What does the ECS do?
Cannabinoid Receptors are found all throughout the body, giving them a wide variety of functions. However, certain receptors are more concentrated in specific regions. CB1 receptors are abundant in the central nervous system. CB2 receptors are more often found on immune cells, in the gastrointestinal tract, and in the peripheral nervous system. Athletix CBD oil is derived from USDA Approved Hemp and is a CBD supplement in a high concentration.
The diversity of receptor locations shows just how important endocannabinoids are for day-to-day bodily function. They help regulate sleep, digestion, mood, motor control, immune function, reproduction and fertility, pleasure and reward, pain, memory and temperature regulation.
Endocannabinoids are the chemical messengers that tell your body to get these processes moving and when to stop. They help maintain optimal balance in the body, also known as homeostasis. When the ECS is disrupted, any one of these things can fall out of balance.
