What is CBD and the Endocannabinoid System

Updated: Mar 3

What’s your body telling you from the moment you wake up and until you fall asleep, even the time in between, your body is sending you signals. Thanks to science, we may now have a better understanding of where those signals are coming from.

What is Endocannabinoid System?

The Endocannabinoid System or ECS is a complex network that’s believed to play a vital role in supporting healthy processes and functions throughout the body. They’re in our brain, guts, and throughout the body. Within that system exists countless receptors. The ECS consists mainly of CB1 and CB2 receptors. It also contains the endocannabinoids anandamide and 2-arachidonoyl glycerol. This is where CBD comes in.

What is CBD?

CBD stands for Cannabidiol, a naturally occurring compound within the hemp plant. And unlike THC, CBD does not produce a high. Cannabinoids and CBD work with our body’s ECS to support a state of homeostasis. That includes supporting our mood, memory, sleep and more. Research shows that CBD supports mental and physical health using natural methods. With the Endocannabinoid System touching nearly every part of our daily lives, it is no wonder that so many have been reporting the positive effects of CBD.

Cannabis vs Hemp vs Marijuana

Cannabis, hemp, and marijuana are all terms used to describe different varieties of the same plant species, Cannabis sativa. Hemp is a term used to describe varieties of Cannabis sativa that contain very low levels of THC, the psychoactive compound found in marijuana. Marijuana is a term used to describe varieties of Cannabis sativa that contain higher levels of THC and can produce psychoactive effects. Cannabis is a more general term that can refer to both hemp and marijuana.
