To understand how CBD works, you must first understand the system of the body that it influences. This is called the endocannabinoid system (or ECS), and it has a major effect on many of our body’s natural processes. 

The ECS was discovered by doctors in the 1990s, and there are a number of studies conducted on what it’s purpose is in the human body. We now know that the ECS system is a natural regulation system for the processes that occur in almost every part of our body, including:

  • Pain perception
  • Anxiety and Emotion
  • Sleep
  • Metabolism
  • Immune System
  • Reproductive Health
  • Homeostasis
