WHAT IS CBD?

The Power of Nature

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.

CBD and the Endocannabinoid System

Cannabinoids bind with the CB1 and CB2 receptors in the endocannabinoid system throughout the body. CBD helps the endocannabinoid system function optimally which allows biological systems and processes in the body to function properly. This helps the whole body find homeostasis and allows us to maintain overall good health.
