Why The Name "Endocannabinoid System?"

Posted by Dr. Karl R.O.S. Johnson, DC on Wed, Jan 08, 2020

People are slowly coming to understand that while CBD (cannabidiol) and THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) both come from the Cannabis plant, they are quite different compounds.

Namely, unlike THC, CBD will not make you high.

Cannabinoids are compounds that interact with the body's endocannabinoid system (ECS), a complex, body-wide cell-signaling system designed to help maintain homeostasis, or balance in the body.

You can learn more about the ECS and CBD in my other posts on my blog.

Your endocannabinoid system (ECS) is active even if you don’t use cannabis

CBD research and treatment go mainstream

For years, the topic of CBD for medical use was controversial. However, now that it has been approved for general use in the US, CBD (cannabidiol) is now widely researched and used for a variety of health conditions.

CBD is NOT psychoactive. While both cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) come from the Cannabis plant genus, they are quite different compounds:

  • THC is known for its psychoactive effects (ie: the "high" feeling).
  • CBD is not a recreational drug and doesn't offer the psychoactive effects of THC.
