So just how does CBD work in the body? Let's dive right in!
The Endocannabinoid system (ECS) plays a major role in balancing our bodies’ most important functions from sleep, to mood, to appetite, and more.
The ECS was discovered in the 1990’s. Initially, research showed endocannabinoid receptors were only present in the brain and nerves, but have since been found throughout the entire body including our skin. The endocannabinoid system is involved in a number of processes including pain, memory, mood, appetite, stress, sleep, metabolism and the immune system.
Your body naturally produces its own endocannabinoids to support this system, but just like with any other nutrient, we could develop a deficiency and may need extra support. This is where CBD comes in!
