In recent times there has been much research into the active ingredients of cannabis and how these substances help in combatting pain and supporting the healing process of the body. One of the most import discoveries is that the brain has its own cannabis system. This system is known as the endocannabinoid system.
Endo is derived from the Greek meaning within, inner, absorbing, or containing. A Cannabinoid is one of a class of diverse chemical compounds that acts on cannabinoid receptors in cells that alter neurotransmitter release in the brain
The cannabinoids produced in the body are almost identical to those found in cannabis ( Phytocannabinoids) and the body therefore readily accepts the Phytocannabinoids as the body’s own product.
The endocannabinoid system is involved in numerous processes in our bodies. Recent research has recognized that it plays an important role in the modulatory system in the functioning of the brain, endocrine, and immune tissues. It appears to play a very important regulatory role in the secretion of hormones related to reproductive functions and response to stress.
Throughout the body, the endocannabinoid system is functioning to help the body to maintain homeostasis (balance) and health. A good functioning cannabinoid system is therefore imperative for optimal health. The CBDa products of Catany World lend the necessary support to maintain this vital system.
