Holiday Advice – 12 Ways To Care For Your Endocannabinoid System
By Felecia L. Dawson, M.D.Learn more about the Endocannabinoid System and human health, from Atlanta, GA-based healthcare professional Dr. Felecia Dawson, M.D., who will be a featured speaker at the 7th Annual NoCo Hemp Expo, March 26-28, 2020, National Western Complex, Denver, CO.
We are being inundated with all things CBD! CBD or cannabidiol is coming at us in every form from oil to infused clothing and linen. CBD may be relatively new to the market, but it seems our bodies know this compound well because CBD interacts with our endocannabinoid system (ECS). Although, the ECS is ancient, most doctors don’t know much about it because its initial components were discovered between 1988 and 1997. Scientists stumbled upon it when they were trying to figure out why cannabis affects us the way it does. Most medical schools still don’t even mention the ECS, leaving many physicians in the dark.
The ECS is present in all humans and animals. It helps us maintain balance and homeostasis. It governs our nervous, immune, hormonal and other systems. It plays a role in everything from our ability to think, move and digest; to our ability to fight off infections and cancer; to our ability to experience pleasure. It is made up of enzymes, endocannabinoids (similar to the ones in cannabis, like CBD) and receptors. The two major endocannabinoids are anandamide (AEA) and 2-arachidonoylglycerol (2-AG). There are enzymes that build and break down these endocannabinoids. Lastly, are cannabinoid receptors, CB1 and CB2, which are distributed throughout our bodies and all over our skin. When the endocannabinoids (keys) insert into the cannabinoid receptors (locks), magic happens!
