Join us as we discuss about the endocannabinoid system (ECS), a receptor system in the human body uses, and how hemp derived CBD interacts with that system. The ECS was discovered a little more than 25 years ago, but it is still not well understood in the medical profession. Learn about the pros and cons of medical cannabis versus hemp based products. We will discuss endocannabinoids, phyto-cannabinoids (CBD and THC), and other constituents that attach to receptors of the ECS and how all of these can be a benefit or a danger to your health.
