All animals, including vertebrates (mammals, birds, reptiles, and fish) and invertebrates (sea urchins, leeches, mussels, nematodes, and others) have been found to have endocannabinoid systems. Even invertebrate species as primitive as the Hydra are known to have an ECS. Research suggests that a balanced ECS promotes appetite, sleep, mood regulation and stability, gait, pain perception, memory, body temperature, immunity, reproduction, and fertility in both humans and animals. Researchers believe that understanding the ECS of different species can help them understand its role and the development of clinical applications.
