3. What does CBD do and how?
There is a newly discovered system in your body called the Endocannibinoid System (like your Circulatory System or your Nervous System) that has receptors inside your body and on your skin (See picture top ). This system stabilizes your internal body and creates balance, known as homeostatis. It regulates temperature, mood, immune system, pain, sleep, memory, and appetite.
The receptors work like a lock; Cannabinoids (CBD & others) are the key. They help regulate, bring balance and stabilize the body so it functions correctly.
