How does CBD provide relief?
The endocannabinoid system in an individual’s body is equipped with cannabis receptors. The two major receptors are CB1 and CB2.
CB1 receptors are found mainly in the brain and are accountable for body movement, pain perception, emotions, thought, mood, appetite, memory and other processes.
CB2 receptors are mostly found in the immune system. Pain and inflammation are influenced by these receptors.
CBD does not bind to either receptor directly, it encourages the body to utilize more of its own cannabinoids to regulate the body functions.
