The Endocannabinoid System (ECS) has receptors all over your body that respond to various cannabinoids found in food like chocolate and mangoes and in marijuana and hemp.
Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of the main cannabinoids found in hemp, but can also be found in marijuana. In the nervous system CBD reduces seizures and convulsions and can also reduce anxiety because it is tranquilizing. In the digestive system it can reduce contractions in the small intestine.
Within the muscular and skeletal systems CBD can reduce inflammation, supress muscle spasms, and protect against bone loss.
In the endocrine system, CBD kills or slows bacteria, reduces blood sugar levels, and can treat psoriasis, while in the circulatory system it reduces risk of artery blockage and increases cerebral blood flow.
CBD provides whole body protection by inhibiting cell growth in tumors and cancer cells and can reduce or eliminate pain.
Doctors have discovered that some people suffer from Endocannabinoid Deficency Syndrome which presents itself as frequent migraines, Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, and IBS. More research is needed to see if there are genetic markers for this.
