The activation of cannabinoid receptors on epidermal cells regulates normal function of the skin as a barrier. CB1 and CB2 receptors make up the Endocannabinoid system. When CB1 or CB2 receptors are engaged, the functions of epidermal cells are modified which is an important process for the healthy physical defense of the body. Endocannabinoids also suppress inflammation and regulate sebum production in the epidermis.
The role of the ECS as the body’s innate balancing mechanism is key to the regulation of everything from appetite, energy metabolism, fertility and immunity to sleep, mood, pain perception and memory. There is virtually no function in the human body that does not benefit from a healthy Endocannabinoid System.
So what can we do to make sure our Endocannabinoid System is functioning at its best? Fortunately, quite a lot. From a lifestyle perspective, low impact aerobic exercise, time in nature, mindfulness meditation, and a healthy diet rich in antioxidants, fermented foods, prebiotics and omega-3 fatty acids have all been shown to support a healthy ECS.
There are plant-derived compounds that have the ability to activate our Endocannabinoid System. The most famous of these - the one you’ve likely heard the most about and the one we specialise in... cannabidiol, or CBD, derived from the cannabis plant. CBD is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid found in the (industrial) hemp plant used in our products. It’s derived from the Cannabis Sativa plant known more commonly as the Cannabis plant.
