WHY DOES CANNABIS WORK?
The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a group of receptors located throughout the human brain, central nervous system and peripheral nervous system.
WHAT IS IN CANNABIS
Cannabinoids (THC, CBD, CBN, etc.) are the diverse chemical compounds found in the cannabis plant that bind and fit into the existing network of ECS receptors throughout the human body.
Like any type of substance the human body does build up a tolerance to cannabis.
Terpenes are the aromatic organic hydrocarbons within the cannabis plant that gives cannabis its unique smell and taste.
