What are the benefits of CBD?
CBD can interact with the body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS). This system is made up of endocannabinoids that your body produces, the cannabinoid receptors they activate, and the enzymes that build and break them down.
The ECS regulates many essential processes such as sleep, metabolism, stress, and immunity to keep your body in a healthy state of balance called homeostasis. CBD has been shown to elevate endocannabinoid levels, helping support the functions of the ECS.
CBD may also produce other beneficial effects by interacting with various receptors and other molecules in your body. For example, it can affect your serotonin receptors. CBD gummies provide all of the same benefits as other forms of CBD, such as oils and capsules.
What are CBD gummies?
CBD gummies are sweet edibles that have been infused or coated with cannabidiol (CBD), a beneficial, non-intoxicating cannabis compound. They provide a tasty, easy-to-use alternative to CBD oil.
Zenbears CBD gummies, in particular, are pharmaceutically coated with CBD instead of infused, this results in an increased bioavailability as a high percentage of CBD is absorbed through your gums and under your tongue while chewing and sucking on the gummies.
What do CBD gummies do?CBD and THC are both cannabinoids, found naturally in the hemp plant. When you chew on a CBD gummy, it releases CBD into your mouth. You absorb most of the CBD into your bloodstream through your gums and through the blood vessels under your tongue. When you swallow the gummy, any remaining CBD travels through your digestive system, before making its way to your bloodstream.
Once in your body, the CBD from your gummies interacts with a system called the endocannabinoid system, or the ECS. Your ECS has its own cannabinoids, called endocannabinoids, that act as chemical messengers and keep your body in balance. They regulate things like pain, temperature, appetite and sleep.
CBD and THC can act on your ECS in a similar way to your own endocannabinoids. That’s why you might notice that your appetite or alertness, for example, are affected when you consume them.
