A gift from nature
Compounds like CBD + CBDA found naturally in the hemp plant stimulate the body’s own natural balancing mechanism, the endogenous cannabinoid system (ECS) or endocannabinoid system, which regulates everything from sleep, appetite, mood, the immune system and pain.
First discovered in the late 1980’s, the endocannabinoid system regulates the body’s homeostasis, or general state of balance, impacting such functions as mood, sleep, appetite, hormone regulation, and pain and immune response. As the environment around us impacts our normal balance, the endocannabinoid system “corrects” by mediating our body’s reaction to keep us level. Found in all mammals, the endocannabinoid system is made up of millions of cannabinoid receptor sites located primarily throughout the brain and central nervous system (CB1 receptors) and immune system (CB2 receptors) that act in neural communication.
However, the endocannabinoid system doesn’t simply rely on plant-based cannabinoids or phytocannabinoids. The human body is capable of making its own cannabinoids. Similar in function to CBD, Anandamide and 2-AG are the body’s own endocannabinoids, created to control communication between cells, mediating your body’s functions. It is clear that the endocannabinoid system is one of the most important regulatory systems in the human body, but most people do very little to support the health of this system because cannabinoids have not been part of the average diet. With the stresses of modern life, the endocannabinoid system can become compromised.
