How does CBD Affect the Body?

The Endocannabinoid System includes endocannabinoids, the enzymes that help make them and break them down, and the receptors that endocannabinoids bind to. The Endocannabinoid System helps modulate the regulation of homeostasis across all major systems within the body, ensuring all systems operate in concert with one another. The Endocannabinoid System assists with fine-tuning most of our physiological functions, promoting homeostasis which affects the physiological functions listed below:

  • Sleep

  • Appetite

  • Pain

  • Inflammation

  • Memory

  • Mood

  • Reproduction

SUPPORT YOUR DIGESTIVE SYSTEM

CBD has been known to help alleviate digestive issues by interacting with the Endocannabinoid System To help with inflammation. Endocannabinoids work with cannabinoid receptors which are mainly found in the brain and gut. When the GI tract or any organ in the digestive system is inflamed, these receptors bind with cannabinoids and begin to reduce the inflammation. Studies have shown that CBD may help in preventing the increase of gut permeability caused by inflammation by binding with receptors to activate their anti-inflammatory properties
