Q. Can human body produce cannabinoids?
A. Endogenous cannabinoids, aka endocannabinoids, are produced by the body. The endogenous recipient system for cannabinoids is called endocannabinoid system (or ECS). The function of ECS is the usability of CBD oil and recognizes it. This system helps to regulate sleep, the immune system and the sensation of pain. When used, pain subsides, sleep improves, and immune system no longer reacts and inflammation is reduced. THC binds to the cannabinoid receptors in the brain and reward system is activated. Dopamine is released. CBD works differently potentially works towards homeosthasis, and balances the ECS. If there's too little endocannabinoids by the body itself, taking CBD oil can support the optimal level. Too much shouldn't have dramatic negative effects.

Q. Our Cannabinoid Receptors and Endocannabinoid System
A. Our body actually has areas that are made specifically for cannabinoids. They are called cannabinoid receptor sites. These sites make up the endocannabinoid system which is responsible for numerous physiological and mental processes that occur naturally within the body. The endocannabinoid system includes a number of specialized cell receptors in the brain and in various other organs throughout the body. The two types of receptors are CB1, found mainly in the brain but also in the liver, kidney, and lungs, and CB2, which is found mainly in the immune system. Cannabinoid substances actually bind these receptor to coordinate various functions across the body.
Q. How does CBD work?
A. CBD works uniquely as far as cannabinoids go in that it does not seem to interact directly with either CB1 or CB2 receptors. Cannabidiol has a particularly low potential for binding with these receptors but instead acts an antagonist of the receptors' antagonists. This means that CBD keeps the receptors working at optimal capacity and helps the function of all other cannabinoids, including the body's own endocannabinoids.
