How CBD Works To Relieve Tendonitis
The way CBD works is by communicating with the ECS. The ECS or Endocannabinoid system, is an internal messenger. The two main receptors are called CB1 and CB2. CB1 communicates mostly with neurological functions, while the CB2 receptors deal with Circulatory functions. When you take CBD, stimulates our ECS which brings it to homeostasis, so it can properly function on its own. The endocannabinoid system is directly involved with the settlement of things like inflammation. The relief many people get from taking CBD for their tendonitis comes from the anti-inflammation properties it has. While inflammation is a natural response from our bodies to let us know something is wrong, too much of it can be a bad thing.
Research studies have used doses from 15mg to as high as 600mg. Typical CBD supplements provide 20mg to 25mg. When taking CBD for inflammation, dosing can vary widely depending on the severity of the symptoms you are experiencing.
