You may have heard a great deal already about the health benefits of hemp oil and its main component CBD, especially in regard to its effects on stress, inflammation, immunity, pain, mood, and more. But to answer the question of how and why CBD works in the body means diving into a vastly complex system that doctors, scientists, and clinical researchers are only just beginning to make sense of. That is known as the endocannabinoid system. Cannabidiol (CBD) is a natural chemical found within the hemp plant that can help restore and replenish balance to your endocannabinoid system. When your endocannabinoid system is not working properly, due to stress, inflammation , etc.. your body becomes unbalanced. The receptors do not get enough cannabinoids. To rejuvenate your system and maintain balance, you may want to consider CBD. This is is a naturally occurring substance derived from plants known as phytocannabinoids.
