Our Body and the Endocannabinoid System

Our Body and the Endocannabinoid System

The Endocannabinoid System (ECS) is a network of receptors (called CB1 and CBD2) spread throughout the body – in the brain along with the central and peripheral nervous systems. This network of receptors controls many vital life functions, including the immune system, memory, appetite, sleep patterns, mood, stress, inflammation and pain sensation.

Listen to your Body

Listen to your Body

There are many occasions when we experience symptoms of our body being out of balance. Perhaps you have a headache or muscle cramps. Lots of people would self-medicate with an over-the-counter (OTC) drug like Tylenol or Motrin. But those symptoms are also the same ones a person might experience from being dehydrated! But lets say the person drank a couple glasses of water to treat their headache or muscle cramps. That does not make water an OTC drug!

That is the way I think of using CBD Oil. Sometimes our bodies might be sending us signals that our body is not making enough cannabinoid naturally. Perhaps by taking a dietary supplement like CBD Oil, we can achieve better balance and our symptoms go away! That also does not make CBD Oil an OTC drug!

Anandamide the “bliss molecule,”

The Endocannabinoid system modulates physiological processes like inflammation, memory or pain. Examples of Endocannabinoid (the chemicals produced by our own bodies) are anandamide (AEA) and 2-arachidonoylglycerol (2-AG). Hemp contains among other cannabinoids, the plant based cannabinoid Cannabidiol or CBD Oil.
