We all have an endocannabinoid system (ECS), a series of chemicals and receptors throughout your body: in your brain, organs, connective tissue, glands and immune cells. Its goal is to promote internal balance and stability, and is critical to establishing and maintaining human health. Your ECS is the connector between body, mind and spirit.
Could you suffer from Endocannabinoid Deficiency?
Because the ECS regulates homeostasis, an imbalance in the body’s ECS could be the underlying cause behind many diseases, conditions and disorders…from inflammatory and autoimmune diseases to depression, fatigue and chronic pain. Since the ECS is the largest neurotransmitter system in the body, it is not surprising that these symptoms may be caused by a deficiency in endocannabinoids.
A healthy and functional ECS is essential for health. The good news is that your ECS can break the cycle of stress and inflammation that leads to imbalances, conditions, and illness.
Activating your ECS with CBD
While your body naturally produces cannabinoids, your ECS can also respond to and benefit from plant-based cannabinoids such as cannabidiol (CBD.) CBD stimulates activity and binds to the receptors that are found in the brain and throughout the immune system, changing the way the body functions and providing broad, immediate benefits.
