What does CBD do?
The cannabinoids in CBD interact with the user's Endocannabinoid system (ECS). The ECS makes our bodies very receptive to the potential health benefits of cannabinoids. it’s on immune cells in our bloodstream, all over our nervous system, on the entire axis of the spinal cord, and in virtually every cell in the brain. There are even cannabinoid receptors in our skin.The ECS system regulates pain, stress, appetite, energy, cardiovascular function, reward perception, reproduction, and sleep, to name a few. And, the role of the endocannabinoid system is to keep our bodies in a state of complete balance called homeostasis. ie. It consists of three main components: endocannabinoids, cannabinoid receptors, and the enzymes that break the cannabinoids down. CBD Gummies, Tinctures and other edibles bind to receptors in the body, which are known to reduce stress giving the user a relaxing experience. These edibles are also known to have other possible health benefits, like promoting better sleep and if, like my products, other herbs are added, then those properties will enhance those specific herbal benefits.
CBD typically stays in your system for 2 to 5 days, but that range doesn't apply to everyone. For some, CBD can stay in their system for shorter and/or longer periods of time
CBD may help to reduce pain by acting on a variety of biological processes in the body. CBD has been shown to work as an anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and analgesic and may also reduce the anxiety people living with chronic pain often experience.
Can CBD be absorbed through the skin?
Yes, CBD can be absorbed through the skin. When CBD is absorbed topically it does not enter the bloodstream but rather connects with nearby cannabinoid receptors through the skin's pores.
