MEET YOUR ECS
It’s Why Chill Gels with Full Spectrum CBD
Can Gently Bring You Back in Balance
Only a handful of plants work so many wonders that scientists call them “promiscuous” healers.
The humble willow is one. It yields aspirin, which is useful for headaches, fever, toothaches, muscle soreness, swelling from injuries, even preventing blood clots.
The hemp plant is even more talented.
Scientists are studying CBD from hemp for everything from cardiovascular health to mental disorders to eczema, and they’re continually discovering more uses.
How can one plant carry such huge promise for so many human complaints? Especially stress?
Because there’s an ancient system right inside your body for handling stress that the phytocannabinoid compounds in hemp fit perfectly. It’s called the endocannabinoid system, the ECS.
The cannabinoids in hemp (called phytocannabinoids) circulate through your ECS as if they belonged there in the first place.
And no one even knew the ECS existed until the 1990s.
In 1963, Dr. Raphael Mechoulam, the world’s most distinguished cannabis researcher, discovered CBD. Then in the mid-90s, Mechoulam and his team discovered two human endocannabinoids—anandamide and 2-arachidonoylglucerol, known as 2-AG. That led to the discovery of the ECS.
“By using a plant that has been around for thousands of years, we discovered a new physiological system of immense importance. We wouldn’t have been able to get there if we had not looked at the plant.”
— Raphael Mechoulam
The ECS is a network of receptors for your “stress cascade hormones.” That’s why CBD works. It makes your own stress-handlers bind to those receptors better.
