Our hemp extract formula is packed full of healing phytocannabinoids, which get to work right away by stimulating the body’s endocannabinoid receptors located in the skin, before moving on to those in the deeper tissue layers below. Discovered in 1992, the endocannabinoid system (ECS) is like an air-traffic controller for your body. It is responsible for regulating your responses to pain, mood, hunger, illness, and more. The ECS oversees every major system in the body, including your immune, digestive, and nervous system.
See, the human body is self-regulating system. Too hot? Your body produces sweat to cool you down. Spiking blood sugar after a meal? Your body secretes insulin to lower it. Like a gymnast on a balance beam, our bodies are constantly fluctuating to keep balanced and healthy–a process called homeostasis, or balance. But this is pretty behind-the-scenes work your body is doing, we didn’t always understand that there was a single system responsible for maintaining this homeostasis: the Endocannabinoid System (ECS). Think of the ECS as a gateway to all the individual functions an organism can perform around those many relax, eat, sleep, forget, and protect functions.
