How Does CBD Work?

Posted byChristopher27/08/20180 Comment(s)

CBD is one of over 100 compounds known as cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. These substances act on our 'Endocannabinoid system', part of the nervous system that helps regulate various processes, including our Sleep cycle, Appetite, Pain sensation, Mood and Memory.

Cannabinoids like CBD and THC bind to receptors throughout the body and brain sometimes activating and sometimes suppressing or blocking them.

Research shows that CBD has appetite-suppressing properties, unlike the famous cannabis-induced 'munchies', as well as Anti Anxiety and Anti-Psychotic properties, as opposed to the paranoia and psychosis induced by high doses of THC. it's these properties that have led to people CBD oil to try to alleviate problems such as Insomnia and anxiety.
