Benefits of the Endocannabinoid System
Our Endocannabinoid System (ECS) regulates the balance and maintenance of many of our body's systems and functions. From our endocrine system, which regulates hormonal release, to our digestive system, ensuring its proper flow, our ECS is responsible for remaining vigilant and taking immediate action the moment something isn't functioning properly. In fact, if you perspire when your body temperature rises, you can thank your ECS for going to work immediately to cool you down.
Our ECS consists of CB1/CB2 receptors that are triggered by cannabinoids. Humans naturally produce these cannabinoids, although some of us may be deficient in their production, which can lead to many of the health issues we see in the world today. Thankfully, we can still provide our bodies with these heavenly necessities via phytocannabinoids, cannabinoids found in plants! These phytocannabinoids mirror the ones we naturally produce, triggering our ECS in the same manner. With the proper amount of cannabinoids triggering our receptors, our ECS is able to function at maximum levels permitting our body's systems to perform and complete their tasks with ease.
