There is an intricate group of receptors within the body called the endocannabinoid system (ECS). This complex network impacts many areas of health and is most abundant in the brain and immune system. Studies have shown the ECS to be responsible for important functions such as sleep, relaxation, inflammatory responses, and cognitive ability. The ECS is normally fueled by the healthy production of endocannabinoids. The challenge arises when endocannabinoid production becomes impaired or slowed. Phytocannabinoids innately occur in the hemp plant and can serve as a replacement for the endocannabinoids your body may be lacking.
