The Basics of CBD
There are all sorts of receptors located throughout the body. They make up the endocannabinoid system (ECS) and through a complex signaling system, work toward maintaining homeostasis. These receptors interact with the chemical compounds or cannabinoids produced by the cannabis plant. CBD and other cannabinoids mimic natural compounds generated by the body, opening up amazing therapeutic potential.

While research is ongoing, we know that CBD affects cannabinoid receptor activity and promotes the production of the body’s natural endocannabinoids. CBD even goes a step further, interacting with serotonin, dopamine, and opioid receptors. We’ve also seen that CBD can actually lessen THC’s stimulation of CB1 receptors, which are responsible for the “high” sensation.
