What is the endocannabinoid system? Prepare your eyes because you are about to read the answer about one of the most important questions you can ever ask.
The endocannabinoid system – The Basics
Of all the New Years resolutions you are considering. Make one of them feeding the endocannabinoid system or ‘ECS’.
This relatively new biological system found in all mammals. Including me and you. A brand new area of science that is only just being realised. It is an exciting time to be alive for sure.
It’s time to start seeing your CBD oil as a preventative rather than a fix. It is far better to never have the issues in the first place.
Put very simply our bodies have a system like the limbic or digestive. It is governed by tiny molecules called endocannabinoids.
These molecules made by our own body, resemble cannabinoids. Endo – inside, cannabinoid – CBD etc. Yes, our bodies make molecules just like THC and CBD.
It also regulates homeostasis which is absolutely vital to well-being.
The Endocannabinoid system without Anandamide?
The system is useless without it, there’s the short and sharp of it. Without, our bodies would be unable to function properly, quickly.
This is why we see such profound results and hear incredible stories from our customers. Cannabinoids present in CBD oils and products replicate the actions of anandamide.
Their powers combine to supercharge this incredible system.
As we age, our bodies produce less and less anandamide and we fall prey to some of the issues aforementioned. The importance of the endocannabinoid system?
For us, this system is up there with oxygen, food, and water as one of the vitals of life. Next time you are at the supermarket pick up a tin of SMA baby powder and read the label.
Amongst other vital ingredients, anandamide is added to the mix to replicate mothers breast milk.
The Endocannabinoid system & whole plant extract
Many people think the endocannabinoid system is nothing without the entourage effect. Every part of this amazing plant is needed to complete the full lock and key mechanism.
Orange juice with bits in. That’s how we like to think of the ECS. You need the bits when selecting your CBD oil. Some CBD oil is made with crystallized CBD shown in the image below.
You can tell a CBD isolate oil from the lighter color. These oils will still work to some extent but they do not contain the bits we speak of.
If you are suffering from serious problems you will need to utilise the ECS to it’s fullest potential. With everything combined the entourage effect starts to work its magic on the endocannabinoid system.
So what is the endocannabinoid system doing? It is looking after you…
What next for the endocannabinoid system?
At the CanaTech conference in London, the CanaXen.com team sat and listened. We heard about the future of cannabinoid products, the use of terpenes and all the other parts of the plant.
Like a whole plant extract only with selected ingredients to target specific issues. The company in California, Tilray has made huge strides in targeted cannabinoid therapy in 2018.
We saw a presentation regarding conditions such as cancer and serious illnesses. They were targeting specific conditions with specific terpenes, flavonoids & cannabinoids.
They could affect huge changes in the effectiveness of the oils. This will be the next big thing in CBD and medical cannabis oil treatment.
What does the future hold for the endocannabinoid system? Its future is very very bright, so too will yours once you start to feed your ECS…
