How CBD Works

CBD works by interacting with the endocannabinoid system found in all humans and mammals. CBD mimics the effects of the compounds in our bodies called endogenous cannabinoids. The 2 main endogenous cannabinoids found in the human body are anandamide and 2-AG. These endocannabinoids are part of a regulatory system called the endocannabinoid system.

The discovery of the endocannabinoid system has significantly advanced our understanding of health and disease. It has major implications for nearly every area of medical science and helps to explain how and why CBD is such a versatile compound.

Endocannabinoid System and Receptors

There are two endocannabinoid receptors in the body called CB1 and CB2 receptors. CB1 and CB2 receptors are found throughout the body, while the nervous system only has CB1 receptors. CBD affects the signalling between the CB1 and CB2 receptors while THC will interact directly with both the CB1 and CB2 receptors.

The Benefits of Cannabidiol (CBD)

Many CBD users report relaxation, relief from insomnia and better control of many age related symptoms.

Different Ways To Consume CBD 

CBD can enter the body through many routes of administration, including: orally, inhalation and transdermal.




Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of over 100 cannabinoids found in the cannabis sativa L hemp plant. CBD is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid and interacts with and mimics the effects of chemicals that naturally occur inside the body. CBD binds to cannabinoid receptors to produce a wide range of physical and behavioural responses. These Cannabinoid receptors have been found in almost every cell type in the human body, which explains the seemingly endless physiological roles that the plant-based cannabinoid possesses.
