Poor nutrition, especially the lack of Omega-3 fatty acids, negatively impacts your endocannabinoid system. This leads to sub-par mental and physical performance, and slower-than-normal recovery times.
A recent study published in Nature Neuroscience found that “Nutritional Omega-3 deficiency abolishes endocannabinoid-mediated neuronal functions."
Omega-3 fatty acids play a critical role in maintaining proper functioning of the endocannabinoid system. They work by keeping the endocannabinoid receptor membranes healthy and active, as well as growing new receptors. They also help synthesize cannabinoids by producing specialized enzymes that regulate their metabolism in the body.
If you don’t get enough Omega-3 in your diet or through supplementation, you will not receive the full benefits of CBD.
