heads, as there’s a good chance that when you were studying the nervous, digestive and other systems in school, this one never quite popped up on the syllabus.
That’s because this integral Endocannabinoid system hadn’t been discovered until the mid-1990’s.
Your endocannabinoid system is closely tied to all others, especially the central and peripheral nervous systems. The receptors that make up this network are involved in a variety of physiological processes, such as pain, mood and memory.
How CBD works
Endocannabinoids are found everywhere in your body including your organs, connective tissues, skin, glands. Each tissue has it’s homeostasis maintained by the endocannabinoid system.
The benefit of adding external cannabinoids(CBD) into your system is more balance, homeostasis and regulation for your cells. You are basically getting a better maintenance plan!
So how does this shake out in terms of outward benefits?
Well, just imagine how you would feel and what you would look like with strong, regulated cells. New studies are coming out everyday for the benefits of CBD.
