What is this “endocannabinoid system” I keep hearing about? How does CBD interact with it?
The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a complex signal network all mammals have. It is composed of neurotransmitters called “endocannabinoids” that interact with cannabinoid receptors. The receptors are located throughout all of the central and peripheral nervous systems and control diverse physiological functions such as:
- Pain perception
- Emotion, humor, and appetite control
The receptors can be activated with the endocannabinoids produced by the cells of the human body, but also with phyto-cannabinoids or plant-derived cannabinoids such as CBD or THC. Thus human bodies are highly compatible with these substances and experience incredible natural benefits with little or no side effects after consumption.
