Endocannabinoid System

Did you know that your body has an Endocannabinoid System (ECS)?

The Endocannabinoid System (ECS) is found in all vertebrates. It plays a crucial role in helping our bodies' other systems stay in balance, or homeostasis. 

Our cells have cannabinoid receptors that are made to receive and use endocannabinoids  (made by our bodies) or phyto-cannabinoids (made by a variety of plants).

Our bodies produce endo-cannabinoids on demand when they are needed. They help with the nervous system and hormone system primarily, but secondarily with digestive and respiratory systems.
