Endocannabinoid system


The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is made up of two key parts:

1) Cannabinoids produced by your body

2) Special receptors that become activated by these cannabinoids

These cannabinoids produced by your body are just like the ones found in CBD and THC. 

In fact, cannabinoids are even found in breast milk — that’s how important they are.

And get this:

There are more cannabinoid receptors found in your body than any other type of receptor!

So when different endocannabinoid receptors become activated, they can help improve your mood, appetite, and memory — as well as reduce pain and inflammation.

That’s why scientists now believe we should supplement cannabinoids, just like we supplement vitamins, to keep the ECS running smoothly.

Bottom line:

The endocannabinoid system is critical for maintaining a healthy, youthful, and pain-free body.
