Cannabinoids like cannabidiol (CBD) are derived from the stalks and stems of cannabis plants like hemp. Once absorbed, these cannabinoids interact with our body’s natural systems to promote balance. The reason they’re able to elicit balancing properties is because they share a similar chemical makeup to endocannabinoids, which are synthesized on demand by the body.
When we talk about the significance of cannabidiol (CBD) and the role that cannabinoids play in maintaining and improving our health, we’re referring to their influence on the endocannabinoid system and potentially improving its ability to maintain homeostasis. Homeostasis refers to any process or reaction that our body utilizes to actively maintain a constant internal
Cannabinoids are able to elicit their natural balancing effects by interacting with the endocannabinoid system (ECS). The ECS consists of a series of receptors that are configured to accept cannabinoids – including endocannabinoids that are synthesized by the body, and phytocannabinoids that are found in plants like hemp. The ECS, responsible for regulating an array
Researchers believe that the underlying cause of many ailments, particularly those related to the immune system and inflammation, could be a disorder referred to as clinical endocannabinoid deficiency. Endocannabinoid deficiency is a theory for the symptoms and conditions that develop when the body’s endocannabinoid system isn’t functioning properly. We’ve previously discussed the endocannabinoid system and
Ever wonder how cannabinoids interact with your body? The answer is through the endocannabinoid system. The endocannabinoid system is responsible for regulating balance in our body’s immune response, appetite, metabolism, memory, and more. In spite of the integral role this system takes on, until recently it remained an unknown part of the human body’s functions.
