Endocannabinoid System
“The endocannabinoid system is intimately involved in tissue healing in the face of inflammatory conditions, correlating clinically with prevention and treatment of inflammation-mediated pain.” – Fine & Rosenfeld, 2013

The Endocannabinoid System

  • CB2 receptors are present in the human dorsal root ganglion (DRG) sensory neurons, mediating nociceptive pain2
  • Cannabinoid receptor agonists modulate nociceptive thresholds.
  • CBD is a positive allosteric modulator at α1 and α 1 β glycine receptors.
  • Influences opioid, 5HT3, and N-methyl-d-aspartate receptors responsible for pain modulation
  • Cannabidiol (CBD)
  • Not psychoactive

This little-known system helps maintain balanced, healthy cells.

Every human possesses an advanced physiological system known as the Endocannabinoid System (ECS). This crucial regulatory system is already making cannabinoid-like structures that foster cellular balance throughout nearly every biological system in your body.

Millions of Receptors

Cannabinoid receptors, found on the surface of your cells, are ubiquitous throughout the body and “listen” to the environment around each cell. They transmit information on current conditions to the cell and thereby jump start the proper cellular response, if necessary. Properly functioning receptors have the crucial function of creating Homeostasis in your body’s cells which keeps you healthy and operating at your peak. The most studied are receptors CB1 and CB2, with CB1 most prevalent in the nervous system, and CB2 occurring outside the nervous system, in organs like the stomach, heart and liver.

Naturally Occurring

It may come as a surprise that your Endocannabinoid System is already creating cannabinoid-like structures within your body that very closely resemble the cannabinoids in Ananda Hemp’s products. Endocannabinoids like Anandamide and 2-AG are made when the body senses an imbalance, these molecules are created on-demand to specifically target issues inside your cells that need fixing.
