Our Body and CBD
Endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a natural pain regulator system present in our body.
It is a large and complex network of cannabis-like compounds (like 2 AG and anandamide) and cell receptors
which influence several functions in the body such as appetite, sleep, pain, mood, and immune system.
Put simply, the endocannabinoid system plays a vital role in maintaining many of the body's functions and overall health.
ECS has 2 main receptors called CB1 and CB2. CB1 is present in the central nervous system of the body,
organs, and connective tissues while CB2 receptors are present in the immune system, body's periphery,
and other associated structures.
When CB2 receptors become activated, they can be extremely effective in treating painful inflammatory conditions.
And that is what CBD does.
