6 interesting facts about the endocannabinoid system in our bodies

The endocannabinoid system regulates the workings of a large part of our physiological functions.

Among the bodily functions that the endocannabinoid system regulates are sleep, memory, appetite, pain and inflammations, moods and even reproduction. It could be said that the endocannabinoid system is the conductor of our organism, ensuring all the elements of the orchestra are in harmony.

When a disease or stress is present, the endocannabinoid system increases its activity

Scientists in various studies have observed the functioning of the endocannabinoid system when a disease is present. Increased functions of the endocannabinoid system were observed in many diseases, including neurodegenerative diseases, rheumatoid arthritis and cancer. This confirms the assumption that the increased activity of the endocannabinoid system helps maintain a balance between different bodily functions, actively working against diseases and their consequences.

Insufficient functions of the endocannabinoid system may be the cause of some diseases

What happens when the endocannabinoid system in the body is exhausted? Scientists have found that under certain conditions associated with increased pain sensitivity (such as a migraine, fibromyalgia and irritable bowel syndrome), the functioning of the endocannabinoid system is impaired. The theory, called clinical weakness of the endocannabinoid system or Clinical Endocannabinoid Deficiency, refers to the replacement of endocannabinoids with phytocannabinoids from cannabis, which leads to improved system performance and consequently to an improvement of medical conditions.

Phytocannabinoids consumption stimulates the functions of our endocannabinoid system

Research shows that even in small doses, cannabis cannabinoids can stimulate the body to produce more endocannabinoids and create more cannabinoid receptors. This discovery raises a lot of controversy about the preventive use of cannabinoids in order to preclude the onset of diseases that are often a result of a broken balance between various bodily functions. Here we are referring to the preventive use of CBD cannabinoids in order to maintain a balanced body and harmonious body functions.

The anandamide endocannabinoid receptor is the biggest neurotransmitter in the human brain

We’ve all heard of neurotransmitters in our brain and bodies – the biochemical substances that transmit information between neurons. The best-known neurotransmitters are serotonin and dopamine, but lately, more and more attention is being paid to the endocannabinoid receptor anandamide, which has been proven to be the most common biochemical substance in the brain.

You can stimulate the functioning of your endocannabinoid system naturally

CBD cannabinoid is an active ingredient of industrial cannabis, which is completely legal and has no psychophysical effects on the human body. CBD oil positively affects the endocannabinoid system and consequently alleviates a variety of different problems in the body.
