BENEFITS OF CBD
CBD oil diversity
The benefits of CBD are numerous. It interacts with the body’s endocannabinoid system which balances nearly every cell in the body. CBD acts as a natural analgesic and is more bioavailable to your body than pharmaceutical pain relievers. Also, CBD acts as a natural anti-inflammatory, again with fewer side effects than drugs. And, CBD boosts the immune system too.
In short, CBD works inside and out of the body, skin to skeleton. Your body needs CBD. It even produces cannabinoids like it, on demand, within the body to keep all systems balanced.
But how does CBD work?
Cannabinoids are chemical compounds which affect the brains and bodies of animals. And, these compounds can come from plants like hemp, or within the human body itself. The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a series of special receptors throughout the body of all complex animals. Plant cannabinoids (phytocannabinoids) interact with the ECS primarily through these receptors.
These receptors are called CB1 and CB2. CB1 receptors are concentrated in the brain. CB2 receptors are primarily in the gastrointestinal system and anatomical regions having to do with the immune system.
Cannabinoids have also been shown to be “non-specific to their targets.” So, this means that in addition to interacting with CB1 & CB2 receptors, cannabinoids show direct interaction with a wide variety of other structures in the body too. And, this includes transporter molecules, enzymes, cell membranes and ion channels. Between this and ECS receptors being found on nearly every cell in the human body, it’s clear that cannabinoids have a profound impact on a wide variety of symptoms and conditions.
CBD benefits are diverse
Cannabidiol (CBD) has numerous benefits because it affects all parts of the body, brains to bone. It has been used to treat seizures, chronic pain, neurological disorders, psychological disorders and physical maladies of all kinds. But the benefits of CBD are still being discovered. CBD for skin care is another growing area of benefit.
