Endocannabinoid System (SCS)
Ever wonder what helps maintain our bodies’ homeostasis, keeping everything in check? Well, that’s the ECS. Our bodies are basically machines, and when a part is not functioning properly, our bodies activate the ECS to help get that part working correctly again. From your heartrate needing to slow down a bit to your stomach growling, the ECS is there to calm you down and signal that you need to eat.
How Does It Work?
Science knows we have at least two cannabinoid receptors (CB1 and CB2) that work with the endocannabinoid system to regulate things like appetite, digestion, mood, inflammation, memory, sleep, and immune function.
- CB1, located in the central nervous system
- CB2, located in the peripheral nervous system
Known as the “bliss molecule,” or the human version of THC, anandamide (AEA) is one of two primary compounds called endocannabinoids.
CBD hemp extract prevents the breakdown of AEA, which means it can help keep your customers stay happy AND healthy.
While CBD hemp extract does not contain the psychoactive ingredient THC, it does offer the benefits of wellness. Those benefits include but are not limited to:
- Pain management
- Anxiety relief
- Protection of nerve and brain function
- Neutralization of harmful oxidative stress
With studies underway to learn more about the ECS, several conditions have been linked to dysregulation of the system, aka clinical endocannabinoid deficiency, or CECD. Conditions for which there is proof that CECD could play a role include migraines, irritable bowel syndrome, and fibromyalgia.
Researchers are still in the preliminary stages of learning how to prevent or remedy an endocannabinoid deficiency, but the CBD community is becoming increasingly interested in how CBD hemp products can help not only an endocannabinoid deficiency, but one’s overall health and well-being.
