The Endocannabinoid System (ECS) is a network of receptors throughout your body. They regulate a variety of biological processes like relaxation, sleeping, eating, certain inflammation responses, cognitive functions, and overall homeostasis. Basically, it is your body’s efforts to keep everything in the right zone. It tries to keep your internal environment stable and optimal no matter what’s going on in the environment around you.
Let’s look at the word “endocannabinoid.”
“Cannabinoid” comes from “cannabis,” and “endo” is short for “endogenous,” which means that it is produced naturally inside of your body. Not only is the ECS a natural part of our bodies, it’s a crucial one.
The ECS itself is made up of three parts:
• Receptors in the nervous system and around your body that endocannabinoids and cannabinoids bond with called CB1 & CB2
• Enzymes that help break down endocannabinoids and cannabinoids
Homeostasis is essential to our health and survival, so when the ECS isn’t working properly, it can cause a lot of problems for you. Because CBD products can stimulate activity of the ECS, they’re obvious targets for potential treatments, and a ton of research is going on around the world! This suggests that regular doses of naturally occurring cannabinoids from hemp and other plants might act as a tonic to our most central physiologic healing system.
