The endocannabinoid System (ECS) is known to be responsible for keeping all of the other bodily systems in balance with one another as we encounter stress throughout our daily lives. When the body encounters a threat, stress chemicals such as cortisol and adrenaline are released to help one stay alert, focused, and protect the body. Muscles tense up to defend the body, We breathe harder and faster to pump oxygen through the body, and the heart rate rises. Once the threat has been handled, the body has to re balance itself.
The ECS regulates how quickly neurotransmitters are being released, slowing them down or speeding them up as necessary in order to return to and maintain internal homeostasis after the body has handled a threat. The ECS is made up of receptors embedded all over the body, including the brain, all of the organs, connective tissues, immune cells, and more. When these receptors are stimulated by cannabinoids, the bodies can communicate more effectively with themselves.
The body naturally produces its own endocannabinoids (endo meaning inside) to support this system, but just like with any other nutrient, we can sometimes become deficient and need extra support. This is where cannabis comes in. The cannabis plant produces phytocannabinoids (phyto meaning plant) that also interact with your endocannabinoid system. CBD is a phytocannabinoid derived from the cannabis plant and its current role within the body might be as unique. Unlike other Cannabinoids, CBD might hardly bind to receptors in the endocannabinoid system. Instead, it stops the breakdown of our own endocannabinoids, allowing the bodies to use more of what is already naturally producing.
Just like with any other medications or supplement, it is always best to seek a healthcare professional’s advice before incorporating CBD into your wellness regimen. With this regard. Naturally 2-3 drops under your tongue does the trick.
