The Endocannabinoid System
To understand how Cannabidiol (CBD) works you must understand the endocannabinoid system (ECS). We all have an endocannabinoid system, as do all mammals, birds, reptiles and fish.
Our bodies produce endocannabinoids to communicate with various parts of the body.
Being a phytocannabinoid, CBD is derived from a plant. It can affect our bodies in the same way and endocannabinoids.
Our bodies need cannabinoids as part of its healthy functioning, so like taking vitamins and other supplements for your health, adding CBD can become an essential part of having optimum mind and body wellness.
