The Endocannabinoid System
"This is a biological system which is composed of endocannabinoids that are neurotransmitters that bind to cannabinoid receptors in the mammalian brain and body." (Medterracbd.com)There are two receptors - CB1 and CB2 that are located on cells throughout the body. These receptors play a role in mood, memory and pain. This system regulates homeostasis (body's state of balance), regulating functions such as appetite, mood, sleep, pain and hormone regulations. The endocannabinoid system is found in all mammals.

CB1 and CB2 Receptors
CB1 receptors are found in the brain and spinal cord (central nervous system) and CB2 receptors are found on cells in the immune system. When activated, these receptors stimulates a response that reduces inflammation, which can reduce pain.
What is CBD?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is derived from the cannabis (marijuana) plant. It is one of 85 cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. THC (the substance that makes people high) is the most abundant cannabinoid. CBD is the second most abundant. Medterra's CBD oil contains zero THC, so it is non-psychoactive and will not make you high.
