THE SCIENCE BEHIND
What is the Endocannabinoid System?
The Endocannabinoid System (ECS) is a cell-signaling, biological network that has been identified in all animals, with the possible exception of insects.
The ECS is responsible for the homeostasis of our physiological responses including our mood, memory, sleep, stress, metabolism, appetite, pain, immune function, energy, and others. To help you picture it, you can think of the ECS as a computer operating system that helps us ‘run’ smoothly.
What makes up the ECS?
The ECS contains endocannabinoids and cannabinoid receptors that interact in a lock and key fashion to encourage a homeostasis in the body. Additionally, the ECS contains enzymes to help break down endocannabinoids once the body gets what it needs from them.
Cannabotech products have been designed to specifically target the endocannabinoid system as part of a premium wellness routine.
What are Functional Mushrooms?
Functional mushrooms, also known as medicinal mushrooms, have been used in traditional medicine for well over 2000 years in East Asia. They contain highly nutritive compounds such as beta glucan polysaccharides, triterpenes, and terpenoids, and other compounds essential to sustaining life. In fact, researchers like Paul Stamets have noted that humans share approximately 50% of their DNA with mushrooms.
Much like the endocannabinoid system, functional mushrooms are thought to support biological functions including the immune system, nervous system, endocrine system, digestive system, cardiovascular system, and more. For these reasons, Western scientists and medical professionals have now taken interest in them. Moreover, they are becoming increasingly popular in high-end food supplements and specialty grocery stores.
Our Proprietary M²CBD Formula
Mushrooms serve as a vast neural network or “natural internet” for the earth, as renown mushroom researcher, Paul Stamets, calls it to protect and maintain a healthy ecosystem. Likewise, they offer the body support with their high nutritional content. Similarly, cannabinoids offer equally valuable properties that encourage a homeostasis in the body. Together, we believe that functional mushrooms and cannabinoids can offer a synergistic balance for a comprehensive wellness routine.
With this in mind, we created a unique M²CBD formula as the next generation of preventative care products designed to interact with the Endocannabinoid system and physiological activities associated with today’s health burdens associated with the modern, fast-paced life including sleep, stress, immunity, muscle and joint fatigue, skin health, and more.
