How does CBD actually work?
In humans and dogs alike, CBD (real name: cannabidiol) functions by boosting the body’s endocannabinoid system.
Endocannabinoids are signaling molecules that form an extensive network inside the body— connecting to all organs and systems. It’s thought that endocannabinoids are responsible for maintaining internal balance and harmony.
Cannabis products can both mimic endocannabinoids and boost natural levels of these transmitter molecules, which affect a sweeping set of behavioral, neuroendocrine, and autonomic functions. In other words, pain, inflammation, memory, stress, sleep, and the immune system.
