So how does CBD oil work? CBD oil interacts with your endocannabinoid system. For years, this was an ignored part of the body. Since the 1980’s, there has been a growing amount of beneficial scientific research, which has given us a better understanding of this system. That, in turn, has helped the cannabis industry gain credibility.
Every person’s endocannabinoid system helps their body regulate involuntary biological and functions, including:
- Carbon Dioxide levels
- Blood sugar levels
- Pain response
- Energy levels
- Body temperature
As you can see, the endocannabinoid system is vital to your health.
Although your endocannabinoid system is responsible for maintaining balance in all these areas of your body, sometimes your endocannabinoid system itself will become imbalanced. In this scenario, your endocannabinoid system can no longer regulate these processes, and your health begins to deteriorate. You’ll have trouble sleeping. Your blood sugar might spike dramatically. You may feel, stressed, depressed, and lethargic. Best-case scenario, these issues will be temporary, but many people end up experiencing chronic health conditions.
