HOW DOES CBD WORK IN THE BODY?

SIP ON THIS | physician facts

Understanding how CBD interacts with your body is as important as understanding the health benefits.

Our bodies naturally produce endogenous cannabinoids that are broken down by natural enzymes in our body, but these endogenous cannabinoids are broken down faster than we can produce them so body gets out of balance and we do not reap the benefits of these cannabinoids.  


When we introduce CBD (an outside or exogenous cannabinoid), they attach to the enzymes that break down internal cannabinoids, which prevents the breakdown of the internal cannabinoids and CBD allows our bodies to build up our internal cannabinoids so they can do their job.  These internal cannabinoids attach themselves to receptors to block signals from occurring, which in turn sends a message to the brain that there is no pain or inflammation.
