The human body produces cannabinoids naturally known as ENDOCANNABINOIDS. When our bodies are ENDOCANNABINOID deficient, plant based cannabinoids can be used to balance our body’s systems.
THE ECS (ENDOCANNABINOID SYSTEM) IS MADE UP OF THREE PARTS:
2. Receptors in the nervous system and around your body that endocannabinoids and cannabinoids bond with enzymes
3. Enzymes that help break down endocannabinoid and cannabinoids
The ECS WORKS WITH RECEPTORS FOUND IN SELECT TISSUES. WE HAVE TWO KINDS OF CANNABINOID RECEPTORS:
1. CB1 which is in the central nervous system (Brain)
2. CB2 which is in the peripheral nervous system, the digestive system, and specialized cells in the immune system (Body)
THE ECS HELPS REGULATE IMPORTANT FUNCTIONS IN YOUR BODY
