How does CBD oil work in the body?

All human beings and chordate animals (with a backbone) have an internal system called the Endocannabinoid System (ECS). This system is an internal communication network essential for survival and general well-being. This happens through the activation of cannabinoid receptors (CB receptors) present in our body. Normally this happens naturally through the endocannabinoids that our own body generates. When the body is unable to generate sufficient levels of these compounds, natural cannabinoids like CBD could help regulate the body better.
