It’s more likely than you think. But how can you know for sure? Well for starters, your Endocannabinoid System (henceforth referred to as ECS) regulates a lot of important functions in your body. And without a well maintained ECS, you’ll start to feel sluggish and mentally drained more often, among other problems. Areas the ECS affects, but aren’t limited to: Memory Retention Quality Sleep Fertility Mood and Anxiety Appetite Liver Function And more. It is not an exaggeration to say the ECS is one of the most useful functions your body has to keep you stable and healthy AND one of the most under-understood parts of our regulatory systems. Your body wants to continue its homeostasis (which is the stability of your internal biology), and few systems work harder than your ECS. And when some illness or injury impacts your body, the ECS works harder to return you to good (read: normal) health. But How does CBD react to your ECS? The exact science behind it isn’t known yet, but scientists believe CBD interacts with your endocannabinoids and prevents them from being broken down, allowing them to continue work on your body, pushing toward homeostasis long after they should have stopped or disappeared. The difference here with THC is that they will bind to your CB1 receptors, causing a high, while CBD will neither stick to your CB1 nor your CB2 receptors, while still providing benefits. As it stands, taking CBD Oil seems to support general health and well being, without the mind altering states that come with THC. But how do I know if I’m Endocannabinoid Deficient? Scientists still have a tough time deciphering ECS deficiency, but it starts with a trip to the doctor to get an exact list of symptoms. Bottom line? You can’t know for sure (yet). But for now, the government has finally recognized the positive effects CBD has on the body to promote higher health and general well being. And while the exact methodology isn’t known to us, a healthy ECS boosted by CBD seems like our best foot forward.
