The Endocannabinoid System

The Endocannabinoid System (ECS)

(ECS) It is one of the new and outstanding discoveries in science. The ECS regulates a variety of biological processes, such as relaxation, feeding, sleep, certain inflammatory reactions and even cognitive function. In short, your ECS is responsible for the optimal function of your body - it's no small task!

Endocannabinoids (CBD) and their receptors are found throughout the body. However, while the ECS performs its tasks, experts believe that the function of the ECS is the regulation of homeostasis.

It is difficult to define a system as complex as the ECS, but it is important to know that there are two types of important receptors - CB1 and CB2 - in the cells of the body.  
They are abundant in the brain and immune system. The body produces cannabinoids in a natural process  that share chemical structures similar to cannabinoids derived from plants like Hemp.

  Endocannabinoids (plant-derived cannabinoids) connect with receptors - called cannabinoid receptors - on the surface of our cells. There are two main receptors, CB1 and CB2. It has been shown that Cannabidiol (CBD) strengthens and improves the efficacy of mitochondria, the power source for every cell in your body. Studies on the Endocannabinoid System (ECS) have shown that apart from being regulators of homeostasis, the ECS is also responsible for repairing damaged cell  

What does ingesting CBD Hemp Oil do?

When a person ingests hemp oil, CBD, or other cannabinoids, these cannabinoid receptors are activated. Research indicates that when you supplement your ECS with non-toxic, non-addictive cannabinoids, it is possible to develop a healthier ECS and, almost certainly, a healthier life.  

What happens when our body is CBD deficient?

Researchers have proposed an "endocannabinoid  syndrome,"  in which the body does not produce enough endocannabinoids (CBD).  This research speculates that a deficiency of cannabinoids can be at the root of autoimmune diseases like lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes neuro degenerative diseases and more.
