How CBD Oil Works in Our Body
CBD works by interacting with numerous receptors in our body. CBD targets receptors in the brain, and other major biological systems. When we talk about health, or the definition of health, we’re referring to your body being in a state of perfect balance, or homeostasis. One of the primary systems in our body that is responsible for regulation is the endocannabinoid system. The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is the messaging system that helps send signals through the body, and plays a role in maintaining your health (homeostasis). There are three parts to the endocannabinoid system. 1. Endocannabinoids. 2. Receptors. 3. Enzymes.
