Endocannabinoid System Revealed

Tina Butt



Have you seen this word and did not understand what it meant?

I know when I saw this I was like “cannibis system what is that”. Cannibis is “bad” right!?

The Endocannibinoid System(ECS) is located throughout the central nervous system in our bodies, including the brain!

The ECS was discovered when scientists were researching how cannibis affects the body; found to promote homeostasis in the body. We want all body systems to work together; a well balanced body means a healthy body right?

Endocannabinoids attach to receptors in the body, including,

  • the nervous system
  • glands
  • immune system
  • organs
  • connective tissue

Affecting everything from

  • sleep
  • appetite
  • pain
  • inflammation
  • memory
  • reproduction
  • mood

There are 3 Primary components of the ECS:

  1. Endocannabinoids
  2. Enzymes
  3. Receptors

Cannabinoids are naturally produced within the body that are active compounds that interact with ECS receptors.

Compounds found outside the body like CBD and THC are exogenous cannibinoids. CBD is a Phytocannabinoid which means it originates from plants (phyto-).

There are 2 different endocannabinoid receptors: CB1, CB2. Each one has a different function in the body. But they both work to reduce inflammation in the body.

Remember: Inflammation is what causes many diseases in the body.

This is like a lock and key system: a CBD/Hemp supplement is the key that unlocks the ECS system to exert a function such as decrease pain, inflammation or level mood or even assist with decreasing appetite and supporting memory.

If you think about it, this system is amazing and miraculous!

Why don’t more people know about this?

That’s why I am sharing.

Every day I come into contact with someone who has one of the above problems that I listed above. That means every day there is someone living in pain!

Pain from mental health disease.

Pain from chronic injury.

Chronic pain leads to chronic mental health disease.

Do you see the cycle? I do!

Reaching for pain pills either over the counter, prescripton or ellicit drug use is not the answer.

The answer lies in your own body! Use what you have been given!

Finding a natural CBD/Hemp oil can be very beneficial.

How do you know which one is “good”? Do your research!

  • When you are reading ingredients you want to see Hemp oil as one of the first 3 ingredients!
  • Pay attention to where it is sourced from, look for made in the USA.
  • How is it processed.
  • How is it ingested or applied?
  • You do not need THC, this is the hallucinagenic property of the plant adn is not needed for pain relief and overall body function.

There are so many ways to use CBD/Hemp oil.

  • lotions, creams, subliqual, drinks/liquid
  • Find what works for you and your needs!

I use CBD in many forms to help with my chornic joint and muscle pain, headaches, occasional anxiety, PMS and just overall balance daily. I spent a lot of time researching CBD/Hemp and its uses and found what works for me through trial and error. Here is the link to the supplement I love and use every day! http://shop.myqsciences.com/tbutt
