CBD is known for supporting the body and mind in many ways. Our bodies have a vast network of receptors, called the “Endocannabinoid System” Its purpose is to help us stay balanced, even when challenged by external factors and certain lifestyle choices. CBD and other cannabinoids fit into these receptors helping us stay in good health by supporting many of the body’s natural physical processes.
So what is the endocannabinoid system?
The human endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a vast network of receptors spread throughout our entire body (it’s the body’s largest self-regulatory system). It controls some of our most vital life functions, including our immune system, memory, appetite, sleep pattern, mood and pain sensation. It has CB1 receptors throughout the brain and central nervous system. It uses CB2 receptors to regulate and maintain the immune system which keeps us in good health. A deficiency in the ECS can upset the body’s balance.
