that most people don’t know about.
The Endocannabinoid System (ECS) is a network of receptors located in the brain and throughout the nervous system; it is the body’s way of maintaining and regulating the crucial body functions. The system is made of two different receptors: CB1 and CB2 receptors. These receptors function primarily to interact with and breakdown the cannabinoids that our body makes, endocannabinoids.(endo- meaning internal)
It uses these endocannabinoids to regulate important body functions like sleep, stress management, pain tolerance, inflammation, reproduction, motor control, memory, metabolism regulation, Hunger sensation, mood, and Immune Function.
CB1 receptors are located in the brain and throughout the body, while CB2 receptors are found mostly in the immune and gastrointestinal system; although CB2 receptors are also found in the brain, they are not expressed quite as densely as CB1 receptors.
According to current research, a supplementary addition of external cannabinoids (phytocannabinoid) can be largely beneficial and delivers several powerful health benefits. phytocannabinoids are external cannabinoids that come from plants like hemp. Because hemp naturally produces roughly 100 phytocannabinoids, it is widely considered as the best source of external and natural cannabinoids. One of the most well-known cannabinoids is Cannabidiol (CBD).
