CBD Oil Benefits for the Mind and Body
How Does CBD Oil Work?
Usually the method of extracting the oil from the plant for consumption is done using CO2; a temperature control applied to force concentrated CO2 through the plant. As such, the CBD molecules are confined from other plant nutrients and compounds. Thus avoiding ruining the final product, leaving a pure, distilled form of CBD which can then be put cautiously in food-safe oils.
All cannabinoids, including CBD, produce effects in the body by attaching to certain receptors. Our brains have specific receptors designed to accept cannabinoids, known as CB1 and CB2.
Such receptors are responsible for the consumption of cannabinoid molecules into your system. Resulting in psychoactive and immune responses corresponding with cannabis consumption.
When these receptors are activated within the body, serotonin and adenosine receptors are reached. Thus allowing your mood to enhance and regulate your central nervous system. The brain can then suppress perceptions of pain and reduce stress on the mind and body. CB1 receptors in the brain affect;
Coordination and movement
Emotions and mood
Memories and other functions
Whereas CB2 receptors are more common in the immune system which affect inflammation and pain.
