What is the EndoCannabinoid System?

In the 1990s, scientists discovered endocannabinoids, the natural cannabis-like molecules produced by the human body. Scientists began to realize cannabis exerted its effects, in part, by mimicking our endocannabinoids. It appears the main function of the endocannabinoid system is to maintain bodily homeostasis—biological harmony in response to changes in the environment. These compounds help our bodily functions including our health’s stability and immune system. A lack of these endocannabinoids may result in many health problems.

Cannabinoids(CBD) CAN HELP in treating different health conditions such as pain, nausea, depression, anxiety, epilepsy, even acne. Also, it helps ease the INFLAMMATION due to its ANTI-INFLAMMATION PROPERTIES.

The endocannabinoid system is involved in a host of homeostatic and physiologic functions, including modulation of pain and inflammation. It Is a network of receptors that can be found throughout the bodies of humans and all other mammals. The body creates its own cannabinoids which bind to these receptors to regulate different bodily functions and maintain homeostasis. ( Homeostasis is a self-regulating process of the body maintaining stability while adjusting to conditions in obtaining optimum health. )
