The Endocannabinoid System

When people hear the word cannabinoid, many think THC, cannabis or “getting high” and may write off anything they hear after concerning cannabinoids. You may want to take a second look as cannabinoids interact with a system that already occurs inside your body; The Endocannabinoid System. Did you know this is the only system known in the biological world that directly interacts and coexists with another living organism, the cannabis plant?

Did you know your own body produces cannabinoids called endocannabinoids (endo meaning within)? Endocannabinoids are tiny molecules whose role is to activate cannabinoid receptors. The cannabinoid receptors are located on the cell surface. The endocannabinoids are broken down by metabolic enzymes after they are used by the body.

The Endocannabinoid System is thought to help regulate certain body functions like sleep, memory, sexual reproduction and sensation to pain to name a few.

When the Endocannabinoid system is stimulated and activated by outside cannabinoids such as CBD (Cannabidiol-NON psychoactive cannabinoid), scientists are uncovering health benefits across the board. This makes sense seeing how this system plays a role in major functions.

One of the most effective ways to activate your endocannabinoid system is through under the tongue tinctures such as Nutricanna’s 250mg, 750mg & 1800mg CBD tinctures.

Under the human tongue exist thousands of CBD receptors. When your body obtains CBD through under the tongue absorption method, the CBD is made bioavailable almost instantly for your system to be activated at a cellular level.

Pain management through CBD regiments is becoming increasingly popular with the medical community. As our society realizes that CBD is not a bandage, but a molecule that can help our bodies heal themselves, the medical community’s stance on this once forbidden plant is finally changing for the better.
