HOW CANNABIDIOL (CBD)
• & even Immune System Responses
In recent years, researchers from around the world have recognized the vast medical potential of eCS. Summarized in a 2006 review by the National Institutes of Health (NIH)
CBD & THE ENDOCANNABINOID SYSTEM
What makes the system an endocannabinoid system is that our body naturally produces neurotransmitters similar to CBD and other cannabinoids. A comparable analogy is how our bodies produce endorphins that are chemically similar to opiates, but much weaker. Likewise, the consensus is that, although our body creates its own endocannabinoids, it is not as strong as phytocannabinoids (hemp cannabinoids). By supplementing the body with CBD, we are creating a stronger response to something that our body is naturally creating!
Since its discovery in the 1990s, the medical community has continued to research ECS to learn more about how it works. According to the National Institutes of Health, learning how to handle eCS effectively can result in the formulation of better treatments for pain, addiction, and other medical problems.
Supplementing this great system of self-regulation with plant-derived cannabinoids is a potential way to encourage and maintain health.
