The Endocannabinoid System
The endocannabinoid system is in all mammals and is a major organ system in our bodies. Unfortunately, it is not taught to doctors in medical school despite being discovered in the 80s and 90s. The endocannabinoid system consists of CB1 and CB2 receptors all over the body. Cannabinoids like THC, CBD & CBN fit into these receptors like a lock and key. Once the system is activated it can finally do its job which is to put our bodies in balance. Cannabinoid deficiencies can lead to your mood, sleep, pain, hormones, gut and/or immune system feeling “off”. Giving cannabinoids back to the system like you would for a vitamin deficiency can help you feel back to balanced.

The Entourage Effect is made of Terpenes Cannabinoids Flavonoids
Smoking or vaping cannabis leads to hundreds of botanical compounds entering our body. Each botanical compound has unique effects, but their behavior can also change in the presence of other compounds. This ability for compound’s behaviors to change in the presence of other compounds is the entourage effect.
For example, your mood may change depending on who you are around. You are likely to behave differently when you’re alone verse when you’re at a big party. Your mood and personality that other people see is different depending on your environment.
Modes of consumption
There are many different ways to consume cannabis. When looking for ways to consume cannabis, consider how long you would like it to last and how soon you want the effects to begin. If you are wanting to try cannabis, but still have reservations, try delta8 and CBD products first! They are a great way to notice some effects without having too intense of an experience.
