Your Body and the Six Plants it Loves

The properties of cannabis are chemically similar to your body’s endocannabinoids. This allows them to interact with your cannabinoid receptors — both CB1 and CB2, Picture THC and CBD as the keys to your house and the cannabinoid receptors as the keyhole, perfect fit. When this interaction occurs, neurotransmitters are released. Depending on the neurotransmitter, the chemical sends a message between cells which then have roles in immune function, stress, sleep, appetite, etc.

As we’ve said, because cannabis is a living, breathing plant that simply requires sunlight and water to survive, other special plants among it contain phytocannabinoids, which also have remarkable effects on our body when they interact with our ECS:

Black Truffle

Just when you thought truffle couldn’t get any better...
Black truffle produces anandamide. When bonded to CB1 receptors it triggers the release of mood-enhancing chemicals which play a role in the neural generation of pleasure and motivation.

Cacao

“Food of the Gods,” cacao is also loaded with anandamide. In addition to the mood enhancement mentioned above, anandamide also regulates memory, appetite, and pain perception.

Echinacea

This one’s a little different… echinacea contains cannabimimetic, not cannabinoids, but the chemical properties still interact with the body’s ECS, specifically, the CB2 receptors. Echinacea plays a role in regulating the immune system and inflammation.

Black Pepper

The phytocannabinoid properties in black pepper interact with the body's CB2 receptors and provide potent anti-inflammatory effects.

Kava

A plant grown in the soil of the Pacific Islands, compounds in Kava bind to CB1 receptors and have the capabilities of easing anxiety and chronic pain.
