Cannabidiol (CBD) interacts with the Endocannabinoid System (ECS) in the human body through its cannabinoid receptors, found in the central nervous system and immune system.
The ECS has unique functions throughout the body, especially in the brain and immune system. It has an important regulatory role in the secretion of hormones related to reproductive functions and response to stress.
ECS Receptors are the most common receptors in the brain and second most common receptors in the body. Once CBD is ingested and travels throughout the body, CBD interacts directly with the body’s naturally occurring endocannabinoid receptors.
