The Endocannabinoid System

The endocannabinoid system plays a vital role in physiological processes such as mood, memory and pain. The system is split into CB1 and CB2 receptors.

CBD binds with these receptors like a lock and key, activating CB1 receptors’ role in memory processing, motor regulation, pain sensation, mood, and sleep, and CB2 receptors’ response that fights inflammation, which can reduce pain and minimize damage to tissues.

what is

cbd?

CBD, or cannabidiol, is a heavily studied cannabis compound that has shown significant promise in terms of medical benefits, but with no psychoactive effects. It is extracted from industrial hemp and connects with your body's endocannabinoid system. CBD seems to have a positive effect on mood, appetite, cognitive function, pain, movement, and much more by linking with CB1 and CB2 receptors in the human body’s endocannabinoid system.
