How Does CBD Interact With the Body?
There is often confused among customers and people on how CBD interacts with the body, in this short segment we will be discussing the main way on how CBD interacts with one's body and how it can benefit you.
To start this off, CBD interacts with the body via the endocannabinoid system or ECS. The endocannabinoid system is a biological system that is found in all mammals and is directly involved in a whole array of biological process that includes everything from sleep,memory to even your immune response. With this system there are two key receptors which are the CB1 and CB2 , these receptors are built to interact with the endocannabinoids. Our bodies are constantly creating these natural cannabidiols in our brain. In other words, the ECS works to keep your body in a stable condition where everything is working at its best, despite what might be going on outside you.
How Does CBD and THC Interact with the ECS
Having these receptors in our body plays a huge role on how CBD and THC interacts with our ECS.
With that said, let's dive a little deeper on how THC and CBD work directly with our CB1 and CB2 receptors.
THC binds with the CB1 receptors in your brain, thus giving the users the sensation of feeling “high”. Because THC has a strong focus on latching onto CB1 receptors in your brain it gives the users theroux results such as pain relief and it also helps with sleeplessness.
On the other hand , CBD can interact with and bind to both types of receptors; the Cb1 receptors in your brain as well as the CB2 receptors throughout your body. As a result the beneficial effects be distributed event throughout your body relieving mental conditions like anxiety as well as pain and inflammation. On top of that because CBD does not solely focus on latching to the CB1 receptors it will not give the users the sensation of feeling high or stoned.
Homeostasis plays an important role in our overall health. Since external cannabinoids like CBD can bond to our cannabinoid receptors just as well as the endocannabinoids our bodies naturally produce, researchers are finding that CBD products can have wide-ranging therapeutic benefits for various health issues, including anxiety, insomnia, cancer, and more.
