The endocannabinoid system (ECS) was first discovered by scientists in the 1990’s after finding cannabinoids produced within the body that mimics the effects of phytocannabinoids on our body. Cannabis has phytocannabinoids including CBGa, THCa, CBDa, THCVa, CBDVa, and many others. It has been widely accepted that when these compounds are “activated” through the process of controlled heat, also known as decarboxylation, they provide our body with medicinal benefits.
Cannabis for Wellness
With the next wave of cannabis education reaching the masses, we have continued to see the adoption of consumption techniques into more modern approaches. One method that particularly sparks our interest is the practice of consuming raw cannabis leaves and flowers directly from the plant. This provides your body with the rich nutrients unadulterated; which allows your bodies immune system the necessary foundation to reach homeostasis over time. This is ideal for individuals that do not desire the euphoric effects associated with higher dosing, but require a supercharge of phytocannabinoids to engage their endocannabinoid system to reach optimal wellness. Simply put, the cannabis plant delivers the greatest nutrient and cannabinoid profiles without cooking or processing.Tags: Cannabis Wellness, Phytocannabinoids
