The ECS, or Endocannabinoid System, is one of the body’s systems globally involved in maintaining homeostasis or stability and balance, connecting all of the body’s organs and systems through the central and peripheral nervous systems. The ECS is being tested and evaluated for its role in pain management, anti-inflammatory effects, anti-anxiety, memory, appetite suppression, movement disorders including seizures, and ADHD to name a few. Although the body has its own endogenous cannabinoids, plant-derived cannabinoids like CBD, CBDV and THCV found in Hempzorb81™ have been shown to help regulate the ECS via two types of cannabinoid receptors found throughout the body – CB1 and CB2. These receptors are found most abundantly in the brain and immune system respectively (see figure below).
