Get in touch with your Endocannabinoid System

The Endocannabinoid System (ESC) function in a large role in your body's homeostasis affecting multiple biological symptoms. For example, the affected biological symptoms often include sleep, appetite, pain, inflammation, memory, mood, and even reproduction. The ECS brings balance to the body. As a result, it is no surprise that scientists observed changes in ECS activity in a number of diseases. For an indepth analysis you can read this research document.

Did you know?

The total number of endocannabinoid receptors in the body out numbers all other neuromodulatory receptors found in the body combined. This number includes receptors for the neurotransmitters serotonin and dopamine. For instance, anandamide alone shows the most receptors in the brain and is critical for maintaining a healthy central nervous system.

What is CBD?

Cannabidiol (CBD) naturally occurs as a compound found in the resinous flower of hemp. Today, the properties of CBD and other cannabinoids are continuously tested by scientists and doctors around the world. CBD remains one of more than a hundred phytocannabinoids. Understanding the scientific nature and possible interactions of phytocannbinoids remains a central focus on the importance of CBD education and research.

A breif history of hemp


10,000 B.C.

Hemp became Earth’s first agricultural industry.Hemp allowed people of the Neolithic era to graduate from wearing animal hides to wearing clothes and shoes fashioned from cloth. Hemp proved to be a durable textile with its insulating and absorbent qualities. The hemp seed was utilized as the main grain and eventually pressed into oil.

30 B.C. - 200 A.D.

The Roman Empire extends from The Middle East across to Britain including Gaul (modern France), Spain and Northern Africa. A time of peace and commerce under Roman rule, hemp and cannabis are cultivated for both industrial and medicinal effect. In Pliny the Elder’s The Natural History (Naturalis Historia, 79 AD), writes about hemp rope and marijuana’s natural analgesic effects. Many other medicinal texts (or pharmacopoeia) hail cannabis’s restorative effects, and also list their descriptions of preparation and use. Pliny’s notation validates this. “The roots (of the cannabis plant) boiled in water ease cramped joints, gout too and similar violent pain.”

40 A.D.

Lucius Junius Columela of Spain, was a Roman soldier and farmer who penned an extensive 12 volume agricultural work, The De re Rustica. Columela’s work outlined the methods of hemp cultivation of the time. The De re Rustica could be considered the first “grow book” of the Roman Era.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture promoted the War Hemp Industries Corporation program to encourage U.S. farmers to cultivate hemp. To reeducate farmers on the cultivation and uses of hemp, the Department of Agriculture produced a film called “Hemp for Victory”.
