What is the endocannabinoid system?
In the 1980s, scientists discovered endocannabinoids. The Endocannabinoid System (ECS) is a complex cell-signalling system naturally produced by the human body; the primary function of the ECS is to maintain bodily homeostasis. The ECS interacts primarily with our nervous and immune system and is responsible for balancing and optimizing functions such as sleep, relaxation, appetite moderation, controlling inflammatory and pain responses and enhancing cognitive abilities like mood and memory.
Typically, our endocannabinoid system is maintained by our healthy body's natural ability to produce endocannabinoids. When the body is deficient, it affects how we feel and function. Taking CBD may offset this deficiency and restore wellbeing.
