How does CBD work?
The human body has two receptors for cannabinoids the CB1 and CB2 receptors. Although both are found all over the body, CB1 receptors are present in the brain and deal with pain, movement, cognitive function, and mood. CB2 receptors are more common in the immune system and affect pain and inflammation, among other things. THC attaches to the CB1 receptors, whereas CBD interacts with the CB2 receptors. Unlike THC which attaches to receptors, CBD does not attach to the CB2 receptor. Rather, researchers believe that CBD influences the body’s use of endocannabinoids (promoting homeostasis).
Will CBD work for me?
CBD has not been approved by the FDA, so CBD companies cannot make health claims. However, the top reasons our customers cite for using CBD include pain, inflammation, anxiety, and problems sleeping. We recommend trying a CBD regimen for at least 7-10 days to see individual results.
