How CBD works?
CBD is thought to interact with receptors in the central nervous system, and some evidence points toward a calming effect brought on by CBD. It may also serve as an anti-inflammatory and may produce pain-relieving effects that help with pain management. The exact mechanisms are still being studied, but research suggests that the potential therapeutic uses can be also analgesic, anxiolytic, and antipsychotic.
CBD, or cannabidiol, works by interacting with the body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS), which is a complex network of cell receptors and signaling molecules that help regulate a wide range of physiological processes, including mood, pain, appetite, and immune function. CBD interacts with the ECS by modulating the activity of the cannabinoid receptors. Unlike THC, another compound found in cannabis, CBD does not bind directly to the cannabinoid receptors, but instead works by enhancing the activity of the body’s own endocannabinoids.
In addition to its effects on the ECS, CBD also interacts with other receptors and signaling pathways in the body, including serotonin receptors, which are involved in regulating mood and anxiety, and vanilloid receptors, which are involved in pain perception.
