CBD oil can do a lot to help the body, but how does it accomplish so much? Thanks to a special cell-signaling complex in the body called the Endocannabinoid system, Cannabidiol (CBD) can provide relief to a number of aches and bodily problems. Just what is this special system?
The Endocannabinoid System
Cannabis has been a staple of medical treatments for millennia, going as far back in recorded history as 2,900 B.C.E. In ancient times, people would use the plant for pain relief, insomnia, gastrointestinal issues, and more. But, the Endocannabinoid system was only recently discovered, in 1992. While researching the effects of CBD and THC on the body, scientists discovered that there was an entire system in the body built to work with those molecules, and many other cannabinoids. This system is built into our nervous system, and works in tandem with it to ensure that our bodies are working properly. In fact, all mammals have this incredible system.
What Does it Do?
Cannabinoids in your body interact with special receptors in the Endocannabinoid system. When you introduce Cannabinoids to your body, they interact with and strengthen our receptors. Well-maintained receptors can help keep our bodies healthy and balanced. Known as CB1 and CB2 receptors, they help regulate mood, pain, appetite, memory, and more. The two receptors affect different parts of the body, but a few areas overlap. Both receptors affect the eyes, heart, pancreas, bones, and digestive tract.
CB1 receptors work closely with the brain, and can help warn the body of bacteria, viruses, and other diseases. When viruses or bacteria are present, the receptors help tell the brain about the ensuing inflammation. This tells the brain where the body needs healing. Additionally, CB1 receptors focus on the maintenance of the thyroid, adrenal glands, liver, and the reproductive system.
CB2 receptors are responsible for answering the call to fight off infection. These receptors signal the white blood cells and the immune system to fight off viruses and diseases that cause inflammation. Above all, this helps return the body to a state of homeostasis (balance). Additionally, CB2 receptors work with the tonsils, thymus, spleen, and blood to help maintain the body’s functions.
CBD Oil’s Role in the Endocannabinoid System
CBD Oil derived from hemp helps nourish our CB1 and CB2 receptors, which builds our immunity and reduces inflammation. The longer you take CBD oil, the more your receptors will become stronger.
