Why Is CBD Effective?

CBD is an effective natural homeostatic booster. Its ability to bind directly and indirectly to various receptors located throughout the entire body is what allows CBD to enhance proper functioning of cells and tissues. CBD can act as both an excitatory or inhibitory ligand. Meaning, based on the environment of the cell, the presence of CBD will activate or deactivate the release of neurotransmitters. Transmission of neural signals is what regulates homeostasis throughout functioning systems in the body. CBD works by either directly or indirectly modifying neurotransmitter signals throughout cells and neurons in the endocannabidnoid system based on the environment of the stimulated receptor. This means there is no single specific action that CBD prompts, but various actions.
