Surprising Facts about Your Body’s Endocannabinoid System

By Rachelle Gordon October 05, 2021

The human body is a remarkable machine, particularly the brain and its many different receptors and synapses, which control the mind’s response to different chemicals or stimuli. It turns out that humans have cannabinoid receptors, and in fact a full endocannabinoid system (ECS). Scientists found that these receptors help control homeostasis - in layman’s terms, they keep the body balanced. So how do our cannabinoid receptors help our body function, and what all can they do? Read on to find out!

The two main cannabinoid receptors, known as CB1 and CB2, are activated by cannabis and hemp derivatives, including CBD. Scientists are especially interested in the ECS as it relates to the treatment of dozens of different ailments, including epilepsy, cancer, Crohn's and Colitis, Parkinson’s Disease, PTSD, chronic pain, and more.

A recent study found a correlation between working out and memory due to the ECS’s response to exercise. Researchers found that during exercise, the CB1 receptor is activated due to the release of a chemical called anandamide, which has similar effects as THC.

“Our results can be supported by several studies showing that exercise induces an increase in circulating levels of anandamide in addition to activate cannabinoid signaling,” explained one member of the research team.

The study went on to state that CB1 activity can promote healthy cell growth in the part of the brain responsible for learning and memory, called the hippocampus. This is just one example of how the endocannabinoid system can affect different parts of the body and its development.

More studies are required to examine whether these results are typical for most people using CBD, but these initial results are exciting for those people exploring the power of the ECS system. If you are interested in how you ECS can help promote health, you may consider looking into CBD as a daily supplement. DiscoverCBD offers CBD in many forms, including tinctures and oils, at levels comparable to those used in the aforementioned studies.
