How does CBD work? And what is the Endocannabinoid System (ECS)?
All mammals have an Endocannabinoid System (ECS) and our bodies produce natural endocannabinoids. CBD is a natural phytocannabinoid that works with that system. The Endocannabinoid System (ECS) is a complex system of receptors, enzymes, and biochemical pathways found throughout our bodies that help create balance (homeostasis) and regulate many bodily functions, including sleep, pain, and immune system response. Israeli scientist, Dr. Raphael Meschoulam and his team of researchers identified the ECS when studying the effects of cannabis on our systems in 1992.
Why doesn’t CBD get you high?
The Cannabis plant has 100+ compounds including the two main ones you most often hear about called THC and CBD. Our CBD is derived from the hemp strain of cannabis and contains little to no THC (less than 0.3%). THC is the compound responsible for creating the ‘high’. CBD, on the other hand, works with the other receptors in your body to provide healing and health benefits without getting you high. Using CBD for its therapeutic value makes it a great alternative to pharmaceuticals that can have negative side effects.
