Likewise, for our body to feel, we have our endocannabinoid system. The endocannabinoid system is what makes us process different feelings like pain, pleasure, our mood and even sleep patterns.
CBD comes from the hemp plant. The hemp plant contains phytocannabinoids that works with our endocannabinoid system, giving CBD its therapeutic benefits. Different types of pain our body feel, such as chronic, peripheral neuropathy, myofascial and osteoarthritis pain may be reduced with CBD creams.
