Our bodies have two main Cannabinoid receptors; CB1 and CB2, as indicated below, which work with our brains. The word ‘Endo’ means ‘within’ , hence the Cannabinoid system within our bodies.
CB1 receptors are abundant in our brains. CB2 are more abundant outside the nervous system, in particular our immune systems.
Hemp and its extracts (CBD) are rich in vitamins B1, B2, B6, D, E, Omega 3 & 6, Antioxidants and Amino Acids. In fact all Amino Acids essential for an optimum healthy lifestyle are found in the hemp plant, plus over 220 other compounds.
By following a healthy lifestyle, including increased consumption of hemp products it may be possible to ‘kick start’ our ECS systems to maintain and support our overall well-being, and quality of life.
