Did you know cannabis has been used as a medicinal plant since the beginning of human history?
Despite it's name, the endocannabinoid system (ECS) plays a much bigger roll than just getting you high. Actually, the endocannaboid system may have the most receptor sites out of all the receptor systems in your body.
While its true the ECS does allow the body to interact with the compounds that get you high, it's main function is to keep your body in chemical harmony and balance - or 'homeostasis.'
Homeostatis is critical to obtaining overall body wellness and happiness, and the ECS is the regulator of that balancing act. ECS regulates pain, appetite, sensation, inflammation, mood, stress response and more. Not only in humans, but in animals too!
