The Endocannabinoid system, CBD, & YOU
CBD and other residual cannabinoids in hemp oil — like those found in the HMB products, interact with the body’s internal Endocannabinoid System (ECS). This system, found in all mammals, including domestic pets, regulates body functions like mood, pain, appetite, sleep, temperature, and even immune system responses. The ECS continually addresses these functions to keep them in balance or “homeostasis.”
A PROPERLY FUNCTIONING ENDOCANNABINOID SYSTEM IS FUNDAMENTAL FOR OPTIMAL HEALTH & WELL-BEING.
WHAT IS THE ENDOCANNABINOID SYSTEM (ECS)?
The Endocannabinoid System (ECS) is a part of your body that helps you stay healthy. It can be found all over your body – like in your brain, organs, glands, and connective tissues. The ECS helps keep you healthy by regulating some important things like your immune system and nervous system.
What makes the system an “endo”-cannabinoid system is that our bodies naturally produce neurotransmitters similar to CBD and other cannabinoids. Our body creates endocannabinoids; they are not as strong as phytocannabinoids (cannabinoids from hemp). So when supplementing the body with CBD, we’re building a more robust response to something our bodies are naturally creating!
The Endocannabinoid System is involved in regulating many basic functions of the human body, including:
Memory and learning

HOW DOES CBD HELP THE ENDOCANNABINOID SYSTEM?
The medicinal benefits that come from the proper use of CBD are seemingly limitless, given the current science! CB2 receptors are primarily found in the immune system that binds with CBD and works as an anti-inflammatory agent for our body. There are immune-boosting functions of CB2 that are activated by the proper use of CBD, which includes moderating the intoxicating effects of THC (aka psychoactive or high).
The Endocannabinoid System (ECS) is a bridge between body and mind; its complexity cannot be denied. The cannabinoids present within our bodies – such as CBD – work to interact with the several different types of cannabinoid receptors found within us, including CB1, CB2, GPR55, and GPR18. These cells work to activate the ECS, which in turn works to keep our entire system working within normal parameters and encourages us for maximum levels of performance.
In recent years, researchers from all parts of the world have come to acknowledge the vast medical potential of the ECS. Summarized in a 2006 review by the National Institutes of Health (NIH):
SUPPLEMENTING THIS EXTENSIVE SELF-REGULATORY SYSTEM WITH PLANT-DERIVED CANNABINOIDS IS A POTENTIAL WAY TO ENCOURAGE & MAINTAIN OPTIMAL HEALTH.
CBD’s impact on the ECS, as well as its other effects on the human body, indicate that this substance may be useful in treating a variety of medical conditions. Cannabidiol’s neuroprotectant qualities help to protect the brain from injury. WADA, or the World Anti-Doping Agency, recently removed CBD from the banned substance list because of its safety and efficacy in helping the body to recover and repair itself.
Medical research involving the possible uses of CBD is ongoing, the list of conditions CBD could potentially treat continues to grow. Currently, the list includes the conditions listed above, as well as mood disorders, diabetes, heart disease, glaucoma, asthma, stroke, and many more.
