We should thank the late President Reagan for his ‘War on Drugs” campaign.
You may not be aware of this interesting fact that has benefited all of us.
In the 1980’s, President Reagan poured tens of millions of dollars into a study to prove that marijuana damages the human brain, the Reagan administration ended up subsidizing a series of studies that culminated in the discovery of the endocannabinoid system. The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a collection of cell receptors and the corresponding molecules (agonists) in the human body. This system helps to regulate appetite, fertility, immune function, memory, mood, motor control, pain, pleasure, reproduction, sleep and temperature regulations. When the ECS is in balance, one experiences homeostasis.
Endocannabinoids are molecules that act as chemical messengers that bind to cannabinoid cell receptors and tell the body to do certain things. The human naturally produces endocannabinoids with the help of consuming foods like fatty acids found in nuts and fish. The 60 cannabinoid also can bind to the cannabinoid receptors that cause different effects. The molecules found in cannabis/hemp plants aid in the human body’s endocannabinoid system, which is responsible for many vital functions.

CBD specifically interacts with the CBD1 & CBD2 receptors that send signals to wake up and strengthen the immune systems naturally.
THE SECTIONS OF OUR BRAIN:
Spinal Cord– controls Peripheral sensation including pain
Medulla– controls Nausea and Vomiting, chemoreceptor
Cerebellum– controls Movement
Cerebral Cortex– controls Higher cognitive function
Basal Ganglia- controls Movement
Hypothalamus- controls Appetite
Hippocampus– controls Learning, memory, stress
Thi is because our endocannabinoid system is intricately linked to our nervous system and immune system, as well as our brain and digestive system. Quality CBD is an effective form of natural treatment to many ailments and illnesses.
