Cannabidiol in creams, ointments and tinctures
The receptors for cannabinoids are found not only in the central nervous system, brain, spleen, lungs, heart and other organs, but also in our skin. If the body's own cannabinoid level is not balanced, it can manifest itself in dry and oily skin, leading to discomfort and skin problems. In order to restore balance and supply the body with sufficient cannabinoids, cannabidiol (CBD) can be supplied from the outside.
Thanks to the receptors for cannabinoids in the skin, CBD does not necessarily have to be absorbed from within the body. It can also unfold its effect with the help of cosmetic products, be absorbed directly through the skin and achieve a balance in our endocannabinoid system.
The Cannabinoid System of the Human Body
We have several cannabinoid receptors in our bodies. These are binding sites where cannabinoids can dock. The function of these docking points is simple but effective: cannabinoids of all kinds can bind to them and trigger processes in the human body. Mammals, birds and fish also have such receptors. This means that many animals are also able to process cannabinoids and benefit from their positive properties.
Endo- and exocannabinoids
However, the human body is not only capable of receiving and absorbing cannabinoids. In fact, we constantly produce our own cannabinoids, the so-called endo-cannabinoids. These endogenous cannabinoids ensure a healthy activity of messenger substances such as dopamine (e.g. "happiness hormone") in our body.
In contrast to this are the exo-cannabinoids, which are not the body's own cannabinoids. These are divided into synthetic cannabinoids from the laboratory and plant-based phytocannabinoids, to which CBD and THC belong. Like the endogenous cannabinoids, these exocannabinoids can dock to our receptors and thereby be processed by our body.
