CBD 101: Our bodies, as well as all mammals, are equipped with an Endocannabinoid System (ECS) which was discovered in the 90’s when scientists were researching the effects of cannabis on the body. What they discovered was that we have cannabinoid receptors throughout our entire body, right on our cells. The ECS is a regulatory system and works to restore the body to homeostasis wherever and whenever it is out of balance. Our brains actually produce endocannabinoids at times such as during meditation, breast feeding and it’s even believed by some experts to be the cause of “runner’s high” too. However, due to our toxic environments/diets, we need supplementation (like many other vitamins/nutrients). CBD interacts with our body’s own ECS to restore that balance. When the Central Nervous System is out of balance, it can look like anxiety, depression, sleep disorders, brain fog, etc. When the Endocrine System is out of balance: thyroid disorders. Immune System: eczema, psoriasis, inflammation, etc… The best part is CBD goes wherever it’s needed and restores homeostasis. Our bodies were designed to regulate themselves! CBD effectively “flips the switch on” so that it can. Amazing stuff, right?!
