Did You Know?
The “runners high” we experience is thought to be due to the endocannabinoid system!
What Is the Endocannabinoid System (ECS)?
With receptors throughout your entire body, this important body system helps to keep your body stable and balanced, known as homeostasis. The ECS plays an important role in sleep-wake cycles, pain, inflammation, cognition, memory, digestion, and much more.
With receptors in many different organ systems, the effects of the ECS are widespread and still being discovered. You make your own natural cannabinoids (endocannabinoids), known as 2-AG and anandamide which are byproducts of break down of Omega-6.
If your natural production or action of these natural compounds becomes deficient, your body will no longer be in homeostasis and you can experience a wide range of effects.
Keeping this amazing and wide-reaching system balanced is important. Supplementing with CBD products can help achieve this but it is best to be combined with a well-balanced diet and moderate exercise.
