The Endocannabinoid system (ECS) is one of the regulatory systems in our body. It controls everything from relaxation to eating, sleeping, inflammation and even cognitive function. In a nutshell, your ECS is responsible for making sure your entire body is working optimally.
There are two types of cannabinoid receptors found throughout your body (CB1 and CB2), but they are most abundant in your brain and immune system.This system wants to maintain balance, called homeostasis.
In order to create homeostasis, our body leverages tools in the form of nutrients and compounds from everything we ingest (including the air we breath and water we drink).
A special set of nutrients called Cannabinoids promote homeostasis at every level of biological life, from the sub-cellular, to the organism, and perhaps to the community and beyond. And CBD works as a switch that turns on our Endocannabinoid system. That's why CBD has the powerful ability to interact with multiple organ systems.
Unlike THC (the chemical responsible for most of marijuana's psychological effects), Cannabidiol is non-psychoactive while having the potential to possess a variety of therapeutic properties for many medical conditions. THC and CBD have an inverse relationship. The more CBD, the less THC and the reverse also holds true.
Because CBD acts on completely different receptors and enzymes than THC, it has the potential to significantly decrease anxiety, depression and stress in people. CBD is completely safe and non-addictive. CBD can also be used to balance hormones, reduce anxiety, lower inflammation and chronic pain, combat metabolic syndrome, and reduce obesity.
Scientific and clinical studies continue to underscore CBD’s potential as a possible treatment for a wide range of conditions, including rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes, alcoholism, MS, chronic pain, schizophrenia, PTSD, antibiotic-resistant infections, epilepsy, and other neurological disorders. CBD has demonstrated neuroprotective and neurogenic effects, and its anticancer properties are currently being investigated at several academic research centers in the United States and elsewhere.
As the science of medical cannabis develops, we’re discovering more and more about the 483 chemical compounds found in the Cannabis Sativa plant. Cannabis contains at least 113 types of cannabinoids, many of which have documented medical value, but only one—THC—gets you high. Here’s where hemp-based CBD products come in. There’s been a lot of debate suggesting that CBD derived from industrial hemp has the same properties as cannabis-derived CBD, making it a potential alternative for people who don't want to turn to prescription drugs that often come with unwanted side effects.
