CBD Hemp Oil is beneficial for the naturally occurring endocannabinoid system (ECS) in all peoples. The ECS is involved in regulating many functions within the body which include: mood, memory, appetite and the sleep/wake cycle. It’s also a neuro protectant. The ECS is controlled by 2 types of receptors called the CB1 and CB2 receptors.
CBD as well as other cannabinoids works directly with the ECS system by “antagonizing” the CB1 and CB2 receptors. CB1 receptors are one of the most abundant receptors in the brain and are found in almost every neuron in a mammal’s body. CB2 receptors are found almost exclusively in the immune system.
Cannabidiol (CBD) and related cannabinoids found in the hemp plant are the only compounds in the natural world that work with these receptors. According to scientists, this means that the body has evolved to require CBD in order to function and work at optimal levels of health.
Another important scientific find is that these receptors when activated by CBD, allow for two-way communication between the various body systems. Previously, scientists thought that the body’s signals went only in one direction. This two-way communication allows the body to more effectively communicate with the brain regarding where it is needing more support, thus furthering CBDs ability to helping you live the healthiest life possible.
