How does CBD work

How does CBD work?

We’re all blessed with an endocannabinoid system which produces endocannabinoids: neurotransmitters that bind to cannabinoid receptors in your nervous system. Only discovered in the early 1990s, scientists are still uncovering how it works, but they do know it regulates many key functions such as sleep, mood, appetite, healing processes and many more.

Studies have shown that CBD may help reduce chronic pain by having an impact on receptor activity, reducing inflammation and interacting with neurotransmitters.

How to take CBD?

CBD comes in many forms: powder, tincture, oil, gummies and even topical creams. One of the most effective ways to take it is in liquid form, placing a few drops under the tongue. Here you have the choice between ‘Isolate’ – the most pure form of CBD with no other cannabidiols present, and ‘Distillate’ which has over 110 identified cannabinoids and hundreds of terpenes and flavonoids which may give an ‘entourage effect’. In addition there are many strengths on the market, all of varying quality. In order to feel a benefit we recommend a pure product with a relatively high CBD concentration such as our 1200mg natural distillate. We recommend taking this twice daily, at the start and end of the day.
