Posted by Alternative Biologics Admin in News

If you’re like us, you are always in search for things that help us feel and perform at our best. Hemp Extract (CBD) has been a hot topic with a ton of benefits associated along with the misinformation out here. Here are some basics:

Hemp Extract or Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of many cannabinoids found in the hemp plant. We have a system in our bodies related to these compounds: the Endocannabinoid System (ECS). Let’s break down what this system is and everything you need to know about it.


In the 90s, scientists discovered endocannabinoids, molecules similar to cannabis that are naturally produced by our bodies. The ECS is a cell-signaling system where endocannabinoids bind to receptors throughout the body. These receptors can be found in our brain, nerves, skin cells, immune system, bones, liver, GI tract, and more.

The ECS’s big job is to maintain homeostasis, supporting harmony and stability in the body. This keeps essential functions in check (for example: body temperature, water & oxygen levels, pH, and blood sugar). The ECS has even been linked to the runners or workout high!


It helps regulate sleep, mood, stress, metabolism, memory, immunity, pain, inflammation, muscle formation, and reproductive health. Some refer to it as the bridge between Body & Mind.


Your body produces endocannabinoid molecules and they bind to receptors. The two main receptors are CB1 and CB2, and these are found in different places throughout the body. When the molecules bind to receptors, you’ll begin to feel the effects.


Researchers are continually exploring how exactly CBD impacts the ECS. They believe it may help stimulate the system and can prevent endocannabinoids from being broken down, enhancing their positive effects.

Bottom line: Hemp Extract (CBD) works with your body to help you feel balanced, focused, and supports exercise recovery from the inside out.
