HEcS: Human Endocannabinoid System


After 45 years of research, scientist have only just begun to understand the importance of Human Endocannabinoid System (HEcS). The discovery of the HEcS is arguably the most-important discovery in human physiology in the late Twentieth Century. Research has revealed that the HEcS is responsible for maintaining and controlling the body’s homeostasis, or balanced regulation of every system in the body.

It does that through two known receptors called CB1 & CB2 (See Diagram Below). While the body produces its’ own endogenous cannabinoids, scientists suggest that most people are now suffering from “Cannabinoid Deficiency”. Without sufficient cannabinoids in our diet, the HEcS operates at less-than-peak efficiency, resulting in a general decline in overall health. Supplementing our diets with full-spectrum phytocannabinoids is being Scientifically studied as an essential component to achieve optimal health.

How much CBD should I take? Individual dosing requirements may vary, from person to person, based on a number of factors including severity of the condition or extent of the endocannabanoid deficiency. Experiment with the dosage that's best for you.

What is Full Spectrum?
The complete plant profile. The complex biochemical interaction of the matrix of phytocannabionoids working synergistically in the body is referred to as the “entourage effect”. Cannabidiol (CBD) is but one of more than 100 known phytocannabinoids that interact with the body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS) to help restore normal balance and physiological homeostasis.

Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil not only contains a huge array of cannabinoids but also a variety of essential vitamins, minerals, fatty acids, protein, chlorophyll, terpenes, flavonoids, and fiber. One of the most important studies relating to Full-Spectrum Hemp oil took place at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem’s Hadassah School in 2015. It compared the performance of a full-spectrum extract with one that contained a CBD isolate only. The study concluded that full spectrum was more effective when fighting pain and inflammation.
