Your Trusted Source Video Series #2: The Problem

In part two of the Your Trusted Source video series, we are introduced to the endocannabinoid system and cannabinoids, including phytocannabinoids like CBD, which is found in high concentrations in the hemp plant. Cannabinoids also occur naturally in the human body and are even located in breast milk.

Discovered late last century, researchers are just now starting to unravel how the endocannabinoid system contributes to the body’s central functions. However, we know that endocannabinoids and their receptors are embedded throughout the body in cell membranes in the brain, organs, connective tissues, glands, and immune cells.

When cannabinoid receptors are stimulated, a variety of physical functions occur in the body. The endocannabinoid system modulates appetite, pain, inflammation, thermoregulation, intraocular pressure, sensation, muscle control, energy balance, metabolism, sleep health, stress responses, motivation/reward, mood, and memory.

However, since phytocannabinoids have been removed from the contemporary human diet for so long, researchers have coined a new condition known as Clinical Endocannabinoid Deficiency Syndrome, a modern condition linked to a lack of cannabinoids in our systems.

Learn more about the endocannabinoid system and the role of cannabinoids by visiting our CBD hemp oil education page and be sure to check back each week to view the next video in our Your Trusted Source video series.
