The Endocannabinoid System ECS) is named after the (Hemp) Cannabis Sativa plant that led to its discovery and is perhaps the most important physiological system involved in establishing and maintaining human health. It manages all other physiological systems of the body. It amazing how the Endocannabinoid definition is not very well known at all.
Endocannabinoids and their receptors are found throughout the body: in the brain, organs, connective tissues, glands, and immune cells. In each tissue, the cannabinoid system performs different tasks, but the goal is always the same: homeostasis, the maintenance of a stable internal environment despite fluctuations in the external environment.
To further the endocannabinoid definition, there are two types of cannabinoid receptors found throughout the body (CB1 and CB2), but they are most abundant in the brain and immune system respectively. In a nutshell, your ECS is responsible for making sure your entire body is working optimally.
The Endocannabinoid system is involved with many basic functions. It is believed to play a role in memory, mood, sleep, appetite, pain and immune response. It also affects a number of physiological processes including circulation, energy metabolism and organ function.
As a result, some scientists believe the overall function of this system is to regulate homeostasis.
Homeostasis is a key element in the biology of all living things. It is best described as the ability to maintain stable internal conditions that are necessary for survival. Disease is a result of failing to achieve homeostasis.
How’s that for an Endocannabinoid Definition of system functionality?
Best CBD for a full functioning and healthy Endocannabinoid system. This is an amazing amount of CBD and it’s Water Soluble.
Endocannabinoid Definition Expanded
Now we’ll really expand on the endocannabinoid definition. Let me run down a short list of the medical benefits CBD has to offer. If the Endocannabinoid system manages all physiological systems in the body, then we need to see what the other physiological systems of the body do to better understand that by enhancing, reinforcing, or boosting our ECS, then we are in fact enhancing, reinforcing, or boosting all the physiological systems of the body.
If it takes care of your integumentary system then it manages the condition of the skin, hair, nails, and exocrine glands. By managing the skeletal system, it is responsible for the entire framework of the body which consists of the bones and other connective tissues, which protects and supports the body tissues and internal organs. The human skeleton contains 206 bones.
When your ECS manages your muscular system is manages the organ system consisting of skeletal, smooth and cardiac muscles, which permits movement of the body, maintains posture, and circulates blood throughout the body.
How about the lymphatic system? The lymphatic system is a network of tissues and organs that help rid the body of toxins, waste and other unwanted materials. The primary function of the lymphatic system is to transport lymph, a fluid containing infection-fighting white blood cells, throughout the body. It is the network of vessels through which lymph drains from the tissues into the blood.
Our respiratory system is a series of organs responsible for taking in oxygen and expelling carbon dioxide. The primary organs of the respiratory system are lungs, which carry out this exchange of gases as we breathe.
The digestive system is a group of organs working together to convert food into energy and basic nutrients to feed the entire body. Food passes through a long tube inside the body known as the alimentary canal or the gastrointestinal tract (GI tract).
I know most of you know these systems, but I’m illustrating a point. The nervous system is the network of nerve cells and fibers that transmits nerve impulses between parts of the body.
The endocrine system is the collection of glands that produce hormones that regulate metabolism, growth and development, tissue function, sexual function, reproduction, sleep, and mood, among other things.
The cardiovascular system, A.K.A circulatory system, is the system that circulates blood and lymph through the body, consisting of the heart, blood vessels, blood, lymph, and the lymphatic vessels and glands.
The urinary system, also known as the renal system, consists of the kidneys, ureters, bladder, and the urethra.
The final physiological system we have in our bodies and definitely the most well-known and understood is the reproductive system… The organs and glands in the body that aid in the production of new individuals (reproduction).
To maintain an even and well balanced endocannabinoid system and to add a pep in your step, the absolute best product is our 500mg CBD Peppermint Tincture. I say peppermint specifically because the Peppermint oil naturally decreases anxiety and depression. It also helps with digestive problems, especially Acid-Reflux.
Pretty interesting stuff right? I bet the endocannabinoid definition blows your mind doesn’t it? I couldn’t believe how important the ECS was until I read it from a most reliable source. Since our ECS is so important, why isn’t CBD being shouted off the hill tops? Did you know that both Google and YouTube refuse to let CBD ads run through their Google Ads campaign and YouTube Ad campaign? Ya… it’s restricted. Even when it comes from the very Legal Hemp plant.
As far as CBD helping the ECS and in turn your other systems, You don’t have to just take my word for it. Read what the worldly acclaimed National Center for Biotechnology Information has to say about it in their amazing article, “The Endocannabinoid System as an Emerging Target of Pharmacotherapy”. Hard to argue with those guys. Really great article. You should read it.
