The Endocannabinoid System (ECS)

The Endocannabinoid System plays a major role in maintaining balance in many physiologic functions. If the body suffers a lack of endocannabinoids, the result is Clinical Endocannabinoid Deficiency.

CB1 Receptors

Primarily found in the brain and central nervous system, and to a lesser extent in other tissues.

Brain: CB1
Regulates: Neurological health (pain, anxiety, mood, sleep, focus, motor skills, short-term memory)

Lungs: CB1
Regulates: Respiratory health, asthma

Heart: CB1
Regulates: Inflammation, atherosclerosis

Immune System: CB2
Regulates: The body’s natural defense system

CB2 Receptors

Mostly located in the periphery, especially cells associated with the immune system.

Skin: CB2
Regulates: Dermatological inflammatory conditions (acne, scar, psoriasis, eczema)

Stomach: CB2
Regulates: Appetite, digestive support, gut health

Reproductive Organs: CB2
Regulates: Men’s and women’s health

Bones: CB2
Regulates: Bone strength, rheumatoid arthritis

 

How Does It Work?

Anandamide
A cannabinoid that occurs naturally in the body, Anandamide is responsible for activating the CB1 and CB2 receptors, which triggers the body’s natural protective response.

FAAH (fatty acid amide hydrolase)
Breaks down Anandamide, limiting its ability to activate the CB1 and CB2 receptors.

CBD
Supports natural endocannabinoid production and activity by slowing down Anandamide’s transport into the cell, thus decreasing breakdown by FAAH.
