Your body has an endocannabinoid system (ECS). Your ECS is like a chain that weaves all throughout your central and peripheral nervous system, and some of the chain links have locks on them. These locks are opened with keys made up of certain cannabinoids and terpenes. Once unlocked, it sends new messages to your brain. Some of the benefits associated with these new messages are: analgesic, anorectic, antibacterial, anticachectic, anticancer, antinociceptic, antidepressant, antidiabetic, antiemetic, antiepileptic, anti-angiogenic, anti-inflammatory,
anti-ischemic, antimicrobial, antineoplastic, anti-proliferative, anti-psoriatic, antipsychotic, antispasmodic, anti-tumor, anxiolytic, bone-stimulant, immunosuppressive, intestinal anti-prokinetic, neuroprotective, vasorelaxant.
