A Beginner’s Guide to the Endocannabinoid System

Do you know why so many people are finding relief with CBD?

It has to do with the endocannabinoid system, or ECS.

Researchers believe this vital biological system may play an important role in regulating nearly every major function in our bodies.

As a matter of fact…

The ECS impacts our appetite, memory, sleep and more!

CBD, an active compound in hemp, influences our endocannabinoid system. This may help explain why Cannabidiol may be so effective for alleviating such a wide range of conditions.

Keep reading to learn how supplementing your ECS with CBD could help you find relief.

What is the Endocannabinoid System?

So, what exactly is the endocannabinoid system?

The ECS was first discovered in the 1990s.

Although our understanding of this complex system is still developing, we do know that the endocannabinoid system plays an important role in modulating homeostasis.

Or in layman's terms, balance.

While we might assume only humans have an ECS, animals also have an endocannabinoid system.

Made up of endocannabinoids and two primary receptors, CB1 and CB2, the ECS helps modulates major physiological processes such as pain, inflammation, and even our mood to name a few.

How can one system impact so many things?

Well, this likely has to do with the fact that CB1 receptors are found primarily in our brain and nervous system while CB2 receptors are located in our peripheral organs and throughout our immune system.

A growing body of research shows supplementing our ECS with cannabinoids like CBD may play a key role in fighting disease and promoting healing.
