CBD has the ability to act on cannabinoid receptors that are part of the Endocannabinoid System (ECS). Plant cannabinoids, also known as phytocannabinoids, bind with this system which helps regulate certain vital functions of the body, including sleep, appetite, immune, pleasure, pain, inflammation, and more. When the ECS is in sync, the human body is able to achieve what is called homeostasis, which means your body is operating optimally.
Unfortunately, when the body is under stress, illness, or injury, your body may not produce enough endocannabinoids to fulfill communication requirements. The system then becomes unbalanced and communication deteriorates. Much like a daily vitamin, CBD, one of the many cannabinoids found in cannabis plants, supplements the Endocannabinoid System, which plays a vital role in one’s overall health and wellbeing. Thus, daily supplementation of hemp-derived CBD can support the functionality of the Endocannabinoid System.
