How Does CBD Work To Help Your Body?
The endocannabinoid system’s most important function is to maintain balance and homeostasis of almost everything going on in your body.
This system is made up of the CB1 and CB2 receptors, and these receptors are activated by anandamide and 2-Arachidonoylglycerol. Anandamide stimulates the CB1 receptors; while 2-AG stimulates both the CB1 and CB2 receptors.
CB1 activation controls several physiological functions like sleeping, appetite, vomiting, mood, pain perception, and memory; CB2 activation controls inflammation since these receptors are predominantly found in the immune system.
Now, THC binds to the CB1 receptors. This is how THC produces its therapeutic effects. It is also how THC produces its euphoric, psychoactive effects.
CBD, unlike THC, has a low binding affinity with the cannabinoid receptors. This means that CBD cannot directly activate these receptors to produce the therapeutic effects of THC, anandamide, or 2-AG.
Instead, CBD binds to different receptors and activates them to produce its therapeutic effects.
What Make Green Roads CBD So Pure?
As CBD is isolated from the plant material and exits the high-pressure environment inside the extraction machine, all of the CO2 evaporates, because it’s no longer at a supercritical pressure
This leaves behind a solvent-free extract containing only the purest select phytocannabinoids and terpenes.
