The endocannabinoid system (ECS) regulates a number of other systems in the body by controlling the release of various compounds. The body's natural cannabinoids assist with this regulation by binding to CB1 receptors, as does CBD and other plant-based cannabinoids. That's why CBD is used by some people to help manage mood, sleep, and pain. CBD works indirectly in the ECS by inhibiting the inactivation of anandamide, which is a neurotransmitter. This leads to activity on the CB1 receptors and the release of serotonin, also known as the "feel-good" hormone. As a result, CBD is sometimes used to reduce anxiety.
