So what is the encannabinoidal system (ECS)?
The ECS is a collection of cell receptors within our bodies. Scientists discovered this system in the 1990s. The ECS is designed to repair damaged cells and provide a state of internal stability necessary for survival, despite fluctuations in our external environment. A human’s endocannabinoid system affects many regions of the body, including functions of the immune system, the central nervous system (including the brain), organs, connective tissue, and glands. The ECS assists in various biological tasks, including appetite, analgesia, energy & balance, immune function, memory, metabolism, sleep, stress response, thermoregulation, and the function of the autonomic nervous system. The ECS works synergistically with a mammal’s endocannabinoid system. A cannabinoid is a compound that fits into a cannabinoid receptor. Cannabinoids work with the Endocannabinoid System (ECS), which is a vast and vital receptor system essential for maintaining homeostasis, or good health. This receptor system exists in the immune system, the central nervous system, and within many organs. The ECS accepts our bodies’ own endocannabinoids as well as the cannabinoids found in hemp.
