Why Should I Use CBD?
There are many benefits to taking daily CBD supplements from hemp oil products, but the most exciting among them is that they enhance the body’s own endocannabinoid system (ECS), increasing the body’s ability to maintain balance. When the ECS is supplemented in this way, it is able to function more efficiently, optimizing the body’s performance. Basic functions like sleep, mood, appetite, inflammation, immune function and bone deposition are all impacted by the ECS.
Cannabinoids are a class of chemical compounds produced by the cannabis plant. There are over 70 presently discovered cannabinoids, which are largely responsible for the effects cannabis has on the body. Common cannabinoids include tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), cannabidiol (CBD), cannabinol (CBN), and cannabigerol (CBG). These cannabinoids act on receptors located in our cells as part of the ECS and modulate the release of neurotransmitters. CB1 receptors are mostly located in the central nervous system, and CB2 receptors are found mostly throughout the peripheral nervous system.
Hemp oil also provides the body with a number of beneficial nutrients, like minerals, omega-3 fatty acids, flavonoids, and terpenes. Adding these nutrients to your daily routine is another reason to add a hemp oil supplement to your diet.
