CB1 and CB2 receptors
The endocannabinoid system comprises of two types of receptors, CB1 And CB2, which serve distinct functions in human health and well being. CB1 receptors are primarily found in the brain and central nervous system whereas CB2 receptors are mostly in the peripheral organs and cells associated with the immune system. CBD, CBN and THC fit like a lock and key into existing human receptors. THC can fit into the CB1 Receptor, CBN into CB2 Receptor and CBD into both CB1 And CB2 receptors.
Some of the benefits of activating CB1 Receptors can be:
- Helping with depression
- Lowering intestinal inflammation
- Reducing blood pressure
- Helping with anxiety
Some of the benefits of activating CB2 Receptors can be related to pretty much every type of human disease and even a role in the liver and kidney function, bone and skin health, cancer and pain-related illnesses.
Firstly, all products are not intended to diagnose, treat or cure any disease. It is recommended to check with a physician before starting a new dietary supplement program.
The endocannabinoid system's purpose is to respond to endogenous cannabinoids produced within the human body.
During their research, scientists have learned that the system will also recognize and respond to cannabinoids from external sources, including the phytocannabinoid cannabidiol (CBD).
According to the National Institute of Health, manipulating the endocannabinoid system by introducing external cannabinoids like CBD could possibly support the treatment of a variety of medical ailments.
CBD related studies are still in their infancy. That said, there’s plenty of promise in the research and studies that have already been conducted on CBD.
