About the Endocannabinoid System in the Human Body

Source: US National Institutes of Health

“In the past decade, the endocannabinoid system has been implicated in a growing number of physiological functions, both in the central and peripheral nervous systems and in peripheral organs. More importantly, modulating the activity of the endocannabinoid system turned out to hold therapeutic promise in a wide range of disparate diseases and pathological conditions, ranging from mood and anxiety disorders, movement disorders such as Parkinson’s and Huntington’s disease, neuropathic pain, multiple sclerosis and spinal cord injury, to cancer, atherosclerosis, myocardial infarction, stroke, hypertension, glaucoma, obesity/metabolic syndrome, and osteoporosis, to name just a few.”

Endocannabinoids and Phytocannabinoids

Endocannabinoids created within the human regulate the correct physiological functions of the body called homeostasis. Phytocannabinoids found in Cannabis plants are a perfect supplement to the body’s own endocannabinoids and thus are helping to balance and stabilize the physiological functions.

CBDium THC free – our 100% natural dietary supplement – contains, among other beneficial substances like minerals, vitamins, flavonoids terpenes and others, various cannabinoids and therefore is suitable as a supplement for endocannabinoids within the human endocannabinoid system.
