Cannabinoids bind to cannabinoid receptors that are linked in the human body to the endogenous cannabinoid system (EKS or ECS). EIR is a very important physiological system and is present in our body to regulate and maintain health. How It Works? The main task of the endocannabinoid system is homeostasis, that is, the existence of a stable internal (cellular) environment in a dynamic, ever-changing external environment. The competence of the endocannabinoid system is therefore equilibrium, and if anything is out of balance, the original state must be restored. This system enables communication between cells, tissues and organs in our system, while also taking care of our health and immune system. It regulates important bodily functions such as sleep, appetite, reproduction, fertility, forgetting, and stress protection and prevention. This system acts as a sort of emergency call system – when the nervous system is over-stimulated by injury, stress, intense emotions or illness, too many nerve impulses travel through the neurons, and the cells are burned out, so the system eliminates cannabinoids that calm the nerves. When the nerve is stimulated, the nerve cells secrete endocannabinoids and the nerve subsides. Thus, our body can also function in adverse circumstances. However, due to the diseases of modern times (poor nutrition, lack of movement, introduction of toxins, drugs into the body, radiation…), our endocannabinoid system is repeatedly exhausted or destroyed because it is not able to produce enough endocannabinoids needed for the body. Cannabinoids found in cannabis (phytocannabinoids) are very similar to endocannabinoids produced by our body, so plant cannabinoids can bind to receptors in the endocannabinoid system – the body recognizes them as their own and therefore does not reject them, so phytocannabinoids activate processes in the body instead of endocannabinoids. The health of cannabis is therefore reflected in the regulation of a multitude of processes – simply, in self-healing. What is more, some studies confirm that cannabis cannabinoids kill poor, cancerous cells, without destroying the immune system.
