Now that you know that CBD is a natural , non-intoxicating chemical compound found in abundance in the HEMP plant , you may be wondering how it works , on which body systems , and what effects it produces.
THE ENDOCANNABINOID SYSTEM ( ECS )
In 1992 at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem , Israeli scientist Dr.Lumir Hanus and American researcher Dr.William Devane discovered Anandamide , and later 2AG and other cannabinoids .
These cannabinoids ( chemical neurotransmitters ) interact with cannabinoid receptors found throughout the body in the skeletal system , brain , immune system , lungs , vascular system , muscles , reproductive organs etc. These interactions aim to regulate bodily functions to achieve homeostasis ( balance and proper functioning of body processes. CBI and CB2 receptors are the target of CBD and other cannabinoids. They are found in soft tissues , muscles , bones and the peripheral nervous system. This system is named ENDOCANNABINOID SYSTEM or ECS.
WHY DO WE NEED CBD ?
Although the body naturally produces these cannabinoids , in many people not enough is produced or the receptors themselves may be damaged through stress , illness , poor diet and medicines.
Supplementing with plant based CBD aids the body to heal itself and attain it's proper balance and functioning ( homeostasis ) . CBD benefits encompass immune related disorders , nervous system disorders , and numerous other disorders.
