WHAT IS THE ENDOcCANNABINOID SYSTEM?

The endocannabinoid system, also referred to as ECS is a system of cell receptors and corresponding molecules. These cannabinoid receptors can be found all throughout the body, having a large variety of functions. Certain receptors are found in larger concentrations in specific regions of the body however. The central nervous system has an abundance of CB1 receptors, while CB2 receptors are more often found in the peripheral nervous system, gastrointestinal tract and on immune cells located throughout the body.

These endocannabinoid receptors play a large role in your body’s day-to-day function and have even been shown to help regulate people’s:

  • Mood
  • Memory
  • Sleep Habits
  • Appetite
  • Digestion
  • Immune System
  • Pain
  • Temperature Regulation
  • Motor Control

When the endocannabinoid system is not properly functioning a number of issues may occur. These could include anything from insomnia and fibromyalgia to irritable bowel syndrome and memory loss. When your body cannot produce enough endocannabinoids or does not properly regulate them, your body may be more susceptible to illnesses related to the endocannabinoid system.

Recent research has shown that cannabidiol (CBD), which can be found in hemp can help regulate the endocannabinoid system and treat certain illnesses, diseases and disorders that may be caused by endocannabinoid system deficiency. These illnesses can include chronic migraines, fibromyalgia, irritable bowel syndrome, anxiety, insomnia, depression and more!
