Many (if not all) of us did not even know we had an Endocannabinoid System (ECS) before starting to supplement with phytocannabinoids like cannabidiol (CBD). We didn’t know our ECS is responsible for helping the body maintain homeostasis or its ability to maintain inner balance. And, of course we were not aware that our eating habits affect the function of our Endocannabinoid System.
All mammals have an endocannabinoid system (ECS). It’s named after the plant compounds in cannabis, which lead to its discovery. The ECS controls physiological, cognitive, and nervous functions like mood, memory and pain. We can enhance the function of our ECS not just by supplementing with CBD hemp oil but also by adopting a nutritious diet.
Whether it’s the cardiovascular, digestive, nervous or even the endocannabinoid system, we need to feed the body nutrients to help them work properly. It’s no wonder why your mom told you to eat your vegetables. Making sure that we eat right is often easier said than done. That’s why microgreens are such a good choice to help supplement your diet.
Microgreens are young vegetable greens that fall somewhere between sprouts and baby leaf vegetables. They have a concentrated nutrient content – about 5 times greater than their mature plant counterparts. They contain higher vitamin, mineral and antioxidant levels and a wider variety of polyphenols and other antioxidants.
The benefits of microgreens can now be found in a nutritious and delicious line of teas. Microtea grows and freeze-dries their microgreens to lock in all the nutrients. They then blend the microgreens with some of your favorite tea blends such as Jasmine green or chamomile.
And as a perfect complement to the health benefits of microgreens and tea, Microtea mixes in full spectrum CBD hemp extract. If you like tea, these are sure to become a staple in your pantry.
