How does CBD work?
Humans, and all mammals, have a natural receptor system known as the endocannabinoid system (ECS) that allows for cellular communication and regulation.
The ECS is made up of receptors throughout our entire body: CB1 and CB2 receptors.
CBD binds to these receptors in a way that causes your body to produce more of them, so the communication between cells can be strengthened and improved.
Much of the therapeutic effect of CBD is actually carried out by your own endocannabinoid system; CBD simply promotes the normal function of the endocannabinoid system.
