99% of the people I speak with have no idea they have an ENDOCANNABINOID SYSTEM. The entire role of this system is to maintain balance in our bodies. When we are out of balance due to stress, diet and other factors our body welcomes disease, inflammation and more.

Yes cannabis is medicine but it works because we have this system that responds and interacts with the plant. It also produces compounds similar to THC and CBD.

I made a quick video you can download about this system. 🙃https://bit.ly/ECSbasics
