THE ENDOCANNABINOID SYSTEM

The Human Body’s Endocannabinoid System (ECS)

The ECS is a biological system composed of endocannabinoids (cannabinoids naturally produced in the body such as anandamide and 2-AG), enzymes that synthesize and degrade the cannabinoids, and cannabinoid receptors (primarily CB1 and CB2) found in the central and peripheral nervous systems. The main purpose of the ECS is to maintain homeostasis in the body. 

From the central nervous system to the musculoskeletal system, we have more cannabinoid receptors that are multifunctional regulators in the human body than any other system. There is no other plant, adaptogen, herb, or any other phytocompound that serves the multiple functions phytocannabinoids serve in the human body. Research has shown that introducing external phytocannabinoids could be useful to support a variety of health issues.
