Why is CBD so Effective?







             In the 1990s while researching CBD and THC and their effects on animals and

             humans, it was discovered that we all have an internal system that functions to

             keep our bodies in equilibrium – a balanced and optimal internal environment.



             Research revealed that two cannabinoids that are produced in our bodies, known

             as endocannabinoids, and two cannabinoids produced from the marijuana and

             hemp plants (THC and CBD) can trigger this system into action.



             Due to the effect these 4 cannabinoids have on this newly discovered system, it

             was named the Endocannabinoid System (ECS).



             When something is operating outside of its normal range, our body activates our

             ECS to help correct the abnormality. The ECS does this via cannabinoid receptors

             found in select tissues throughout our bodies. We have two primary

             endocannabinoid receptors:




                 CB1 receptors, which are primarily located in our central nervous system (brain

                 and nerves of the spinal cord).


                 CB2 receptors, which are primarily located n our peripheral nervous system

                 (nerves in our extremities), the digestive system, and specialized cells in the

                 immune system.




             By supplementing our bodies with CBD, we can supercharge our ECS into action to

             help it resolve or lessen the impact of our issues, and return our body to its normal

             range and optimal function.
