The EndoCannabinoid System (ECS) is the largest neurotransmitter system in the Human body. It was discovered in 1992 by early cannabis research, which involved analyzing cannabis and it's effects on our human bodies. It was discovered that the ECS plays a crucial role of regulating our physiology, mood, and everyday experience.
EndoCannabinoid receptors are found throughout the entire human body, such as: the brain, organs, connective tissue, glands, and immune cells.
It was discovered that CBD stimulates the endoCannabinoid system, thus major clinical research is being conducted on its benefits. It is known however that the EndoCannabinoid System helps maintain homeostasis (balance of the body).
According to the National Institute of Health, the introduction of CBD or other cannabinoids into the EndoCannabinoid system could be useful for a variety of medical conditions.
Researchers have identified two kinds of cannabinoid receptors: CB1, which is found in the nervous system, connective tissues, and organs, and CB2, which is found in the immune system. Each receptor is linked to various actions. EndoCannabinoids are the substances that stimulate those receptors to get them to do their assigned tasks.
