What is the impact of CBD gummies on the autonomic nervous system in stress response?

The body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS) comprises receptors, enzymes, and endocannabinoids (cannabinoid-like molecules created by the body). Enzymes synthesize endocannabinoids, which bind to the receptors to trigger specific responses, then the enzymes break down the endocannabinoids, and the process begins anew. The ECS plays a crucial role in regulating vital functions such as stress response. Gummies containing CBD (a cannabinoid found in hemp) boost ECS functions by inhibiting the breakdown of endocannabinoids, allowing them to further activate ECS receptors.
