Our Endocannabinoid System (ECS)
Little was known about the endocannabinoid system until recently, but now this system has been discovered it has been acknowledged that it is crucial to help the body remain healthy. This system is an integral part of us as it controls our bodies’ main functions including the central nervous system, hormone regulation and immune health to keep us in balance. The phytocannabinoids that are the compounds of the cannabis plant respond with the receptors CB1 and CB2 that are situated throughout our body. They infiltrate our system in order to mimic to some degree our natural endocannabniods anadamide and 2AEG. There is evidence to suggest that using CBD daily can truly benefit the body – that’s why I am such a huge believer in the cannabis plant.
Supplementing our ECS with the Right Foods
Many people don’t know that our bodies are making cannabinoids all the time. Our cells produce and use cannabinoids to respond to stress, illness and injury in order to remain healthy and balanced. But it’s not all about cannabis; other foods and activities can help the endocannabioid system. Here are some examples.
Organic Food is Key
The first thing to look at is what are we eating. Supplementing with CBD is great but you have to eat well too. Toni from Feed Me Momma will help you top up your cannabinoids with some amazing vegan combinations with nutritious vegan treats, with some CBD added too. You can book the amazing Supper Club for something fun and new to try which enlightens both your body and mind.
We love yoga and exercise to help boost the ECS system. We have virtual and group classes with Tara in London.
As the skin has a huge number of receptors that are responsive to cannabinoids, massage is the perfect therapy to top up your endocannbinoid system.
The Leaf Elite have virtual consultations online as well as a professional team situated at exclusive locations across the UK. We are also partnered with Greenway DNA, so don’t forget to check out your unique CBD dosage guide which is available on request.
