How does CBD work?
After THC the most important ingredient which can be found in the cannabis plant and hemp is CBD. It is thought that cannabidiol and other cannabinoids can play an extremely important role in our body and in the bodies of animals.
This as the body possesses an endocannabinoid system which produces its own cannabinoids, the so-called endocannabinoids. These bind to receptors of the immune system amongst others. The plant cannabinoids from cannabis, called phytocannabinoids, imitate the body’s own cannabinoids, which causes these to be able to exert the same influence as the chemicals naturally present in our body.
