Cannabis is quite an amazing plant, created by mother nature with well over 100 different cannabinoids that have surprisingly different effects on the body.
The Endocannabinoid System (aka ECS) is a complex cell-signaling system inside the human body. Never heard of it? Maybe because it was only identified in the early 1990’s – by researchers exploring THC, a well-known cannabinoid.
CBD is new, but it’s not. The compound has been around forever, but we’ve only identified it as CBD in recent years. As laws change we are learning more about the medicinal properties of cannabis, and specifically CBD.
