How CBD Works

How CBD Works

The human nervous system contains a large number of receptor systems, including the endocannabinoid system (ECS). ECS receptors are located in the human brain and the peripheral nervous system—spinal cord and nerves—as well as in the immune system and other regions. In the brain, these receptors reside in areas responsible for perception, concentration, memory, and movement. The ECS is involved in the regulation of many physiological processes including feelings of pain, changes in mood, and appetite. Interestingly, the ECS also plays a part in the nervous system’s response to physical exercise.

CBD Alleviates Everyday Stress and Makes the Nervous System More Resilient

Receptors in the endocannabinoid system (ECS) bind to natural “cannabinoid-like” molecules produced by the nervous system called endorphins. One such endorphin is 2-Arachidonoylglycerol (2-AG), which binds to both CB1 and CB2 receptors. CBD also binds/influences these receptors and replicates the effects of 2-AG. Research has shown CBD to display antispasmodic, antipsychotic, anticonvulsant, and neuroprotective properties. As such, using CBD oil is a beneficial way to induce muscle and general relaxation. CBD is heralded for alleviating everyday stress and facilitating a more resilient nervous system.

10 Reasons Why You Should Choose CBD Oil Online in UK

Terpenes enhance the therapeutic potential of CBD oils through a synergistic process known as the “entourage effect”.  Our CBD products contain an enriched terpene profile, helping to maximize this benefit.

We set the gold standard for CBD oils, maximizing the effectiveness of the cannabinoid CBD, without the presence of waxes, fats, and chlorophyll, which give oils a black color and pasty consistency.
