What is Clinical Endocannabinoid Deficiency?

By Tanya Martin February 20, 2020 0 comments

The ECS (endocannabinoid system) is present in nearly all lifeforms other than insects. Receptors for the ECS are found in the brain and throughout the body. Some argue it may be the most important system we have as it regulates nearly every function of our bodies. If this system gets out of whack the whole body may suffer. As further understanding of this system is achieved we may find the cause of many poorly understood disorders and develop protocols for treatment.

Clinical Endocannabinoid Deficiency (CECD) is the medical theory that a deficiency or overabundance in endocannabinoids is the underlying problem in certain diseases. Headaches, stomach issues, and full body pain are currently being looked at as possible effects of CECD. These conditions were often labeled psychosomatic as no root cause or simple diagnostic procedure could be performed to confirm a patient's ailments. As the research is completed we may see a test developed to look at the functioning of the ECS and have available treatment options if it is found to be out of balance. People suffering from these ailments could finally have validity for the painful, debilitating conditions from which they suffer. These ailments are often found together and by targeting the ECS we may find a treatment that would alleviate the symptoms of each of these in one treatment option. Given the small list of side effects reported in the use of cannabis therapeutics, many may potentially find them a welcome alternative to their current treatment options. 

Treatment for these conditions does not necessarily require cannabis, there are other ways to mediate the functioning of the ECS. Exercise stimulates the release of the endogenous cannabinoid, anandamide. Anandamide is what gives runners the “high” we often hear about and will help boost the ECS.  Probiotics and prebiotics have also been seen to give relief, particularly for stomach issues, and may help bring some balance to the ECS. Foods high in essential fatty acids, dark chocolate and, some herbs may also bring some benefits to the ECS. Some theorize a boost to the ECS through cannabis therapeutics may be very helpful for many who suffer from these and other conditions. More research is needed to find which cannabinoids and dosage protocols would be optimal in the treatment of such conditions. Until then people are left to do there own experimenting to find what may help them relieve the symptoms that interfere with everyday life. We have many products here at Discover CBD that others are experimenting with in hopes of gaining some relief. We would be happy to talk to you and educate you about our products so you can feel confident in the choice you make if you want to try CBD.
