What is the Endocannabinoid System?

It has been made known that CBD works with our body’s endocannabinoid system to provide healing benefits. We know that the endocannabinoid system is a system in our body, but what is it?

Well, the endocannabinoid system, or ECS, is a complex cell-signaling system that plays a role in regulating mood, memory, sleep, and appetite. All of these functions are connected to homeostasis, our body’s way of maintaining stability. For example, if an outside source, such as a fever, throws off the homeostasis of our bodies, your ECS works to help your body return to its natural state.

Right now the how of CBD working with ECS has not been fully figured out. As of now, it is believed that CBD prevents endocannabinoids from being broken down. This allows the endocannabinoids to have more of an effect on our bodies.

Although it is not known exactly how it works, it’s known that it works. CBD works with the endocannabinoid system to help regulate and improve sleep, reduce inflammation, and so much more!
