The Science Of How CBD Works In The Body

Although cannibidiol (CBD) doesn’t make people feel high like THC does, it’s causing quite a buzz among scientists, health professionals, and medical marijuana patients. But how does CBD work in the body? Let us explain and show how the science of how CBD works in the body.

CBD-rich products are used to treat a wide range of conditions: chronic pain, cancer, Crohn’s, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, PTSD, cardiovascular disease, anxiety, antibiotic-resistant infections, multiple sclerosis, schizophrenia, and more.

The Science of CBDRELATED: Science Says Medical Marijuana Improves Quality Of Life

Studies show that the use of CBD may help reduce pain by influencing endocannabinoid receptor activity, reducing inflammation, and communicating with neurotransmitters related to pain.

  • Endocannabinoid system
    CBD interacts with the endocannabinoid system in the body. The endocannabinoid system has cannabinoid receptors located throughout the central and peripheral nervous systems. It helps regulate various bodily functions, such as pain perception, mood, sleep, and immune system response.
  • Serotonin receptors
    CBD also acts on the brain’s serotonin receptors. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter that helps regulate mood. The use of CBD increases serotonin levels in the brain. For this reason, CBD may be a viable treatment option for anxiety or depression. The effects of CBD on the brain may also help in the treatment of neurological disorders, such as epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, and Alzheimer’s disease.

Considerations

Although the use of CBD is generally safe, it can cause side effects in some cases. It can lead to a decrease in appetite, which can cause changes in weight. It can also cause diarrhea or fatigue. It interacts with several medications, so individuals should speak with a medical professional before trying CBD.
