The endocannabinoid system (ECS) works to establish and maintain human health, by regulating a wide array of functions such as sleep pattern, focus and optmization of the body overall, also known as homeostasis. The ECS consists of two primary cannabinoid receptors, CB1 & CB2. Cannabinoids and naturally occurring endocannabinoids interact with the CB1 and CB2 receptors, binding like a lock and key relationship. The physiological effects of cannabinoids vary depending on the location of the cannabinoid receptors that they stimulate.
Endocannabinoids produced by the ECS effects are localized. Introducing Phytocannabinoids such as CBD helps support the body’s own production of endocannabinoids which in turn nourishes the ECS communication systems.
