Endocannabinoid System ECS:
The Endocannabinoid System (ECS) helps regulate and control our bodies.
The ECS regulates and controls different parts of the body, including learning and memory, emotional processing, sleep, temperature, pain, inflammation, immune responses, and eating
Cannabinoid-based therapy, or CBT, encompass the application of over 100 different cannabinoids infused in products including the two most common, Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and Cannabidiol (CBD)
Cannabidiol, better known as CBD, is the second most active ingredient in cannabis (marijuana) behind THC.
Hemp is defined as having 0.3% or less THC. CBD derived from hemp does not cause intoxication/euphoria when taken by itself.
Cannabinol (CBN) is a by-product of THC, produced when THC oxidizes. Basically, as THC is exposed to heat and light, it breaks down into CBN. It does not cause intoxication/euphoria
The presence of both CBD and CBN combined is believed to have more activity on the ECS supporting your body’s ability to create a gentle sedative effect that may help some older adults sleep better

Melatonin is a hormone that plays an important role in sleep.
Our bodies release more melatonin at night, which promotes healthy sleep. However, as we get older, our natural melatonin production declines.
