CBD and the Endocannabinoid System
The Endocannabinoid System is actually a very recent discovery. It was found when researches were studying the impacts of CBD and other cannabinoids on the nervous system. The ECS is implicated in sensations of pleasure, pain and regulates anxiety, appetite and multiple reflexes in the human body.
Interestingly enough the ECS produce chemicals very similar to CBD. This chemical similarity is what allows cannabinoids like CBD to take effect inside the human body. These chemicals are called endocannabinoids, which help neurotransmitters in the body perform their functions.
Many physiological and psychological conditions are caused by an imbalance of cannabinoids in the brain and nervous system. CBD can effectively replace any shortages of endocannabinoids to provide its therapeutic impacts.
When combined as part of treatment for psychological disorders, CBD can help with insomnia, anxiety and depression. Each of these conditions is significantly associated with the endocannabinoid system and endocannabinoid imbalances.
