The Endocannabinoid System: Endocannabinoids in the Human Body

It’s quite ironic how heartily people disapprove of CBD and other cannabinoid-based products because the human body already produces these chemicals. Endocannabinoids are a group of chemicals that work exclusively with the human nervous system to modulate a diverse range of cognitive functions. More precisely, endocannabinoids have been associated with mood regulation[1], synaptic activity and have been observed to be already present in the mammalian brain[2] even before people began using cannabis or CBD.

We must understand these biological systems before we pass judgment on whether CBD is good or bad for us as herbal supplements. The argument here is that if the human body produces chemicals like CBD by itself, and if the WHO accepts that CBD has a good safety profile—then what’s the problem? Perhaps, if we understood these things and knew of how CBD took effect and interacted with the body, we’d see that there’s a good chance that CBD might have a role to play in supporting our health and wellness.

 

 

What is the Endocannabinoid System?

 

Sticking to the appropriate medical language, the Endocannabinoid System (ECS) refers to the following collection[1]of organic compounds and structures:

  • Endocannabinoids
  • Cannabinoid Receptors
  • The enzymes involved in the creation and degeneration of endocannabinoids

According to research, there are two types of receptors that are responsible for the effects of endocannabinoids and also other cannabinoids like CBD—CB1 and CBD2. There are a lot of CB1 and CB2 receptors found in the nervous system. These receptors work with endocannabinoids for a wide range of purposes.

Ever since the ECS was discovered, people have been looking into how CBD and the endocannabinoids take their effect. Much of this research tries to reconstruct how cannabinoids were used in ancient medicine and why—if at all—the treatments in those times were effective.

What Does the Research Say?

 

We already know of Epidiolex—as a CBD-based medication to help treat epilepsy in children, there’s a lot of research that focuses on the possibility of using CBD as a health supplement. Some even go so far as to say that CBD-based products show great promise for the treatment of pain[1], anxiety[2] and insomnia[3].

All the research points out the interaction of CBD with the Endocannabinoid System and how endocannabinoids/phytocannabinoids (cannabinoids from hemp) interact with the human body. While there’s still a need for more research on whether these chemicals can prove to be therapeutic for the conditions we’ve mentioned above—there’s a lot of potential.
