Your Body’s Natural Endocannabinoid System
Did you know that your body naturally produces endogenous cannabinoids similar to those found in Hemp? That’s right! These molecules make up the endocannabinoid system (ECS) which plays a significant role in sleep, mood regulation, appetite, and memory.
Experts believe that the primary function of the ECS is to maintain homeostasis, or balance, the stability of your body’s internal environment. Anxiety often creates an extreme disruption to the body’s internal stability, sending the ECS into overdrive. If left untreated, anxiety can cause a vast amount of physical side effects such as adrenal fatigue, sleep disturbances, cardiovascular disease and more.
How does CBD work?
There are a couple of different ways to consume CBD, topically (via skin) or orally. When ingested CBD almost immediately works in unison with your body on a cellular level in a plethora of ways. One of the most important ways is by imitating and augmenting the mixture of compounds in our bodies called "endogenous cannabinoids". These compounds make up the endocannabinoid system in our bodies.
The ECS (Endocannabinoid system) has a major role in synchronizing the internal physiological processes that dictate our daily experience.
