One of the most exciting things about cannabis and hemp, and health products that can be created from such, are the relationship between cannabinoids (like CBD) and our body’s Endocannabinoid System (ECS) that regulates many aspects of ‘homeostasis’ through CB1 and CB2 receptors.
“Broadly speaking, the endocannabinoid system comprises two receptors (CB1 and CB2), two endogenous compounds that activate these receptors (endocannabinoids N-arachidonoylethanolamide [AEA] and 2-arachidonoylglycerol [2-AG]), and two metabolic enzymes (fatty acid amide hydrolase and monoacylglycerol lipase) that control the synthesis and breakdown of these endocannabinoids. Over the past decade, research in rats and mice along with supportive evidence in cannabis users has shown that CB1 and CB receptors located in the prefrontal cortex or the ventral tegmental area play key roles in regulating impulsive behaviors.”
When we don’t feel good, whether we feel anxiety emotionally or pain physically, much of why we feel this way can be traced back to how our body is reacting chemically with things we find in our environment. It is both complex, and very simple. What is exciting and should give us reason for optimism, is the many potential therapeutic effects of cannabinoids to treat our Endocannabinoid System and help us to feel better – both physically and emotionally.
