How CBD Oil Affects Your Body
Reading Time: 2 minutes
With the rising popularity of CBD oil products, there’s just one question on everyone’s mind: How does CBD oil actually affect your body?
Miracle Balance wants to give you a rundown on everything you need to know about the science behind our scalar-infused CBD oil.
The Science Behind CBD Oil
Let’s start with where cannabidiol (CBD) begins to take effect in the body. Along with the immune system, endocrine system, nervous system, and more, there’s also what’s called an endocannabinoid system (ECS).
The ECS is a regulatory system that uses receptors to regulate body temperature, pain, and inflammation. Bodily homeostasis is the goal meaning your mood, appetite, pain, and other factors should be in balance.
So, what can CBD oil do to keep our bodies in balance? The ECS works like any other biological system. There are proteins and receptors waiting to bind to cannabinoids or other compounds, and once they’re activated, they can initiate a physiological response.
The receptors you’ll most often hear about are CB1 and CB2, but research has shown that CBD doesn’t actually bind to these as strongly as you’d think. What CBD does is attach itself to other key receptors in the ECS and nervous system. Serotonin receptors, in particular, are shown to affect sleep, pain, and mood.
Instead of binding to our CB1 and CB2 receptors, introducing CBD oil to our bodies may stimulate our ECS to make full use of our own cannabinoids. Even though our bodies naturally produce their own set of cannabinoids, taking CBD supplements may help improve the functioning of the endocannabinoid system, especially when an existing condition needs some extra attention.
CBD Oil And Inflammation
One of the important receptors that help to manage pain and body temperature is TRPV1.
You may notice that inflamed areas of your body feel warmer than usual, and we can often interpret this warming as pain. It’s mostly thanks to the TRPV1 receptor, which helps to send messages to your brain to initiate a biological response to let you know of an injury. CBD oil has been shown to interact with this receptor and may help act as an anti-inflammatory aid when needed.
CBD oil’s anti-inflammatory effects can be spread across the body, too. The use of CBD oil in treating dermatological conditions like acne and eczema has become more popular in recent years.
CBD Oil And Anxiety
If you’re considering using CBD oil, chances are you’ve heard about its successes in helping to reduce anxiety and enhance the quality of your sleep.
Cannabinoids can interact with a lot of receptors in our bodies, but perhaps one of the most important is 5-HT1A serotonin. 5-HT1A serotonin binds to other serotonin neurotransmitters, helping your body regulate mood and improve sleep quality.
Serotonin is found throughout our bodies’ nervous systems, and the stimulation of this receptor will initiate either an inhibitory or excitatory biological response, whichever one your body needs to help keep it in the balanced state of homeostasis.
