What is the science behind the Benefits of CBD Oil and how does CBD work with my body?
Cannabis has been at the center of one of the most exciting—and underreported—developments in modern science. Research on marijuana’s effects led directly to the discovery of a hitherto unknown biochemical communication system in the human body, the Endocannabinoid System, which plays a crucial role in regulating our physiology, mood, and everyday experience.
The discovery of receptors in the brain that respond pharmacologically to cannabis—and the subsequent identification of endogenous cannabinoid compounds in our own bodies that bind to these receptors—has significantly advanced our understanding of human biology, health, and disease.
How Can CBD Help You?
The earliest reference to the therapeutic use of cannabis dates back to 2700 BC in ancient China, “the land of hemp and mulberry.” Cannabis (“Ma”) was subsequently included in the Pen Ts’ao Ching, humankind’s first pharmacopeia, which had been assembled by Emperor Shen Nung. The legendary father of traditional Chinese medicine, Shen Nung is credited with introducing the custom of drinking tea.
