The human body naturally produces endocannabinoids and cannabinoid receptors to support the endocannabinoid system. As we know, the endocannabinoid system is key to our health… so, how do we help ensure that this system continues to regulate efficiently?

There are many natural ways to bolster your endocannabinoid system. It has been shown that regular exercise, body weight control, stress reduction and proper nutrition play a huge roll in this. While exercising and body weight control may be a self-explanatory process, reducing stress and proper nutrition likely requires guidance.

Scientific studies have shown that homeopathic methods of reducing stress have proven highly beneficial. Methods such as acupuncture, massage therapy and osteopathic manipulation have all yielded positive results in the bolstering of our endocannabinoid system.

In terms of dieting, reducing the intake of foods that cause inflammation while maintaining the intake of healthy fats becomes essential. Therefore, foods such as sugar, trans-unsaturated fats and refined grains are not recommended. Meanwhile, consuming healthy fats like those in fish, nuts, and olive oil plus fruits and vegetables, are definitely the way to go!

Unfortunately, for those with serious medical conditions and ailments, some of these options are either not realistic or just not enough. The cannabinoids received by use of cannabis/marijuana or a specific cannabinoid extract is there to help fill this gap. The use of cannabis directly improves cannabinoid signaling. With how large, diverse, and crucial as the endocannabinoid system is, this direct improvement from cannabis is why it is the only medicine to benefit such a wide array of medical ailments.
