Pairing CB1, CB2 and CBD for regulating the body
In humans, the job of the endocannabinoid system (ECS) is to regulate your body so you can live comfortably.
It is responsible for all your sleeping patterns, eating, and even social habits, as well as controlling inflammation (especially of the skin) and pain. It aids neurons by elevating hormone levels that are too low or decreasing ones that are overabundant.
Receptors on the surface of neurons and cells can receive messages from other cells, and instruct the inside to respond appropriately. The two receptors that are the focus of this post are CB1 and CB2.
CB1 receptors are most commonly found in the brain and are in charge of your sleep, mood, diet and pain.
CB2 receptors, however, are distributed more evenly around the body and can be found most notably closer to the skin. They help heal damaged skin cells and dispose of old ones.
If there is an imbalance in any of the above, it can cause health issues.
That is why taking CBD can sometimes help if your body isn’t functioning properly. It interacts with your CB1 and CB2 receptors the same way your endocannabinoids do. The benefits may include:
Less skin inflammation
If your body attacks itself, CBD can help march in and clean up the affected areas.
Lower pain sensitivity
CBD can provide longer lasting pain relief by dimming the chemicals that instruct your body to feel pain and elevate the opposing chemicals that make you feel good.
CB1 receptors can sometimes over- or under-compensate, so assisting them with CBD can help you gain or lose weight in a more controlled manner.
Sleep pattern regulation
If your sleep is interrupted through pain, anxiety or insomnia, CBD can help regulate it.
Using CBD to help receptors become more aware of their surroundings, some mood disorders such as anxiety and depression can be better managed.
As with all supplements, our chewable CBD tablets should be used gradually, starting with a small dose and monitoring the effects.
