Cannainoid Receptors & The Endocannabinoid System: A New Science
The science of how the mind and body respond to pain, neurological signals, and stress has been intensively studied for as long as there has been medicine. But a new development -- one that has really only advanced in the past twenty-five years or so -- has been in understanding cannabinoid receptors and the "endocannabinoid system" (ECS).
Imbalanced Endocannabinoid System = Increased Disease Risk
When endocannabinoid levels decline, especially in connection to chronic disease, infllamation, low omega-3 and vegetable intake, and other stresses that take a mental and physical toll on our health, phytocannabinoids can help. They can prevent to breakdown of our own natural cannabinoids and research is finding they can effectifely treat a host of diseases, from pain to epilepsy.
