CBD AND THE BODY
How Does CBD Affect Your Body?
I’m sure you’ve heard someone you know talk about how CBD is helpful to them. Actually, hundreds of thousands use CBD every single day and that number is growing exponentially every year.
CBD interacts with receptors in the brain and throughout the body.CB1 receptors are in the brain primarily and CB2 receptors are found mostly in the immune and gastrointestinal system.CB2 can be found in the brain but they are not as dense as CB1 and vice versa. These receptors work within a system, known as the endocannabinoid system.
All cannabinoids, including CBD, produce a wide array of effects in the body by attaching to these receptors in a variety of cells. CBD works by modulating the transcription of over 1100 genes.
This modulating process helps signal the molecules to naturally reduce inflammation in our Central nervous system and immune system. This process is thought to restore homeostasis to both your immune and central nervous systems.
