The endocannabinoid system’s main function is to maintain the human body in homeostasis by keeping the body in biological harmony in response to the changes in the environment. According to taxonomic studies the endocannabinoid system evolved over 500 million years ago and is present in all vertebrates.
Initially, it was suggested that endocannabinoid receptors were only located in the brain and nerves but studies have shown that the receptors are located throughout the body including the skin, immune cells, bone, fat tissue, liver, skeletal muscle, heart, blood vessels, kidney, and gastrointestinal tract.
The endocannabinoid system is involved in a wide variety of processes such as pain, memory, mood, appetite, stress, sleep, metabolism, immune and reproductive function.
CBD and your immune system
Our endocannabinoid system plays a major roll in keeping our immune system in balance. Our immune system’s job is to fight off the common cold to warding off serious diseases. We have cannabinoid receptors located throughout our immune system that help to regulate inflammation (our body's natural response to infection or injury).
According to researchers’ endocannabinoids are strong immunomodulators that play a role in regulating immune cells including T-cells, B cells, lymphocytes, macrophages, and natural killer cells (natural defense to cancer cells). The two immunomodulators, anandamide, and 2-AG have both been shown to slow tumor growth and incite cell death of cancer cells.
It is important to make sure our endocannabinoid system is properly nourished with the phytocannabinoids from cannabis to help to support it can play a role in a strong immune system, prevent disease, and staying healthy.
Taking a full spectrum CBD oil as a daily tonic for the endocannabinoid system. Tonic meaning to tonify your system, bringing constant balance, restoration, and daily support without being overly stimulating or sedating. Full-spectrum CBD oil provides a wide arrange of phytocannabinoids from the cannabis plant to support the endocannabinoid system and preventing the breakdown of our natural endocannabinoids. Like taking vitamins, take CBD daily to stay healthy, and to keep your body in harmony.
