The Endocannabinoid System 

 

 

The Endocannabinoid System – Why Is It So Important?

 

We have a number of people asking us how CBD works & why it is so healthy. In short, it’s all about the ‘Endocannabinoid System’ – The Endocannabinoid System has been called ‘the most important physiologic system involved in establishing and maintaining human health’.

If nourished well, and supported with CBD Oil, it has fantastic healing potential.

In 1992, Dr. Rafael Mechulan, an Israeli scientist, discovered that the human body contains an endocannabinoid system. Our bodies create cannabinoids, which are vital in maintaining balance and homeostasis in the body. Unfortunately most of us are unable to create enough of our own cannabinoids and therefore our endocannabinoid system is out of balance.
Until hemp was prohibited alongside cannabis 100 years ago, humans had a readily available source of cannabinoids because hemp was eaten and livestock were also often fed on hemp. Post prohibition, this was largely lost.

When hemp and CBD were legalised a few years ago, many people began to take CBD and other cannabinoids extracted from hemp plants to top up their cannabinoid levels and bring more balance to their systems.

Taking CBD oil helps your body to create more of the cannabinoids that your endocannabinoid system needs to help maintain balance and wellbeing in the body.

Studies have shown that a healthy, functioning endocannabinoid system can help to:

  • Boost immune system 
  • Reduce the risk of disease
  • Reduce inflammation
  • Ease arthritic symptoms
  • Improve skin – e.g. psoriasis & eczema
  • Reduce nausea
  • Relieve muscular & joint pain
  • Alleviate depression & anxiety
  • Manage mood swings
  • Combat addictive patterns
  • Improve sleep difficulties
