If CBD doesn’t make you high what does it do?

Curious about CBD and what it actually does? You’re not alone.

In this blog, we’ll delve into this non-psychoactive cannabis compound, its health benefits, and how it interacts with your body. 

Understanding the endocannabinoid system (ECS), responsible for maintaining balance, is crucial to grasp how CBD works. CBD primarily interacts with two types of receptors within the ECS: CB1 and CB2 receptors. CB1 receptors are mainly located in the brain and central nervous system, while CB2 receptors are more prevalent in the immune system and peripheral tissues. This interaction can modulate various physiological processes, including pain perception, immune response, mood regulation, and more.

Benefits of CBD

Pain Management: CBD's potential as a natural pain reliever has garnered considerable attention. Studies suggest that CBD may alleviate pain by affecting the ECS's receptors, ultimately reducing inflammation and interacting with neurotransmitters associated with pain signalling.

Anxiety and Stress Reduction: CBD has shown promise in promoting relaxation and reducing anxiety and stress. It appears to influence serotonin receptors in the brain, which play a role in mood regulation. This interaction may contribute to the compound's potential anti-anxiety effects.

Sleep Improvement: For individuals struggling with sleep disorders, CBD might offer a solution. By affecting receptors related to sleep-wake cycles, CBD could help regulate sleep patterns and improve the overall quality of sleep.

Neurological Disorders: CBD's impact on neurological conditions such as epilepsy has been widely studied. Epidiolex, a CBD-based medication, is approved for treating certain forms of epilepsy, showcasing CBD's potential as an anticonvulsant.

Anti-Inflammatory Properties: CBD's interaction with the immune system has led to investigations into its anti-inflammatory effects. This suggests potential benefits for conditions involving chronic inflammation, such as arthritis.

Skin Health: Topical CBD products have gained popularity for their potential to address skin issues like acne, psoriasis, and eczema. The compound's anti-inflammatory properties and influence on sebum production make it a promising candidate for skincare.
