   The Science behind the Endocannabinoid System and How It Can Benefit Your Health


It was around 27 years ago that the endocannabinoid system was first discovered through the experimental use of THC when the earliest doctors incorporated natural therapies. Homeopathy, herbal remedies, and acupuncture were prominent treatments in the earliest clinical practices. When pharmaceutical drugs were introduced and medicinal studies standardized in accordance with prescription medication, alternative care became an oddity. Today, ongoing research continues to uncover the profound health benefits of natural therapies and the powerful system that was kept a secret for so long, the endocannabinoid system.

The most popular bodily systems that are explored and taught from school to medicine include the pulmonary, nervous, muscular, and skeletal system. However, there is a system that most medical practitioners wish to keep a secret and that each one of these systems is connected to. This includes your endocannabinoid system or ECS. While not part of the standard clinical study across student textbooks, this very system serves as a powerful means to improve your health.

As more people rely on chronic medication and realize the lack of support received through conventional treatment, they are turning towards alternative remedies. While the medical field continues to introduce incredible advancements, our everlasting well-being relies on supporting our body at its very primal level, and that includes the endocannabinoid system.


What is the Endocannabinoid System?


The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is best described as a receptor and messenger system. It is found in every human and animal system. Many are surprised to discover that the ECS modulates every single system in the body. The ECS includes the cannabinoid receptors CB1 and CB2, the ligands and enzymes.

The endocannabinoid system is remarkable. As it is responsible for modulating all systems within the body, it plays a role in stress, pain management and overall physical imbalances. When your body is imbalanced, it is the endocannabinoid system that works to restore balance. It helps you continue to eat, to rest and to improve your function.


Why the ECS is the Best Kept Secret to Health

The role of the endocannabinoid system was kept a secret because it was supported by the compounds CBD and THC found in the Marijuana plant. THC in investigative research has shown to mirror the effects of the endocannabinoid system. These powerful plant compounds support healing. Unfortunately, doctors using these plants as part of a medical management program were prosecuted and would have to cover high medical costs. As marijuana could not be patented, this type of treatment became obsolete.

The ECS is not only regulated by cannabinoids and compounds such as CBD; it is affected by the foods we consume. When we consume an unhealthy diet, the ECS is unable to function the way it should. Your ECS is affected by emotional stress, an unhealthy diet, chronic prescription use, and environmental damage.
