Endocannabinoid System CBD and Terpenes

So you may be asking yourself, what is the Endocannabinoid System and how can CBD and terpenes help me?

First, let’s start with the Endocannabinoid System.  You’re no doubt familiar with body systems such as the circulatory, digestive and nervous systems.  However, you may not be as familiar with the Endocannabinoid System.

Discovered in the late 1990s, the Endocannabinoid System (or ECS for short), plays a role in keeping our body in a ‘balanced’ state (homeostasis) when it encounters environmental changes.  Endocannabinoid receptors, which make up the ECS, are located throughout our bodies, with concentrations in the brain and the immune system.

When a person takes CBD, it interacts and binds with these receptors.   Research shows that this interaction may help improve your ECS.

Terpenes are compounds found in every plant and are responsible for their flavor, smell and color that make each plant unique.  Terpenes may also provide wellness benefits like their cannabinoid partners.
