Health Benefits of CBD Oil
CBD has gained popularity in recent years and is the focus of many scientific and medical experiments. The therapeutic properties of CBD are being tested and confirmed by scientists and doctors around the world. Scientists are studying the effects of CBD on the body’s own Endocannabinoid System (ECS), a collection of cell receptors and corresponding molecules in the human body, responsible for regulating and maintaining many key physiological functions. Maintaining a balanced ECS helps humans experience homeostasis or, balance, in simpler terms.
CBD Oil Effects on Your Endocannabinoid System
Under the assault of stress, anxiety, inflammation, immunity, pain, mood, or illness, your body’s own Endocannabinoid System (ECS) may not produce enough endocannabinoids to fulfill your body’s requirement. Your ECS can then become unbalanced and deficient. Just like a daily vitamin can provide a boost for the body’s lack of a specific vitamin, scientists believe that hemp-derived CBD can provide a natural supplement to the deficiencies in the body’s Endocannabinoid System.
Support Cannabinoid Receptors Naturally with CBD
The Endocannabinoid System (ECS) in your body is composed of endocannabinoids, which naturally bind to cannabinoid receptors (CBRs) that are expressed throughout your nervous system, as well as your body’s peripheral organs and tissues. Two primary cannabinoid receptors in your body are called CB1 and CB2. In addition to responding to cannabinoids naturally produced by your body, scientists have learned that your receptors will also recognize and respond to cannabinoids from external sources, including the phytocannabinoid cannabidiol (CBD). By stimulating the Endocannabinoid System, CBD promotes homeostasis, reduces pain sensation, and decreases inflammation.
