You’ve no doubt heard the buzz surrounding Cannabidiol, or as most persons refer to it, CBD. Let’s take a look at how CBD works first, to best understand CBD Benefits.
CBD is a cannabinoid – a class of compounds in the cannabis plant that act on cannabinoid receptors in the body, and these cannabinoid receptors in turn make up your endocannabinoid system.
Now some of you may be scratching your heads, as there’s a good chance that when you were studying the nervous, digestive and other systems in school, this one never quite popped up on the syllabus.
That’s because this integral Endocannabinoid system hadn’t been discovered until the mid-1990’s.
Your endocannabinoid system is closely tied to all others, especially the central and peripheral nervous systems. The receptors that make up this network are involved in a variety of physiological processes, such as pain, mood and memory.
