How Does CBD Work?

There are different receptors in the human body which are attached to the cells. These receptors receive signals from different stimuli. The receptors that CBD seems to mainly interact with include the CB1 and CB2 receptors.

There are also quite a few commercially available products that you can try out, just start with a low dosage and work your way up. 

A good starting dosage amount is between 20 and 40 mg of CBD. If you do not find that your stress is eased with this dosage, then increase it gradually until you find that sweet spot. 

You can opt from tinctures, oils, edibles, or even CBD gummies for sleep. Read the label on whichever you choose to see what the CBD percentage is and the recommended dosage amount.
