How does CBD oil work?

The endocannabinoid system is an integral part of the neuro-immuno-endocrine network responsible for transmitting chemical messages within the human body. These messages can impact mood, responses to stress, pain, inflammation, and more. While the body does produce its own endocannabinoids, phytocannabinoids (plant based cannabinoids) like CBD (and THC, CBC, CBG, CBD, etc…) activate receptors in this system which translates to signals being sent with varying effects depending on the cannabinoid and dosage consumed.
