CBD has such a multipurpose effect on the body because of its integration with our endocannabinoid system (ECS) - a network of receptors that communicate with many different body systems including our immune system, the central nervous system, brain, organs, glands and connective tissue. The ECS regulates homeostasis throughout the entire body by influencing various body functions and feelings such as heart health, sleep, appetite, hormone balance, digestion, mood, memory, neuro-protection and pain management. As all imbalance, sickness, stress and tension originate from inflammation, CBD can be a powerful vehicle to calm and relax the body. CBD works differently for each body based on diet, lifestyle, environment and health conditions.
CBD among other cannabinoids are expanding a whole new field of scientific research for its far-reaching benefits. This is just the beginning and we’re excited to continue to learn what this plant can do for our health!
