We are learning more about the complex inter-relationships between the Endocannabinod System (ECS) and other systems in our bodies.
We naturally make ‘endocannabinoids’ within us – these are compounds that are known in the body and a part of every human being. Since our body is ‘pre-wired’ to be responsive to cannabinoids (through CB1 and CB2 receptors), there may be many symbiotic benefits to taking various cannabinoids (or phytocannabinoids) for health.
In a 2007 study, it was found that an increased administration of a probiotic increased the number of cannabinoid receptors in the guts of rats – reducing abdominal pain. Since our ‘gut’ is at the very cornerstone of our energy levels, metabolism, and body weight – this is significant.
“While there is still much more to learn about the roles of modifying specific gut bacteria, their metabolites, and their effects on the bioactive lipid components of the ECS, there is irrefutable evidence of a ‘gut-endocannabinoid axis’ akin to the ‘gut-brain axis,’ and it remains clear that any health benefits obtained by using probiotics and prebiotics involve the endocannabidiome. This is yet another example of the complex interplay involving systems biology and the ECS.”
