Cannabinoids in our Body:
Shortly after the first cannabinoid was isolated from the Hemp plant, scientists discovered that the human body produces similar substances on its own. These substances are now known as “endogenous cannabinoids”. Not only do humans produce their own cannabinoids but they also have receptors designed specifically to recognize and respond to the endogenous cannabinoids produced. Together, the body’s endogenous cannabinoids and the receptors that bind with them form the endocannabinoid system. This system is responsible for a number of functions within the human body, such as maintaining balance or homeostasis.
Unfortunately, a variety of external factors can affect the our ability to properly maintain the endocannabinoid system. In cases where homeostasis is lost and the body falls out of balance, a person may want to supplement their endogenous cannabinoids with cannabinoids from external sources such as Cannabidiod more commonly known as CBD
