“Is your Endocannabinoid system (ECS) in balance?

Discovered in early 1990s, the human endocannabinoid system serves vital biological functions in our body. The role of the endocannabinoid system is to help control energy balance and plays a very important regulatory role in the secretion of hormones related to reproductive functions and response to stress.

Your body actually makes your own cannabinoids to act upon receptors (in a lock-and-key fashion) from head to toe, including brain, thyroid, fat cells, kidneys, muscle cells, immune cells and more.

CBD stands for Cannabidiol. They are what we call phytocannabinoids derived from hemp. Some people have endocannabinoid deficiency and therefore have sub-optimal pain threshold, sleep disturbances, digestive issues, mood regulation problems and many other impaired physiological functions affected by the ECS.

Come find out about the difference between hemp and marijuana, and how to pick out good quality products.

To emphasize CBD is NOT medical marijuana, but still can be very helpful for your health!”
