If you’re a fan of all things cannabis, you’ve probably heard about the endocannabinoid system (ECS) - the homeostatic superhero of our bodies that regulates everything from mood to appetite. But did you know that the ECS also has a hand in something called neurogenesis?
Did you know that because of cannabis, getting high on yourownsupply has never been easier? It's all because of our body's endocannabinoid system (ECS), a major regulatory system, which was discovered because people love their cannabis...and have for almost 5000 years.
Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD) are the most known active compounds in the cannabis plant. Over the last several decades, these cannabinoids were discovered to modulate the ECS.
To dig deeper into the ECS's inner workings, we first need to define some basic biology. Briefly, we will describe what elements comprise the nervous system, its internal communication process, and how the neurons talk to each other.
After that, we'll discuss 5 easy ways to enhance your ECS. Ready? As always at Tro Nation, #buccalup!
Before starting Troscriptions in 2019, we did a huge amount of research into the history of nootropics, the many varieties out there, and we tried many of them along the way. Although our brains usually enjoyed the ride (with some notably terrible exceptions), it became clear that no one could agree on what a nootropic really was and what it wasn’t.
Cannabidiol (CBD) is certainly no longer the new kid on the block. In the last five years, it has exploded on the market in products that range from shampoos, skin creams, tinctures, suppositories, and (you've guessed it) troches! So why is CBD use so widespread?
