Flat River Hemp Oil How CBD works in the body. Posted on Oct 1 2020 by Paigedellafranca@gmail.com
Scientists first found out how CBD and endogenous cannabinoids work in the body by researching the metabolic pathways of THC. With DNA sequencing technology the National Institute of Mental Health was able to map the encoding process of cannabinoids in the brain. This profound discovery then led to CB1 and CB2 receptors being located throughout the body. These components were then referred to as the Endocannabinoid System.
So what biological processes is the Endocannabinoid System responsible for? The Endocannabinoid System can also be referred to as a homeostatic modulator. Homeostatic modulation is your body’s built in “default” setting so to speak. Homeostasis is when your body is completely balanced; mentally, physically and emotionally. This has also been referred to as your body’s state of flow. That means your ability to have a good nights sleep, handle a stressful work week and remember your kids busy schedule are all activities related to you Endocannabinoid System functioning optimally.
Most people produce inadequate amounts of endogenous cannabinoids, hence the need for CBD supplementation. If you take a CBD supplement this helps your Endocannabinoid System function optimally, making you the best YOU. For daily supplementation, Flat River Infusions recommends our 300mg Full Spectrum Tincture.
