How CBD works with the CB1 and CB2 receptors in our bodies

Brain receptors are not only sensitive to neurotransmitters produced naturally within the brain, like dopamine or serotonin, but also chemical messengers produced outside the body, such as plant cannabinoids like THC or CBD.

When a person ingests CBD, they are allowing compounds originally produced by the plant to enter their body, travel through their bloodstream, and enter their brain. Once they arrive, these plant-derived compounds can influence brain activity by interacting with receptors on neurons. CBD works with the CB1 and CB2 receptors in our bodies. This product has been proven to synergize naturally with the body’s endocannabinoid system.

HOW MUCH DO I TAKE?

Most CBD dosage is measured in Milligrams (MG) and or dispensed in Milliliter droppers (ML). Every person is different and therefore every dosage is different.

Our products tell you how much is in each ML, and provide a suggested serving size. Please consult your health care provider with any concerns you may have.
