What exactly is the ECS?

even better question. The Endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a web of communication, by way of the nervous system, through which our bodies maintain an internal state of balance, also known as homeostasis. The ECS is made of endocannabinoids (neurotransmitters, like serotonin and dopamine), the receptors targeted by the endocannabinoids, and the enzymes that break down the endocannabinoids. At this point, since you likely have not heard of it, your mind may be blown. For us, learning about the ECS was like seeing a sunset for the first time.
