We’ve all heard about the benefits of CBD - how it allegedly affects mood, pain, inflammation, anxiety, seizures, stress, and more! But why? Why does one molecule have an effect on such an array of different bodily and mental functions? Enter the Endocannabinoid System (ECS). We all have one, which means we all have cannabinoids in our bodies - whether or not we have used CBD products a day in our lives. Adding CBD to the mix helps the Endocannabinoid System operate smoothly. There are 3 main components to the ECS: endocannabinoids, endocannabinoid receptors, and enzymes.
