The Endocannabinoid System

The Endocannabinoid System

Jun 16th 2020

If you are new to the world of CBD, you may not know what the Endocannabinoid System (also known as ECS) is. So, let’s go over what this system is in your body, and how using CBD can benefit it.

The Endocannabinoid System is made out of cannabinoid receptors, self-made cannabis-like compounds, and enzymes that create and inactivate them. The main goal of this system is to maintain bodily homeostasis, which is biological harmony in response to changes in the environment. This makes the ECS one of the most important physiologic systems involved in maintaining and establishing human health.

So, how does using CBD oil help this bodily system? Using CBD activates the receptors which help assist in treating pain and inflammation. CBD has also been shown as a partial supporter of another receptor which may lead to CBD’s antidepressant, anti-anxiety, and neuroprotective effects.

It is also shown that to feel any potential benefits from the use of CBD, the human body needs a minimum of 15mg of CBD. If you have tried CBD oil, or any other types of CBD and haven’t noticed anything, you may have not ingested enough. Luckily for you, our lowest dose of oil is 500mg and has 15mg of CBD per dose with our 1000mg having just above 30mg per dose.
