CBD interacts with the human endocannabinoid system to maintain homeostasis throughout an individual’s body and controls essential body functions, including sleep cycles, stress response, blood pressure, body temperature, mood, and pain perception. CBD is an inhibitor of FAAH, an enzyme that breaks down the body’s natural endocannabinoid, which binds it to the cannabinoid receptors in the brain that influences mood, pain, and sleep. The use of CBD oil frequently helps maintain a sufficient level of cannabinoids and reduces the dysfunction of the process.

The high levels of glutamate and low levels of Gaba are associated with hyperactivity of the brain and increased level of anxiety. CBD helps improve stress response and enhance focus, bringing concentration to an individual. Also, it can help in reducing depression, keeping you focused and free.
