Endocannabinoid Deficiency


In our bodies, we have a system of physiology that constantly maintains homeostasis (balance) at a cellular level. This system is called the Endocannabinoid System (ECS). Endocannabinoids and their receptors are present throughout the body: in the brain, organs, tissues, glands and immune cells. Your body is constantly producing it's own cannabinoids, and these molecules function a lot like all the cannabinoids found in the hemp plant. These receptors impact appetite, immune function, metabolism, memory, mood, pain sensation, reproduction, sleep, stress, and temperature. 

When our bodies are unable to produce 

enough cannabinoids, it is called a Clinical Endocannabinoid Deficiency (CECD).  Renowned cannabinoid researcher Dr. Ethan Russo first proposed the theory of clinical endocannabinoid deficiency in 2004. In a study, published in Neuro-Endocrinology Letters, Russo suggested that deficient cannabinoid levels might explain why some conditions develop like fibromyalgia, chronic pain, anorexia, depression, irritable bowel syndrome, migraines, multiple sclerosis (MS), PTSD, neuropathy, Huntington's, Parkinson's, Autism, just to name a few.

The cannabinoids found in hemp have an extraordinary symbiosis with all mammals than any other plant on earth. It has a rich chemical profile that supports our ECS in a variety of ways that promote wellness. It can up regulate your system so that your ECS will work more efficiently, and optimal to promote health internally. It will keep your body resilient to all the toxins and changes in the environment.
