Cannabis is medicine.
Cannabis is made up of over one-hundred compounds called cannabinoids that perfectly bind to receptors in our body's Endocannabinoid System (ECS) to promote and maintain health. Cannabinoids play an important role in regulating brain, endocrine, reproductive and immune function, appetite, pain-sensation, mood, memory and more.
Due to the misclassification of cannabis as a Schedule 1 Controlled Substance, we do not yet understand the vast medicinal potential of this anti-inflammatory and antioxidant-rich plant medicine.
Let's start with the science.
