CBD Oil – The Science Behind the Magic

Have you ever wondered how the CBD you enjoy works? For many people, it’s something of a mystery, but it doesn’t always have to be this way. There’s a lot that people don’t know about CBD products, and we’re going to try and change that. In this way, we’ll be looking at just how the CBD products work so that you know what’s happening when you consume your personal pain relief.

Cannabinoids – What You Need to Know

To begin with, we’re going to be taking a look at some of the basic facts you should know about cannabinoids.

Almost immediately, it’s important to note that this does not just mean cannabis products – it’s an umbrella term for anything connected to the cannabis plant. That’s an important distinguishment to make because while hemp-based CBD products (what we use) are free from the psychotropic and illegal effects of cannabis itself, we’re often still talked about with cannabinoids.

So, How Does it Work?

To understand with more precision how the CBD products we sell work for you, we’re going to need to tackle some science.

Something you’re going to need to know about the human body is that we’re already designed to receive the kinds of chemicals produced by CBD products already – it’s in our genetic design. Human beings have an endocannabinoid system which is not dissimilar to that of the cannabis plant itself. They’re made of receptors which are all along our central nervous system, and that’s why we can even absorb the chemicals at all.

In essence, what’s happening when you consume any CBD product, or illegal drug is that the receptors in the body are bonding with the foreign substance, and absorbing it, redistributing it throughout the body and then generating whatever effects that product has. Whether that’s getting the sensation of being ‘high’, or it’s experiencing pain relief in the case of CBD, the body works to use the oil or balm or edible and turns it into something you can process.

You might not have known that CBD oil also prevents the body from absorbing anandamide, which is a compound that has connections to pain regulation. In essence, the product stops you from being in large amounts of pain. Pretty clever, right?

To summarise, it’s pretty incredible to think that we have the tools needed to process CBD oil already in our bodies. It’s not always the case that we can use them effectively, but for many people, hemp-based CBD oil is a legitimate form of pain relief. Obviously, it’s up to you to find it for yourself, which is where we can really help. We provide a range of different CBD products, making it so that you can have access to all of the various substances you need without feeling like you’re getting cheated out of anything or being sold products which are not up to scratch. Everything we do provide is designed to be of the highest quality, so please feel free to come and have a look at what’s on offer.
