Understanding the Endocannabinoid System
Endocannabinoid System (ECS)
Are you curious why hemp works the way it does? Let us explain the basics.
We all have an endocannabinoid system, which consists of receptors located in our brain and central nervous system, among other areas. Hemp-derived phytocannabinoids —like CBD— interact and support these receptors for various benefits.
The ECS is believed to support many biological processes that keep us in a balanced, neutral state.
It helps maintain homeostasis.
Our bodies naturally produce endo-cannabinoids on their own (i.e. anandamide) to support the Endocannabinoid System (ECS) when our body starts to fall out of balance. However, when we aren’t making enough, that’s when phyto-cannabinoids heroically swing into the picture. They are very similar to the compounds our body naturally makes, so it’s effortless and natural to supplement with hemp-derived CBD oil.
