YOUR ENDOCANNABINOID SYSTEM

To understand how CBD works, you must first understand the system of the body that it influences. This is called the endocannabinoid system (or ECS), and it has a major effect on many of our body’s natural processes. 

The ECS was discovered by doctors in the 1990s, and there are a number of studies conducted on what it’s purpose is in the human body. We now know that the ECS system is a natural regulation system for the processes that occur in almost every part of our body, including:

  • Pain perception
  • Anxiety and Emotion
  • Sleep
  • Metabolism
  • Immune System
  • Reproductive Health
  • Homeostasis
  • Memory
  • Balance
