How do CBD gummies contribute to feelings of relaxation and calmness without causing sedation?

Cannabidiol (aka CBD), is a non-psychoactive compound found naturally in hemp and the primary active ingredient in CBD gummies. After being ingested, CBD interacts with internal signaling molecules and receptors to promote overall balance (homeostasis) and general well-being. It’s not clear exactly how it does this as CBD itself doesn’t appear to easily bind to receptors. One common theory is that CBD delays the breakdown of other signaling molecules, allowing them to produce greater therapeutic effects, including relaxation, a sense of calm, and reduced stress. This occurs without side effects such as sedation for most people, especially when CBD gummies are taken as directed.
