The endocannabinoid system


When people hear the word cannabinoid, many think of THC, cannabis, or "getting high" and may copy everything they hear about cannabinoids. You may want to take a second look at how cannabinoids interact with a system that is already in your body. The endocannabinoid system. Did you know that this is the only system known in the biological world that interacts and coexists directly with another living organism, the cannabis plant?

Did you know that your own body produces cannabinoids called endocannabinoids (endo means within)? Endocannabinoids are tiny molecules whose job it is to activate cannabinoid receptors. The cannabinoid receptors are on the cell surface. The endocannabinoids are broken down by metabolic enzymes after they have been used by the body.

The endocannabinoid system is believed to help regulate certain bodily functions such as sleep, memory, sexual reproduction, and pain sensation, to name a few.

When the endocannabinoid system is stimulated and activated by external cannabinoids such as CBD (Cannabidiol-NON psychoactive cannabinoid), scientists discover health benefits across the board. It is useful to see how this system plays a role in important functions.

One of the most effective ways to activate your endocannabinoid system is under the tongue tinctures such as Nutricanna's 250 mg, 750 mg and 1800 mg CBD tinctures.

There are thousands of CBD receptors under the human tongue. When your body receives CBD through the tongue absorption method, the CBD is made bioavailable almost immediately so that your system can be activated at the cellular level.

Pain treatment by CBD regiments is becoming increasingly popular in the medical community. When our society realizes that CBD is not a bandage, but a molecule that can help our body heal itself, the medical community's attitude towards this once-forbidden plant is finally changing for the better.
