Endocannabinoid Nutrition (ECN)

When Raphael Mechoulam discovered the Endocannabinoid System (ECS) in 1992, he opened the floodgates into an entirely new understanding of the body’s natural rhythms. In subsequent decades, the groundbreaking research done by Mechoulam and his colleagues has become instrumental in helping to remove the stigma of cannabis and hemp. Here at VEDA: Leader in Endocannabinoid Nutrition, we are committed to providing you with the best possible alternative medicine for a variety of needs. But what is ECN?
It’s easy to get lost in the constant stream of new vocabulary produced by the legal cannabis market. We’re here to help. In a previous blog, we explored endocannabinoids, so now let’s talk about ECN. Endocannabinoid Nutrition (ECN) is the result of emerging 21st century science and research that validates the hemp plant’s natural therapeutic properties. It is essentially the most direct tool that allows your body to unlock its full potential in achieving balance.

Hemp’s Natural Therapeutics

All of us have a built-in system that is responsible for maintaining the body’s homeostasis. The endocannabinoid system exists in order to receive all the cannabinoid goodness available to us within the hemp plant. It is non-psychoactive so, no, you won’t get high. However, by using high-quality products derived from healthy hemp plants – you’ll surely be tickling the proper receptors and enjoying countless benefits. Hemp and ECN help the endocannabinoid system regulate mood, sleep, metabolism, pain, memory, inflammation, and much more!
Specifically, broad spectrum hemp oil is one of two extracts that are ideal for ECN. Instead of isolating one cannabinoid in the extraction process, broad spectrum CBD products contain all of the original properties present in the hemp plant. By using tested and trusted products such as our Broad Spectrum CBD Vape pen, you’ll have the VEDA advantage. Not only will you be getting an experience made from nature’s finest quality industrial hemp plants, you’ll also be enjoying the overall benefits of the ‘entourage effect’, which occurs when two or more cannabinoids work together to bring you fast relief.
CBD isolates are the opposite of broad spectrum, but they also play a large role in endocannabinoid nutrition. For those looking for a full-on CBD (cannabidiol) experience without the additional cannabinoids, terpenes, and plant components found in the hemp plant, isolates are great option that also work well in maintaining ECN. It is only the beginning for cannabidiol and the mainstream public’s acceptance of its benefits. We hope that as we progress further into the legal hemp era there will be more research, more awareness, and therefore more available concrete evidence of cannabidiol’s therapeutic potential.

Unlocking Your Body’s True Potential

What do we mean when we say ECN helps you “unlock the body’s ability to rejuvenate and heal itself”? It’s simple: the power to reach your true wellness potential exists within you! 2018’s Hemp Bill federally legalized hemp, and so now it is that much easier to resist relying on dangerous pharmaceuticals that may or may not get at the core of the problem.
A healthy ECN balance is vital for us to feel like our best selves. Often times when we start to experience unexpected health challenges (especially in advanced age) it just means that our bodies are not making enough endocannabinoids, and therefore responsible supplementation is necessary. VEDA products’ proprietary formulation helps to nourish and restore balance in the delicate endocannabinoid system. Hitting the right receptors, ECN helps you to unlock your body’s true potential!
