What is the Endocannabinoid System?

The Endocannabinoid System (ECS) is a collection of cell receptors within a mammal's body. Scientists discovered this system in the 1990s.

Phytoannabinoids work with the mammalian Endocannabinoid System (ECS), which is a vast receptor system that helps support homeostasis and health.* This receptor system exists in the immune system, the central nervous system, and within many organs. The ECS accepts our bodies' own endocannabinoids as well as the phytocannabinoids found in hemp.

The ECS is designed to support cells and healthy immune system function, despite fluctuations in our external environment.*

A human's endocannabinoid system affects many regions of the body, including functions of the immune system, the central nervous system (including the brain), organs, connective tissue, and glands.

The ECS supports various biological tasks, including energy & balance, immune function, memory, metabolism, sleep, and the function of the autonomic nervous system.*

A phytocannabinoid is a compound that fits into a phytocannabinoid receptor. Hemp produces over 80 different cannabinoids that work to support the endocannabinoid system.*

CW Hemp products are whole-plant extracts that include a range of beneficial compounds found in hemp, including phytocannabinoids and other phyto-compounds (such as terpenes and flavonoids) that work to support your health.*

To support our bodies endocannabinoids, CW's natural phyto-cannabinoids can be introduced to support the ECS's major receptors, CB1 and CB2. This helps to maintain proper balance, allowing for immune system support.*
