How CBD relaxes your body

The medicinal plant hemp can be found all over the world and is used in many different ways. CBD, cannabidiol, is an active ingredient in the hemp plant. Unlike tetrahydrocannabinol, THC, CBD is not psychoactive or rousing.

CBD is extracted from the hemp plant and ingested as an oil. CBD oil contains gamma-linolenic acid, which has anti-inflammatory and muscle-relaxing effects. The oil also has a stress-reducing effect, as it reduces the release of the hormones cortisol and adrenaline. The hemp plant supports the body to enter the parasympathetic nervous system - the regeneration phase.

In order for CBD to work in our bodies at all, it first docks with our cannabinoid receptors. These receptors belong to the endocannabinoid system, which is part of our nervous system and regulates the action of endogenous messenger substances. This is how CBD enters our nervous system, activating it at different points in the body and transmitting signals to the brain. Components of CBD can protect against states of overexcitation in the central nervous system.
