Endocannabinoid System (ECS)
The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a receptor system found throughout the body and is involved in regulating many of our critical biological processes. These systems and processes have a direct effect on sleep, memory, mood, metabolism, inflammation and many other vital aspects of our health. There are two different cannabinoid receptors in our bodies: CB1 and CB2 Receptors.
CB1 receptors are primarily located in the central nervous system. This includes brain, nerve cells, lungs, heart, spinal cord and reproductive organs. CB1 receptors play a role in the regulation of mood, pain, sleep and motor skills.
CB2 receptors are primarily found in the immune and lymphatic Systems, which regulate inflammation, digestive, hearth and stomach function.
