Like a tightrope walker, the human body seeks balance. Your body
has developed a highly honed ability to achieve an internal state of
equilibrium, referred to as homeostasis. This system of checks and
balances to keep you functioning on an even keel is influenced by the
endocannabinoid system. Both internal (endogenous) and external
cannabinoids (CBD) affect the cannabinoid system,
which means they have a role in this balancing act.
Endocannabinoid System and Homeostasis
consists of cannabinoid receptors located throughout the central and
peripheral nervous system and immune system. These receptors bind to
both endocannabinoids and external cannabinoids, such as
The hypothalamus contains cannabinoid receptors, and
shows that the endocannabinoids that bind to these receptors help
regulate homeostasis. Disruptions in this process, through illness,
injury or medication, can affect homeostasis.
The endocannabinoid system helps control everything from mood, cognition, movement, appetite, immune response, sleep, ovulation, and sperm development.
It's responsible for regulating balance in our
body’s immune response, communication between cells, appetite and
metabolism, memory, and more. In spite of the integral role this system
takes on, until recently it remained an unknown part of the human body’s
Named for the plant that inspired its discovery, the
endocannabinoid system’s importance is only just becoming understood by
the medical community. It is through this system that the naturally
occurring cannabinoids interact with our bodies
and trigger its beneficial effects. With the potential to greatly affect
the way our bodies work, it is essential that we recognize how to
maintain a healthy endocannabinoid system.
