How CBD Works
CBD (Cannabidiol) works by interacting within our body’s Endocannabinoid System. Experts believe that this system regulates physiological and cognitive processes, Appetite, Pain-Sensation, Inflammation, Muscle Control, Energy, Stress Response, Mood, Motivation and Reward, Metabolism, Thermoregulation, Focus, Sleep, Memory, and in mediating the effect of CBD (Cannabinoids).
Two primary endocannabinoid receptors are CB1 and CB2. CB1 receptors are found predominantly in the brain, nervous system, peripheral organs, and tissues. They are the main molecular target of the endocannabinoid ligand (binding molecule), anandamide. CB2 receptors are predominantly in the body. One other main endocannabinoid, 2-Arachidonoylglycerol (2-AG), is active in both cannabinoid receptors, along with its own mimetic Phytocannabinoid. CBD 2-AG is involved in the regulation of appetite, immune system functions, and pain management.
