The endocannabinoid system is a complex grouping of all kinds of mechanisms within your body that play a role in regulating body, mood, and daily experiences.
We are living through an exciting time in history. Very recently, scientists made an exciting discovery of an unknown biochemical communication system within that body, the endocannabinoid system, which plays a crucial role in regulating mood, body, and daily experiences.
What is the Endocannabinoid System?
The ECS is made of several interlocking components with your body, including: cannabinoids, cannabinoid receptors, and enzymes responsible for the fate of the cannabinoids. Endocannabinoids and cannabinoids engage with the receptor sites to help the body achieve balance.
Your body’s endocannabinoid system is involved in several processes, including sleep, mood, pain, appetite, memory, metabolism, stress, immune function, and reproductive function. Endocannabinoids are the most helpful of the signaling molecules inside your body!
Your receptors are located throughout your body. Researchers have discovered endocannabinoid receptors in immune cells, bone, fat tissue, major functioning organs, and gastrointestinal tract. We now know the ECS is involved in a wide variety of processes, including pain, memory, mood, appetite, stress, sleep, metabolism, immune function, and reproductive function.
Cannabinoids are critters that trigger! These little guys trigger’ receptors. Your body has over 100 of these little guys, which are responsible for triggering the receptors.
Much government research has been conducted to show CBD to have potent anti-spasmodic, anti-tumoral, antioxidant, anti-psychotic, anti-convulsive, neuroprotective properties, and interacts with serotonin receptors, presumably helping with depression, anxiety, and stress, as well.
