Is Your Endocannabinoid System Effectively working?

Endocannabinoid System

Is Your Endocannabinoid System (ECS) effectively working?

Our endocannabinoid system [ECS] is vitally important to maintaining homeostasis throughout our bodies and minds. It is one of the most important communication systems in the body.

our bodies and minds. It is one of the most important communication systems in the body. An

An imbalanced ECS may contribute toward conditions such as depression, anxiety, fibromyalgia, migraines, IBS, obesity and more.

Our brains have a complex network of receptors, central nervous system and immune system

that are activated by two natural chemicals (endocannabinoids) called anandamide and 2-AG.

The receptors (CB1 and CB2) are everywhere in our bodies. Endocannabinoid activity is

involved in a myriad of physiological functions; sleep, appetite, sexual reproduction, pain,

immune system, mood, memory and cell growth.

Scientists believe the ECS works as a master biological regulator, a bit like a conductor in an

orchestra, making sure that all the individual sections work in harmony.

Due to our current culture (lifestyles of the 21 st century) of rushing, living fast, eating processed

foods, self-medicating with alcohol/drugs, sleep deprivation, increased stress, our

endocannabinoid system is straining and struggling. The results of the ECS struggles is

resulting in a litany of health conditions ranging from fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis, chronic

fatigue, MS, anxiety and depression.

Signs your endocannabinoid system may be off-balanced and straining:

1. High or oversensitivity to pain:

Scientists have discovered that a number of conditions relating to oversensitivity to pain such as

fibromyalgia, IBS, migraines, and MS share what is known as endocannabinoid deficiency. This

refers to lower levels of the endocannabinoids anandamide and 2-AG as well as fewer

endocannabinoid receptors.

2. You feel anxious or depressed

While there is a variety of reasons someone may be anxious or depressed, a deregulated

endocannabinoid system is believed to be a biomarker.

Studies indicate that low levels of 2-AG (a key endocannabinoid) are present in depressed

states and PTSD. In addition, normal CB1 endocannabinoid receptor expression in the brain

appears to play a pivotal role in maintaining mental health as well: a study trialing a new obesity

drug found that blocking the CB1 receptor had the unwanted side effect of causing anxiety.

Good news: something as simple as going for a power-walk or run could be a good way to give

our ECS a mood boost. We know that the euphoria experienced through intense exercise is as

much to do with anandamide as endorphin production.

3. You Have an Autoimmune Condition

Over the last fifty years there has been a dramatic rise in autoimmune conditions. Elevated

stress levels certainly play a role, but could an off-kilter endocannabinoid system also be a


A fully functioning  ECS is vital to keeping our immune system in balance. It acts rather like a

dimmer switch, giving our immune system a boost when it needs a helping hand, and

dampening it down when over-activated. Immune over-activation occurs in autoimmune

disease. Instead of fighting off outside invaders, our immune system literally turns in on itself,

reaping havoc in the body.

We know that elevated endocannabinoid levels and CB2 receptors are found in patients with

autoimmune diseases and conditions associated with chronic inflammation. It is thought that this

increased activity is the ECS trying to bring our systems back into balance again.

Compounds in cannabis and hemp like CBD have been found to reduce inflammation in the

body and, thanks to their antioxidant properties, may even protect autoimmune sufferers from

further cell damage.

4. You Find it Hard to Lose Weight

Above we spoke about a deficient ECS, but it’s also possible for our endocannabinoid system to

become over-activated, causing weight gain and even diabetes. That’s why an obesity drug

trialed was found to block endocannabinoid CB1 receptors. Scientists, however, are unsure

if overeating causes increased CB1 signaling, or whether obesity itself is a consequence of an

overactive endocannabinoid system. Either way, the goods news is that diet and exercise as

well as quality Omega 3 will bring your endocannabinoid levels back into balance again. Our

endocannabinoid system works tirelessly on our behalf.

plants. It is a non-psychoactive component of cannabis. Scientists have proposed Clinical

Endocannabinoid Deficiency Syn drome (CEDS) as a spectrum disorder

in the body.
