How CBD Works for Chronic Pain
It all starts in the cannabinoid receptors – cannabinoid receptor (CB1) and (CB2). Studies have shown that CB1 receptors are located throughout the body with a high concentration in the central nervous system which controls our pain perception. CB2 receptors are located in areas of the body that control immune function, such as the spleen, white blood cells and tonsils.
