CBD 101 - Your Body's ECS

endocannabinoid-system

Our bodies have an endocannabinoid system, ECS.  The endocannabinoid system's main function is to maintain homeostasis.

Homeostasis, simply put, is keeping our body balanced and functioning at optimum level.  

The ECS monitors important functions and levels in your body.  Are you getting enough rest?  Is your blood pressure too high?  How is your body temperature?

When something is off balance, your ECS activates to help correct what's wrong.  A simple example of this is when your stomach growls to remind you to eat because you need fuel.

How does the ECS communicate with our body?  The ECS communicates via 2 types of cannabinoid receptors, CB1 and CB2.  These receptors are found throughout your entire body.

The ECS is fueled by your body's own endocannabinoids.  CBD helps your ECS to work more efficiently.

Through the CB1 and CB2 receptors your body's ECS may assist with many issues including but not limited to:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Digestion
  • Nausea
  • Inflammation
  • Sleep
  • Reproduction
  • Motor control
  • Temperature regulation
  • Memory
  • Pain

Stay tuned for part 3 in our CBD 101 series: Different types of CBD.
