WHAT IS THE ENDOCANNABINOID SYSTEM (ECS)?

The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is the physiologic system involved in establishing and maintaining health. The human body contains endocannabinoid receptors throughout: In the brain, organs, connective tissues, glands, and immune cells. Endocannabinoids and cannabinoids bind to these receptors to help create balance within the body.

The ECS regulates many things within the body including sleep, mood, memory, appetite, reproduction, pain sensation, and immunity.
