The Endocannabinoid and Body Systems If your body is a symphony, your ECS is the conductor
- CBD (Cannabidiol) is one of over 100 compounds found in cannabis and hemp. It is one of the two most prevalent compounds in cannabis. CBD is in a class of molecules called phytocannabinoids. It is non-intoxicating and non-psychotropic.
- Cannabinoid receptors are found throughout the human body embedded in the cell membranes that are responsible for regulating multiple processes that we experience daily including mood, appetite, memory and pain sensation. When they’re activated, it can be by naturally occurring endocannabinoids, as well as by the phytocannabinoids found in hemp and cannabis
- CBD binds itself to the G-protein receptors known as TRPV-1. TRVP-1 receptors are involved in regulating pain, body temperature, and inflammation. It is through this bind that scientists believe CBD helps with inflammation and pain relief.
