Knowledge is power! If you're interested in the benefits of CBD, having an understanding of how it works will help you decide how CBD is best for you. You can be confident in your choice as CBD is natural and the plant based "partner" of what our own bodies make.

So how does CBD work?

All of us have endocannabinoid system (ECS) in our bodies which is part of our nervous system. The ECS is webbed throughout the whole body, mainly in the brain and spinal cord and reaching out to the extremities.

Endocannabinoid system

Our ECS helps with "homeostasis" (a scientific word for balance) in many areas: our moods, stress and focus, sleep and discomforts. When we get out of our ebb + flow, cannabinoids can jump in to return the balance. Sometimes our bodies don't make enough endonannabinoids - so an external plant based source like CBD is a great friend.

How does CBD work with the ECS?

The CB1 and CB2 receptors in the ECS are message receivers and are responsible for receiving the right substances, called endocannabinoids that can return "balance". If your body does not produce enough of them or your body is stressed (actual stress, or maybe an inflamed joint etc), external CBD can come to your rescue. The cannabinoids bind with the right receptors, either blocking or activating, like a key into a specific door lock.

CBD veterans and many scientific studies are sharing the success stories of the benefits of CBD bring back to your best version of you…and back to your regular ebb + flow.
