What is Our Endocannabinoid System?
Our endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a biological system in our bodies that regulates the natural production of cannabinoids. Yes! Our bodies naturally produce cannabinoids. The ultimate goal of cannabinoid intake & production is to achieve a bodily state of homeostasis. This means maintaining a stable internal environment, despite fluctuations in the external environment. Our modern diets DO NOT provide us with enough cannabinoids to sustain optimal levels of cannabinoids within our bodies. So, supplementing our intake with natural cannabis extracts is integral to achieving this state of homeostasis and really taking full advantage of our endocannabinoid system.
“It is because of their all-pervasive activity that cannabinoids can impact on so many illnesses.”

Endocannabinoid System (ECS) Explained
The Many Faces of Cannabis
Our endocannabinoid system has the ability to regulate our pain sensations, appetite, mood, sleep schedule, memory, digestion, and more. The fact that cannabinoids have the ability to affect all of our bodily systems (cardiovascular, nervous, endocrine, immune, digestive, reproductive, excretory, musculo-sketetal) means that it has the ability to heal a wide range of ailments, not just the physical type like: arthritis, tendinitis, sore back, etc. Cannabinoids can also help with deep rooted issues like: seizures caused by epilepsy, pain from fibromyalgia, and even prevent Parkinson’s disease tremors. Cannabinoids also protect your cells with their anti-oxidant properties that neutralize harmful free radicals generated by UV rays.
Most of us only know about the most common cannabinoid: THC (tetrahydracannabinol), but there are a whole slew of them that are not so popular as their psychoactive counterpart. There are also non-psychoactive constituents including: CBD (cannabidiol), CBG (cannabigerol), THCV (tetrahydracannabivarin), CBC (cannabichromene), and more. The fact that there are so many cannabinoids available to our endocannabinoid system means their potential for healing is almost limtless. Modern science allows us to effectively separate every element of cannabis from one another so we can identify what effects each has individually and apply them as necessary to different areas of our bodies depending on what is troubling us.
Reefer Madness, Madness
For a long time there has been a taboo attached to cannabis despite it’s many great properties and potential for healing simply because some individuals use it to “get high”. Even though it is socially acceptable to use alcohol to get drunk and alcohol has absolutely no medical value. This backwards mentality has brought about the advent of what some people refer to as “synthetic cannabis”, but this term is highly misleading. This so-called “synthetic cannabis” is nothing more than a mixture of chemicals whipped up in a lab by people who don’t believe in the healing powers of cannabis. However, scientific inquiry and patient testimonials both indicate that natural, herbal cannabis and extracts have superior medical qualities to synthetic cannabinoids. So, always make sure you are getting natural cannabis products derived from cannabis or industrial hemp.
