CBD works by signaling the cannabinoid receptors inside your body. Cannabinoid receptors are found throughout the body and are part of the endocannabinoid system. The endocannabinoid system is involved in your body’s appetite, mood, memory and pain sensation. Cannabinoid receptors work from endocannabinoids or plant cannabinoids that are found in CBD. These receptors are separated into CB1 and CB2.
CB1 receptors are found in one of the body systems known as the nervous system, as these receptors affect the nervous system, the nervous system affects the liver, lungs and kidneys. When the receptors in these areas are activated they affect the mind to affect anything that is not going right in these parts of the body. This occurs from signaling the neurotransmitter, a chemical in the nerves of your body to release to other nerves, fixing the wrong that may be occurring in that area. CB1 receptors focus more on controlling your body’s temperature and can influence the body’s concentration, appetite, memory, pain tolerance.
CB2 receptors are found in the immune system and the hematopoietic blood cells, which are the cells that release to other cells. The process for these receptors are similar to the CB1 receptors, when the receptors are activated they release from the hematopoietic blood cells into other cells to help with pain, various diseases, including neurological, along with liver and kidney problems and so much more!
