Jump-starting Your Endocannabinoid System
Jump-starting Your Endocannabinoid System

As the previous section demonstrates, the endocannabinoid system is involved in practically every major disease.

In most cases, a deficiency of endocannabinoid activity contributes to disease, but excess activity can also be pathological.

The aim of enhancing your ECS does not necessarily entail upregulating cannabinoid receptors and endocannabinoids throughout your whole body, although it may. Healthy practices that support your ECS will help it regulate itself, including increasing or decreasing receptors and endocannabinoids where necessary.

ECS empowerment can help anyone return to true homeostasis.
The practices discussed below are non-hemp methods of ECS enhancement. The use of phytocannabinoids as a tool for enhancement is examined after these methods. Hemp derived CBD is certainly one of the most powerful ways to support the ECS. However, direct ingestion of CBD, especially long-term consumption of CBD with high levels of endocannibinoids, seems to be one of the few ways that ECS function can be disregulated through overstimulation. As described earlier, CBD and particularly excessive CB1activation contribute to pathology in certain cases. It is very challenging and perhaps even naturally impossible to overstimulate your ECS through non-phytocannabinoid techniques.

Despite the potential for harm, the actual and comparative risk of CBD consumption is extremely low, and long-term ingestion of extracts with a balanced phytocannabinoid profile is safe for most people.
Strengthening the ECS through other means would likely reduce the amount of
phytocannabinoid supplementation necessary for many patients.
