Endocannabinoid System (ECS)

Endocannabinoid System


The endocannabinoid system was discovered in the early 1990s.  It is our physiological system and is an extremely important system that connects to all bodily functions.  As you can see from the image above, the endocannabinoid system is critical to almost every bodily function.  Our body makes cannabinoids naturally, but we often need more than our body makes because we are inundated with pollutants, from our air, water, and food, in modern society.  Medically grown CBD hemp has phytocannabinoids, which our body needs to ensure our endocannabinoid system functions properly.

Systems of the Body


The endocannabinoid system is highlighted at the top of the image above because it is a critical system for healthy bodily function.  Some of the most commonly referred to body systems include the vascular system, the endocrine system, the lymphatic system, the nervous system, muscular system, reproductive system, and the digestive system.

Animals Have Receptors


Even dogs, cats, and other animals have an endocannabinoid system with CB1 and CB2 receptors.  Many people are now using medicinal CBD hemp oil to help their animals with numerous health conditions, including seizures, pain, and anxiety.

Specifics about the Endocannabinoid System (ECS)



A neurotransmitter is a chemical messanger that carries, boosts, and balances signals between neurons, or nerve cells and other cells in the body.

CB1 and CB2 Receptors


CB1 receptors are primarily in the brain and nervous system.  CB2 receptors are located primarily in the organs, but are also in other parts of the body and play a major role in boosting the immune system.  Receptors act like a lock and the neurotransmitters act like a key.

CBD - A Partnership with You


Cannabis oil forms a partnership between your immune system and your endocannabinoid system. University studies have found that CBD also shuts down the L1 gene that allows cancer to metastasize. 

Healing is Involved


According to Dr. Raphael Mechoulam, the foremost scientist studying the Endocannabinoid system and how the phytocompounds in the cannabis plant interact, stated, "Cannabis may be involved in all human diseases."
