In 1990, it was discovered that along with the body systems we have known about for quite some time (nervous system, muscular system, endocrine system, ect.) we also have something called the endocannabinoid system. It was originally discovered in the brain, but by 1993 it was discovered that the endocannabinoid receptors were abundant in the gut, liver, heart, kidneys, bones, spleen, blood vessels, lymph cells, and even reproductive organs. This complex system influences the balance that we rely on for overall health – homeostasis.
Cannabinoids are like the grease that keeps your gears running smoothly.
For many people, the endocannabinoids that are made internally are not enough to keep all the systems working well together. Supplementing with CBD and other cannabinoids could be the solution for so many people who are experiencing autoimmune diseases and general hormonal imbalances.
What are you feeding your endocannabinoid system?
