The Endocannabinoid System

Learn About The Endocannabinoid System (ECS)

The ECS is controlled by chemicals that our body produces called endocannabinoids. Our endocannabinoids are responsible for keeping our most critical biological functions in balance such as sleep, appetite, the immune system, pain and more. When the body gets out of balance and moves into a state of stress, endocannabinoids go to work to fix the problem. The pharmaceutically active components in the cannabis plant mimic endocannabinoids and therefore can be effective in helping the body manage crises and restore itself after trauma when the body’s endocannabinoids are not able to restore balance on its own.

You are probably wondering, “why does cannabis benefit so many different illnesses?” The short answer is that cannabis can be highly effective in treating pain and inflammation by working in tandem with the endocannabinoid system which, as we just mentioned, controls pain and inflammation. Can you think of a disease that does not come with inflammation and pain?

Some consider the cannabis plant to be one of the most pharmacologically active plants on the planet, containing over 400 active chemical compounds. The unique active components of cannabis are called cannabinoids, which are found alongside other chemical compounds called terpenoids, terpenes and flavonoids. These chemical components work together to provide a wide variety of therapeutic benefits to the human body.

Some studies have shown that isolated components appear to be less effective, but therapeutic nonetheless.
