You are made of Cannabis...

Did you know?  Your body, like the Cannabis plant, has naturally occurring cannabinoids?  " Endocannabinoids and their receptors are found throughout the body: in the brain, organs, connective tissues, glands, and immune cells. In each tissue, the cannabinoid system performs different tasks, but the goal is always the same: homeostasis, the maintenance of a stable internal environment despite fluctuations in the external environment." (norml.com)

This Endocannabinoid System, working much like the nervous system, has an intricate web of Cannabinoid Receptors that are specially designed to process Endocannabinoids (cannabinoids found in the body) as well as Phytocannabinoids (plant-based cannabinoids).  These Endocannabinoids are found throughout the body, improving communication to help heal, minimize pain, and bring balance to your body and mind.

 

Just when you thought you knew everything about yourself...
