Current research suggests our bodies can utilize the ENDOCANNABINOID SYSTEM to help maintain health, restore health and regulate the body as a whole. We have two types of receptors for cannabinoids – CB 1 and CB2. These are found throughout the body, but CB 1 receptors are most prolific in the brain and CB 2 receptors are found mostly in the peripheral body, especially within the digestive tract and immune system. CBD is thought to up regulate the body by balancing the energy, pleasure and well-being directly correlating to the function of the Heart, which in TCM is the sovereign ruler of the body as a whole. CB1 and CB2 receptors and their signaling molecules maintain health and well being by bringing the body back into a healthy state of balance when an injury or illness develops.
