• One of the most exciting things about cannabis and hemp, and health products that can be created from such, are the relationship between cannabinoids (like CBD) and our body’s Endocannabinoid System (ECS) that regulates many aspects of ‘homeostasis’ through CB1 and CB2 receptors.  From Leafly.com: “Broadly speaking, the endocannabinoid system comprises two receptors (CB1 and CB2), two endogenous compounds that activate these receptors (endocannabinoids N-arachidonoylethanolamide [AEA] and 2-arachidonoylglycerol [2-AG]), and two metabolic enzymes (fatty acid amide hydrolase and monoacylglycerol lipase) that control the synthesis and breakdown of these endocannabinoids.

Moreover, CBD was shown to reduce anxiety in patients with social anxiety disorder." The Endocannabinoid System, which research is finding...
