The principal reason that cannabis and in particular Cannabinoids are so effective across a range of conditions is down to the engine management system of the body the endocannabinoid system is an evolutionary development found in the majority of animals. The on-demand control system was unearthed by careful global research and the actually research discovered the endocannabinoids produced by the body during research that came about because they were pieced together in the 1990s in Israel by the research’s actually contracted by the USA to look at the harm Cannabis does to people. The research actually showed that the body produces eternal molecules that interact with a range of receptors in the body. The principal receptors were named CB1 and CB2 after the Cannabinoids that activated them.

Research then went on to prove that the endocannabinoids produced by the body anandamide name by insightful scientists back then using the Sanskrit word for bliss to describe the effect the molecule has on the body. One of the ways you can gauge your endocannabinoid response is to think about hard physical exercise – do you get the so called runners high – this is the on demand production of anandamide flooding your body to create that feeling of elation and achievement. The other endocannabinoid is 2ag that has a stabilising effect on the production of anandamide. The endocannabinoid system is a truly remarkable evolutionary development that is an On Demand feedback loop in most individuals.

What does all this actually mean?

The production of endocannabinoids happens in response to the physiological condition of the body. If there is stress or pain or in fact a whole range of conditions that the body may face the production of endocannabinoids happens the messenger molecules are then received by receptors in different parts of the body and trigger reaction to try to bring the body back to balance, homeostasis. The endocannabinoids rather than flooding the body once received in the receptors are broken down by enzymes and reabsorbed back into the body.

That in a nutshell is the process of a fully functioning Endocannabinoid system. But as with all things in the body process can go wrong. There are conditions like cannabinoid deficiency syndrome that occur because the endocannabinoid system does not produce enough endocannabinoids or there may be times when the system needs a top-up to cope with pain or other internal issues. This is where Phytocannabinoids can be a real asset to the in management of the condition. Phytocannabinoids like CBD CBG or THC can activate and regulate the endocannabinoid system. Bringing the body back to balance.

The endocannabinoid system is a remarkable feedback loop that can help in so many different areas because it interacts with so many of the physiological processes in the body. It is remarkable to thanks that the reproductive system is highly reliant on the ECS process to initiate and regulate the ovulation process this Is just one of the areas that are so closely intertwined with the little known ECS system. Again this is why cannabis can be so effective in managing a range of conditions. The point here is to understand the foundations of why Cannabis can be so effective but to be responsible in its use. Overusing Cannabis too young or using it often can be detrimental and the rise of conditions like Cannabis hyperemesis syndrome are functions of overdriving the ECS and the benefits of cannabis can be lost. Please consult clinicians before using cannabis because it is not effective for everyone and can have negative outcomes for small minorities. We here at the Extract believe in 21 st century cannabis and the real benefits that the majority can get from responsible use.
