Why Is CBD So Important To Us Our Endocannabinoid System (ECS)?
Wait; Endo What?
Scientists initially discovered the (ECS) endocannabinoid system (mouthful, right?) while trying to understand the effects of cannabis. They named this biological system after discovering it’s involved in many of the basic functions of the human body. Here we would give you a list of all the many benefits but unfortunately we cannot. The FDA prohibits all CBD company's from making any claims about their ability to treat specific aliments and/or health conditions.
As a leader in the CBD market one of our top priorities is to be in compliance with FDA regulations while creating quality CBD products for our many vocal and loyal customers. As clinical research trials grow we look forward to the day to be able to scream from the top of the mountains of the many stories and benefits we hear daily! We encourage you to give LiveLife Ceuticals Premium CBD products a try!
- eNDOCANNABINOID sYSTEM (ecs)
Education is everything to us so in this section if there is a term that you are not familiar with you can click on it to learn more about it. Knowledge is Power!
There are 2 types of cannabinoids. Endocannabinoids which are cannabinoids produced within our body naturally and photocannabinoids which are produced in plants like hemp and cannabis. The two most known and abundant plant cannabinoids are tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) which is the only psychoactive cannabinoid; which is what gives you that high feeling and cannabidiol (CBD).
Cannabinoids are fat-soluble chemical messengers that activate 2 types of receptors found in our Endocannabiniod System throughout our entire body in which to help with improving the ability to maintain homeostatis. There are at least 113 cannabinoids isolated in hemp and although we only produce our products from CBD derived from hemp with less then the legal limit of .3% THC these same cannabinoids can be found in cannabis as well.
All cannabinoids offer many different benefits that you probably are already hearing from so many people sharing their experiences with you but again because of FDA compliance regulations we am not qualified and/or allowed to share it with you.
The Endocannabinoid System also known as ECS for short is made up of the largest number of neuromodulatory CB1 and CB2 receptors throughout our body. All people and animals other than insects have an ECS. The discovery of the ECS by Dr. Lumir Hanus in the early 1990's is often thought of as a huge discovery because of how they identified that the ECS worked to balance the body and trigger biochemicals that promotes homeostasis which is a way to improve the natural healing of the body
These tiny little receptors are only activated or turned on by cannabinoids which are considered agonists. As cannabinoids are presented to the body naturally or consumed through photocannabinoid extractions like CBD the body begins to balance itself in so many critical aspects and here is just a small list of what the ECS regulates: Immune System, Central Nervous System, Appetite, Metabolism, Memory, Sensory, Mood, Stress Levels, Anxiety, Nausea, Cognitive Function, and so much more.
The ECS receptors CB1 CB2 can be found in our body’s: central nervous system, skin, digestive tract, and reproductive organs. They are also found in nerve tissue, lungs, liver, intestines, kidneys, lymphatic tissue, and the spleen.
Here is a fun fact. Have you ever heard of runners high? Well that is your endocannabinoid system kicking into high gear!
The CB1 receptors are found primarily in the brain, peripheral and central nervous system. The CB1 receptors are amazing in how they work and unlike the CB2 receptor the CB1 receptor is always on but kicks in when cannabinoids are presented to it; this is called constitutive activity. The CB1 receptor is on the surface of cells and its function is to bind to the outside of the cell so it can generate a signal on the inside of the cell. Even crazier is that CB1 receptors can send multiple signals at once and in combination of different ligands can change the pathway more beneficial for certain conditions over another while reducing side effects; this is called biased agonism.
Recently scientists have found CB1 receptors inside mitochondrial and has been confirmed to influence our memory, anxiety, depression and many other psychiatric issues. Since the CB1 receptor floats in lipid membrane fluid it interacts with the opioid system, the serotonin system, the dopamine system and various other receptors. If you activate the CB1 receptor too many times with things like THC; cells literally swell up around the receptor leaving little cell surface to be accessed and that is why people build a tolerance to THC. But since not all CB1 receptors are the same types and change in different parts of the brain different types of THC can develop different levels of tolerance that others.
The CB2 receptors are predominantly found in white blood cells, the lymphatic and immune system. They are also found in the spleen, thymus, tonsils, blood, skin. CB2 receptors are also found together with CB1 receptors in the eyes, stomach, heart, pancreas, digestive tract, bones, blood vessels, brain, brainstem, liver and more. They are responsible for serval therapeutic effects including the powerful anti-inflammatory responses. The CB2 receptor offer therapies for treatment or management of a range of pain conditions including acute pain, chronic inflammatory pain and neuropathic pain. They are also helpful with treating neuroinflammatory or neurodegenerative diseases like multiple sclerosis, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, Huntington’s disease, strokes, atherosclerosis, inflammatory bowel diseases, ischemia/reperfusion injury, renal fibrosis, osteoporosis, liver cirrhosis and cancers.
In 1993 the CB2 receptor was cloned while studying the effects of cannabis but the cloning of the receptor unlocked so many mystery’s and allowed scientists to learn exactly what activated and locked these receptors. This led to the finding of the endocannabinoid system which was named after the plant in which led to the discovery of it.
There’s a lot of research being done on cannabinoids right now because the therapeutic potential is limitless. For this reason, CBD is on the verge of a widespread movement.

CBD Triumphs Over Age; lol!
As I have gotten older I have been dealing with endless changes to my body. I will save you my sob story but I will tell you the list of things I've tried is exhaustive. I tried changing my diet, allergist, acupuncture, chanting, hypnotism, essential oils, high alkaline water, endless remedies and more. The list goes on...
I was DONE trying things but I'm so glad my husband convinced me to give CBD oil a shot.
I was completely shocked at the way I felt after using them on a regular basis. It knocked out many of the things I was dealing with so this was a great triumph for me.
~ From the biggest cynic of all.
I have tried other CBD tinctures over the last couple years but they all fell short compared to quality of LiveLife Ceuticals tinctures. It works great for me and my favorite is their 1000 mg tangerine tincture; it's the best tasting that I have tried! I am also now a fan of their salves.
Quality CBD products that I will continue to recommend to others ❤️
