After consuming CBD, this cannabinoid interacts with your endocannabinoid system.  The endocannabinoid system, which was discovered in 1992, contains hundreds of receptor sites throughout the brain, central nervous system and various point through your body.  CBD actually binds with these different receptor sites (CB1 and CB2) allowing the body to rebalance and move back toward a state of homeostasis.
