    Signs of Endocannabinoid Deficiency

    Signs of Endocannabinoid Deficiency

    Understanding Endocannabinoid Deficiency requires a basic knowledge of human body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS).

    ECS is a cell communication mechanism within the human body. It is a complex system responsible for regulating a range of major body functions, including sleep, memory, reproduction, hunger and mood.

    Endocannabinoid Deficiency occurs when the efficiency of the ECS is affected. The theory of CED or Clinical Endocannabinoid Deficiency was first put forth by Dr. Ethan Russo.

    According to Dr. Russo, many medical conditions are a result of deficiencies in the body’s neurotransmitter systems (messaging systems that help the nervous systems communicate with the rest of the body).

    A common question that people new to CBD ask is about the time that the compound takes to show effect. CBD, on an average, can take 2 to 6 hours to show its effects. There are a variety of factors that influence this duration though.

    The time taken by CBD to work in the body depends on some key factors such as the form of CBD being used and the body’s absorption efficiency.

    CBD vaping products, for example, enter the lungs directly after intake. This immediate absorption into the body makes CBD available to the body’s ECS or endocannabinoid system within a very short time.

    The Endocannabinoid System or the ECS is an intricate system of cell-signaling within the human body. The cell-to-cell signaling facilitates the performance of a range of bodily activities. Proper functioning of the ECS is crucial for good sleep, memory, appetite, mood and reproduction.
