First, let’s be clear. Even if you’ve never used CBD products a day in your life, there’s already cannabinoids in your system. Your body produces cannabinoids very similar to the CBD, CBN, and CBG found in hemp plants through your own endocannabinoid system (ECS). Your body depends on the production of such naturally occurring cannabinoids in order to function properly. The primary precursor to these naturally occurring cannabinoids are Omega-3 fatty acids, which are transformed into the cannabinoids your body needs to work correctly.
As we age, our endocannabinoid system becomes less effective, and less efficient. Also, if your body does not have enough of these fatty acids, or if you have an Omega-3 deficiency due to diet or a medical condition, your body can’t produce enough cannabinoids. This can cause a myriad of problems. The combination of a diminished endocannabinoid system and an Omega-3 deficiency can often lead to the development of significant medical problems and conditions. A few such conditions include irritable bowel syndrome, fibromyalgia, constant headaches, eczema, and more.
The cannabinoids produced by your ECS are essential in nearly every aspect of your physical health. Your endocannabinoid system is essential as a modulator for your brain, your immune system, and your endocrine system (which regulates hormones, your metabolism, sexual function, sleep, your mood, and more)
