In order to understand how CBD works, you need to know a thing or two about the endocannabinoid system, or ECS.

The ECS is a biological system in all vertebrate species.

Or, in layman's terms, balance.

The ECS is said to impact almost every major function in the body including but not limited to:






And so much more!

How is one system able to influence so many different processes?

Our endocannabinoid system is made up of receptors, enzymes, and endocannabinoids - AKA cannabinoids our body produces.

A regulatory system, our ECS seems to play an important role in keeping our bodies balanced.

By this point you might be wondering…

What does CBD have to do with the ECS?

Well, let’s just say, this is where things get really interesting.
