All mammals have an Endocannabinoid System (ECS) made up of receptors and neurotransmitters in the brain, immune system, central and peripheral nervous system.
The ECS’ purpose is to keep us in a state of homeostasis, which it does by regulating many physiological processes that can be related to mood, apetite, and more.
When out of balance, many issues can arise. This area is still being studied and, as a nutrition supplement, we cannot make health claims about our products.
In order for the Endocannabinoid System to function, the body utilizes compounds called cannabinoids. Some of these natural chemical compounds are produced within the body (endo-cannabinoids), but we can also supplement them from plants (phyto-cannabinoids), like CBD found in hemp oil.
