Get Acquainted with Cannabanoids
Lately, there’s been a lot of talk about the ECS or endocannabinoid system. Only recently discovered in the 20th century, this system is essential to the human body, initiating processes to achieve homeostasis. It’s made up of endocannabinoids (molecules naturally produced by the human body), receptors (found in bone, immune cells, skin, liver, fat tissue, skeletal muscle, pancreas, kidney, heart, blood vessels, and gastrointestinal tract), and enzymes (substances that control the rate of chemical reactions).
Cannabis is Complex, But We’ll Make it Simple
The ECS is vital to body processes such as mood, memory, stress, the immune system, the reproductive system, pain, healing, sleep, and more. Because cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant are similar to the endocannabinoids, they can interact with the receptors and influence the information that is sent and received by them. THC binds with receptors and mimics the processes of the ECS. Rather than bind to receptors, CBD offers the ECS access to its endocannabinoids, promoting a more effective function.
