BUT, HOW DOES CBD WORK?
Cannabinoids, including CBD, interact with your body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS). The ECS is a group of endogenous cannabinoid receptors located in the mammalian brain and throughout the central and peripheral nervous systems.
Numerous studies show that the ECS is directly involved in the processes that keep our bodies balanced, including appetite, pain sensation, mood, memory, immune system functions, and inflammation control.
Overall, published research concludes that the endocannabinoid system is largely responsible for managing homeostasis, the body’s natural condition of balance.
The ECS consists of neuromodulatory lipids and their receptors. Two primary endocannabinoid receptors have been identified: CB1 and CB2.
HUMAN ENDOCANNABINOID SYSTEM CB1 AND CB2
The best-known cannabinoid receptors, CB1 and CB2, are proteins that are imbedded in the cells membrane.
These surface proteins are then attached to another protein that determines the signaling direction activation or inhibition.

CB1 receptors: CB1 receptors are concentrated in the brain, central nervous system, and other parts of our bodies. CB1 receptors deal with thinking, mood, appetite, memories, pain, emotion, movement, coordination, and several other functions. THC attaches to these receptors.
CB2 receptors: CB2 receptors are mostly in the peripheral organs, especially cells associated with the immune system. CB2 receptors affect inflammation and pain. Research shows that when you ingest CBD, it interacts directly with the CB2 receptors throughout your body, stimulating your endocannabinoid system.*
