What is the endocannabinoid system (ECS)?
  • Within our bodies there exists a complex network of neuro-receptors called the endocannabinoid system or ECS. This system operates throughout the body to send and receive important chemical messages for our health and for maintaining homeostasis in the body. Recent studies have shown that the ECS interacts primarily with our nervous and immune systems and is responsible for balancing and optimising functions such as sleep, relaxation, appetite moderation, controlling inflammatory and pain responses and enhancing cognitive abilities like mood and memory.
  • Our endocannabinoid system, under normal circumstances, is maintained by our healthy body’s natural ability to produce endocannabinoids. When there is a deficiency of endocannabinoids in the body due to aging or other impairing factors like stress, it affects how we feel and can become problematic for our optimal functioning. Supplementation with CBD is known to help offset this deficiency and restore optimal health.
