Importance of the Endocannabinoid System

Updated: Oct 14, 2019





It is a very exciting time for people everywhere that are suffering in one way or another from Clinical Endocannabinoid Deficiency. The scientific literature is in and the information simply is not out. In researching this wonderful system we found an Ivy League textbook called The Endocannabinoid System. In this well sourced book it touches upon various systems that have been found to be influence by the Endocannabinoid System.


* Cardiovascular

* Metabolic

* Reproductive

* Immune Functioning

* Pain Perception

* Wake / Sleep Cycles

* Appetite & Food Intake

* Energy Balance

* Dopamine Transmission

* Synaptic Plasticity

* Motor Activity

* Inflammation

* Digestion

* Memory Creation

* Mood Pathologies

* Cognition

* Regulation cell migration

* Neurite Remodeling

* Neurogenesis

* Axonal Growth


All of these are critical in maintaining homeostasis. Homeostasis is defined as the tendency toward a relatively stable equilibrium between interdependent elements, especially as maintained by physiological process.


Take as an example the influence on regulating inflammation. Inflammation is a natural protective reaction the immune system has in response to infection or physical damage. Yet when we do not have what we need to maintain homeostasis, this process can damage the body and is the root of virtually every dis-ease. Endocannabinoids play a critical role in the regulation of our inflammatory response.


In the same way that the brilliance of our bodies innate intelligence knows how to heal a cut, all of our physiological process are trying to bring about balance at all times. When our body has what it needs to work holistically, it does so. As more research is done, it seems likely that we will come to find out that the root of many different conditions is found in a deficient endocannabinoid system.


CNS plasticity disorders, degenerative diseases and conditions influenced by the Endocannabinoid System.


* Depression

* Anxiety

* Insomnia

* ADHD

* Dementia

* Parkinsons

* Schizophrenia

* Epilepsy

* Fibromyalgia

* Rheumatoid Arthritis

* Irritable Bowel Syndrome

* Headache


It is exciting to be a part of the true healthcare revolution as the power of health is returning to the individual. Offering an education about this system and having access to quality Hemp Extract is our core mission and we are happy to do both!


Have a blessed day.
