CBD is now one of the most popular health products in the world. CBD stands for cannabidiol. This is a non-psychoactive compound that comes from our leafy, resinous friend the cannabis flower. Its properties tend to mimic the properties of our bodies’ own endocannabinoids. Endocannabinoids are part of their own regulatory system in the body. They work by stimulating receptors responsible for different functions throughout the body. Sometimes they allow an increase of activity and sometimes the decrease the activity.
Cannabinoids are agonists that bind to special receptors in our cells, called cannabinoid receptors.Certain receptors are heavily concentrated in the central nervous system while others are found in almost every organ of the body. Cannabinoid receptors are even found in the skin, digestive tract, and even in the reproductive organs.
The two types of receptors CBD’s hit are; CB1 receptors and CB2 receptors. CB1 receptors are mostly responsible for regulating psychoactivity, while CB2 receptors more so regulate the immune response. So, when the body ingests CBD’s, they go about acting and stimulating these receptors in your body, basically boosting (to a large degree), your body’s own capability of self-healing in a vast number of ways.
