Let’s get one thing straight. CBD is non-psychoactive. It will not get you high. It will, however, interact with something called the Endocannabinoid System (ECS), which is a chain of receptors in the body. Studies show that when stimulated by CBD, the ECS in turn supports bodily functions such as mood, the brain and nervous system.
The ECS is involved in the regulation of a large range of physiological functions in the body, including mood, memory, fertility, pain sensation and appetite. This happens when a cannabinoid like CBD binds to an ECS receptor in the body. It acts as an antagonist, which means that it activates the receptor to produce a biological tissue response.
TO UNDERSTAND HOW CBD WORKS WE MUST FIRST NOW ABOUT THE ENDOCANNABINOID SYSTEM (ECS) WHICH IS PRESENT IN ALL OF OUR BODIES AND THE BODIES OF ALL MAMMALS.
HOW DOES CBD WORK?
The ECS regulates several essential processes in the body with its receptors and the most
important of these are called CB1 and CB2. As briefly discussed above, the central nervous
system, (brain and spinal cord) are controlled by CB1 receptors and the peripheral nervous system
(nerves, limbs and rest of the body), are controlled by CB2 receptors.
CB1 receptors are mostly found in the brain and have a direct effect on mood, appetite, and pain.
CB2 receptors are spread throughout the body and largely influence skin health and inflammation.
When CBD triggers the CB1 & CB2 receptors, it maximises the effects of the endocannabinoids
your body naturally produces.
CBD PRODUCTS BY
METHOD OF INGESTION
The most common method of taking CBD is to take a product by mouth. This means swallowing the CBD with food and drinks, capsules or eating pre-made CBD containing edibles. When CBD is wallowed, it enters the digestive system before being absorbed
Edibles are a great way to consume CBD. The CBD is ingested and absorbed through the stomach lining like any other consumed good. You’ll usually feel results within an hour or two, and effects will be experienced over several hours.
CBD EasyMix allows users to mix CBD with any chosen food or beverage item which makes it the most versatile CBD product on the market.
