The Endocannabinoid System is the largest system of nerve receptors in the central nervous system and controls a great many functions from modulation of major body functions to mood and memory regulation. The Endocannabinoid System uses two endocannabinoids (cannabinoids produced in the body) as neurotransmitters in the system but it has also been found to engage phytocannabinoids (cannabinoids produced in plants) as well. Cannabidiol (CBD)  which is the non-psychoactive cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant, is one of the phytocannabinoids that the ECS interacts with very well.
