Endocannabinoid Receptor System
The Endocannabinoid Receptor System In Action
There is a significant amount of information about the operation of the human body that is still being discovered. One of the latest systems in the body to be determined is the Endocannabinoid System or ECS.
This system includes specific types of neurotransmitters, which are endocannabinoids, that occur in all mammalian bodies and brains. These endocannabinoids bind or attach CB1 and CB2, the cannabinoid receptors that are responsible for the regulation of specific body and brain functions such as pain, memory, and mood. Premium Hemp Extract contains these primary cannabinoids, allowing for optimal functioning of these receptors and the systems they regulate.
Understanding the Role of CB1 and CB2 Receptors
The two different types of receptors are found in different areas of the body. CB1 receptors are found in the brain, central nervous system, and in the spinal cord. In the hippocampus, cerebellum, and the basal ganglia, they are responsible for supporting functions such as sleep, memory, pain management and control, motor regulation, and even mood.
The CB2 receptors work on cells within the immune system of the body. When they bind with the endocannabinoids, they stimulate the immune system to combat inflammation and to help to reduce pain levels and tissue damage in the body.
Creating a Balance
Both CB1 and CB2 receptors link with the cannabinoids in Pure Hemp Extract to trigger activation. This activation of the receptor allows the neurotransmitters to send messages through the body to create harmony and balance, a state known as homeostasis. This optimizes the various systems in the body, leading to healthy functioning and healing at a cellular level.
